Engraving designs into rune stones


#1

I’m kind of new to sketchup but I am using it to create props and things for some short animated films I am working on. Can anyone tell me how I could create a set of rune stones? I have created the shape but can’t get the designs to save along with the shape of the stone…lol.

I sure would appreciate any help anyone could give me.

Can you share a SKP file of what you got so far?


#3

Are trying to engrave characters or “runes” INTO the stone ?

You create a face (a closed loop of edges) and push it into the shape with the PushPull tool.


#4

You can engrave or inset runic characters into a rock like this (or were you planning to make the characters raised above the face of the rock?) Pretty similar procedure either way.

Thank you so much for you kind help sir but this is beyond my abilities. I am going to pay someone to
produce them for me.

I gave up way too easily and wanted to return and try until I am successful. Thank you to all who were kind enough to respond. As soon as I have a finished model, I will post it. Thank you again…now to work…lol
