Hawk hieroglyph by noordvyk Apr 22, 2013

Description

This is a simple tile that contains an ancient Egyptian hawk hieroglyph sculpted into it. Two sizes are included.

Created from standard Unicode character rendering.

This is a bit of an experiment. Hopefully this will be part of a larger project in the future.

In the interest of simplicity for the test, I just screen grabbed an raster from a zoomed in PDF guide of the Unicode standard rather than muck around with loading a font to get a PNG file. I did the extrusion using img2STL.app (http://joelbelouet.com/image2stl/) mostly just to see how it works. Choose the invert option to get an version that was engraved.
what was the method of extrusion?
was this a true type font?
