Hello! New SolidWorks user here. Am using to create 2D drawings to cut sheets of metal with laser. We mostly do through-cuts but we've started doing more art projects that require additional methods.
I'm tasked with doing a drawing that the client would like a good portion of the surface to be etched. I've seen a lot of Q&As and tutorials about etching lines (particularly for text) but haven't been able to find anything for etching an actual image. I would think that it would make more sense to do a series of very narrow lines so that there is visible texture. So that's really a 2 part question: How would you set the lines to only scratch the surface and how would you create multiple lines inside a shape? For example, consider a yin-yang where the white is untouched and the black is represented by these etched lines.
I'll follow up but thanks in advance.
