I need to convert this image into a 3d model so I can carve it out with the xcarve, ive spent the better part of 4hrs today trying to figure out fusion360, trying to figure out how to usethat image-2-surface thing. I can get it
converting an image to a 3D asset is only possible with special height map images. It is impossible with regular pictures afaik. Some tools may offer the functionality but I’d dare to say results would vary widely depending on the image you feed it. You’re better off looking for a turkey stl and squashing it flat, and go from there
I used artcam at a previous employer, I don’t remember the exact steps but it had a tool to convert a flat image into bas-relief. It took some tinkering because you have to provide some numbers for it to work with. It will do positive and negative along the z If I recall correctly.
