Abstract

Inspired by the traditional Chiaroscuro woodblock printing techniques of the 16th century, we have explored the use of producing relief print impressions as a means to evaluate the surface rendered with 2.5D and 3D printing technologies. This work builds from previous research by the authors into manufacturing relief plates using additive and subtractive manufacturing processes. Here we discuss the use of vector graphics in the design process and issues of maintaining contour definition of lines and shapes. For comparative analysis, we also produced a hand cut lino block, interpreted from the same design.
