Making a embossing wheel

Postby chrisash » Thu Nov 01, 2018 11:32 am

I need to make a embossing wheel, basically a cylinder with a image around the cylinder that can be used say on paper to roll the cylinder along the paper and leave a impression which is NOR text but a STL 3D design about 2mm thick

I can see how you would do it with text but not with using a 3d Image
something like shown here https://www.shop.bunkhousetools.com/Emb ... els_c3.htm

Perhaps something like this?

FreeCAD 0.18-000094.png (44.93 KiB) Viewed 216 times

file:
wheel.FCStd
(718.25 KiB) Downloaded 5 times

workflow:
- making a sketch about geometry to emboss
- wrap it around a circular face using curvesWB:SketchOnSurface (SoS)
- boolean fragmenting using PartWB
- extract subfaces for further offset using lattice2WB
- embossing letter faces using PartWB 3D-offset

So if you try to redo this, you have to install these WBs with AddonManager.
Also you will have to install used font file (impact.tff)

It was made with Paint, so being text is irrelevant.
