    Recently i have been speaking to my gran-dad and he has been talking about the war. He was telling me how he was involved in the engineering department. He had his blazer on him which had the attached picture.
    I have tried in several programs but cant seem to produce a decent relief carving of the photo so i can make him a wooden carving of his badge/logo. i would like to remake this for him as he is very proud of having this badge.

    Can anyone help me on programs or help produce a basic .stl file?

    I've tried mesh cam art and art cam, any other types of programs that could be used?

    Thank you, Simon

    Image will need some pre processing before feeding it into something to create the relief, need to seperate out the depths :

    it's only a simple model but I can make it more complex, that alone has taken me 2 hours.

    Well, It's in Cinema4d. it's decent software.

    and apparently it exports to STL.....

    So from here do you move to a different program to finish off?
