UPDATE: I'm putting this update at the top because all entries so far have made the same mistake. I am not looking for a simple extrusion of the design. The intent of this contest is not to simply mechanically extrude the 2D design. I expect you to use your artistic and modeling skills to re-interpret the design into the 3D space. Consider the "bones" part of the design. Those represent baby rattles. I would expect that a baby rattle would have a cylindrical profile, in the middle and round (spherical) profiles on the ends. Consider the skull. Skulls have shape (z-dimension). They aren't just flat. Etc, etc, etc.
I need to have this 2D design converted to 3D with the intent of 3D printing the design and then subsequently using that print as a casting mold.
I am including photos of an example of the type of part I intend to end up with. What I want is something of a hybrid between a true 3D model and a relief model. For example, the "crossbones" of the skull and bones design are meant to look like a baby toy. In 3D space, the center of each element on the ends would be a sphere, so I want them to be spheres in the model, but I also understand that they will have to be "flattened" in order to work in this context.
I have included a couple of basic diagrams indicating the size of this piece. One thing to note is that the overall height is listed as 0.75", but that is BEFORE any design elements are added. The maximum height of the design elements is 0.25"...meaning that can extend a maximum of 0.25" above the curved shape.
Elements can either have a positive offset to the curve (ie, rise above it) or a negative offset (ie, be set below the level of the curve).
The back side of the design should just be flat.
I'm not sure how to describe all this stuff, so if you have questions, by all means feel free to ask!
Final delivery needs to be something I can load into Blender. I would prefer a native Blender file, but if you have something else that will work, that's fine too.
UPDATE : I added the original Adobe Illustrator file of the design, in case anyone finds that helpful. I also exported it from Illustrator into an SVG file and uploaded that.
UPDATE: Received an initial submission that lead me to think I may need to be more clear on this. I am looking for much more than simply taking the design and extruding it. I want to see the design truly modeled in 3D, and then applied to the disk.
