Project EIGER makes your design process as easy as pie.
Do you want to roll up your sleeves and get started? The only thing you have to do is to generate a color file and an elevation file. The elevation file must contain the height data of the print in grey layers (100% black is your maximum height, whereas 0% black is no height). Just utilize the software tools you already love to use, such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator and follow the steps below. Your design will be created in a jiffy.
Start by using your trusted tool.
Use Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator to create the two necessary files: a color file and an elevation file. Adobe Photoshop can be used to create the files manually. For Adobe Illustrator you can get a little help of the Elevation Assistant plug-in that is currently free available for Adobe Illustrator versions CS6 and CC.
Do you want a little help or do you just want to make designing easier?
Use the Elevation Assistant plug-in to add height.
Use the Elevation Assistant plug-in to add elevation to your vector and raster images. Think in black and white tot add height and add patterns, textures and beveled edges to your designs.
Preview and test your elevated designs.
Use the Project EIGER viewer in the Elevation Assistant plug-in to preview how your design will turn out when printed. Or – if you are not sure how your print will look and feel like – you can always contact us for a test slice of your own design before ordering the whole print.
