Hi! Please, can you advise me how to make a 3D effect with an edge? I am attaching a picture from the Internet. I've already asked several people and even a master digitizer with thirty years of experience didn't know...

Hi Roman, have you managed to achieve this?

To Digitize for 3D Puff, you need to increase the density, cap the ends and contour underlay low stitch length,

Yes, these are generally well-known facts. Please check the photo Roman attached. It is not just 3D; it has different convexities. Can you advise on how this was achieved?

I can only guess at how the contoured center ridge line on the letters was achieved. By MY eye, it seems to have been sewn on what appears to be "Naugahyde" or something similar (a man-made leather-like upholstery material). If that is correct, it's possible that it is for a "display" of some sort and not meant to be worn. That could allow for the contoured center ridge to be made from something not compressible (a line of hot glue, heavy monofilament line, etc.) that was laid down on top of the foam. Another possibility is the foam was carved or molded before being sewn over. The mind spins.

Interesting. However, I think it's more convenient to use another hard layer of 3D foam, because how would it be cut then on the counter? I will try with foam for the sake of interest and let you know. ;-)

Thanks

Please let us all know what you learn, what works, what doesn't.

It should be something more hard than the foam.
