Goz posted some 3d greyscale height mapped images the other day and suggested a few admittingly high-end ($$$) 3d modeling software pacakges that would produce such images. I have been poking around and found the following opensource 3d graphics package.


A good tutorial on how to produce the greyscale heightmaps is here:

I was able to produce the following image using an image of a monkey included with the software.


At this point I know next-to-nothing about this type of software. But it seems like this package can produce the types of images we need and the price is right.

i am interested in carving 3d carvings. im trying to figure out how to do this by importing a picture and transferring it to 3d if this is possible.
