Overview...This program takes a greyscale bitmap or jpeg image and converts the color value of the pixels into depth values for a v-bit...shallow for light colors and deepr for dark colors. Downloaded zip file includes a folder with a couple of sample images to play with.
Notes...If the size of the hole pattern doesn't fit your blank, you can adjust the total size of the hole pattern by either resizing the image or changing the maximum hole size. To check the maximum depth of cut, run the part file in preview mode and the max z-depth wil be recorded. If it will cut too deep for your blank, select a bit with a larger angle or make the hole size smaller.
