Take a look at these swatches for 3D materials. original source You will notice that the more defined the highlights are the more metallic the sphere looks. The third one on the top would ...

Here is a verey simple aproach. But we need to consider some things first. a) The images you are posting are probably are renders. (Later in the coments is demostrated not to be the case) b) You need to start from a good image from the beginning, which in my opinion must have some characteristics similar to the ones you want in the final image. Highlights ...

I'm afraid I don't know the steps in Illustrator, but I've done this in InkScape before, which generates an SVG file which you might be able to import into Illustrator and dissect it to see the parts. (Here's the SVG file). What I can show here is the parts that you can create it from: 1) A grey disc background 2) A series of concentric rings at about 15% ...

It'll take some tweaking to get the result you want, but you can achieve something similar using the Crosshatch filter: Step 1: Start a new document with a layer filled the color of your choice Step 2: Create a new layer, fill it with black, add noise with Filter -> Noise -> Add Noise... Step 3: Add a Cross Hatch filter to the noise: Filter -> Brush ...

Albrecht Durer was a masterful engraver, but the only way he was going to achieve 40 lines per millimetre was by accident. He was working at a time before (just before, but before nonetheless) the Venetian glassmakers' trade secret was leaked and they lost monopoly control of their new cristallo (which was less than 50 years old when St. Eustace was created)....

I have no idea why you would ever bother trying to do this in Illustrator. Surely you aren't supplying vector product mockups to clients. So I assume all you need is a jpg, png, or pdf of the mockup. Photoshop makes this very easy.... Illustrator doesn't. You, of course, want the vector (Illustrator) logo, but you can utilize that in Photoshop directly. The ...

I would suggest that with this line drawing you shouldn't try to give it any kind of realistic metallic look. Line drawing and realistic textures -- especially a 3D-ish embossing effect -- just don't belong together. Aim instead for an illustration look: flat colors roughly in the yellow/yellow-orange range. Brush in shadows with a soft-edge brush (make a ...

The cheapest is to print in a self adhesive paper. You can either buy a sheet on a copy center, or print the design there, and just cutting it. Obviously you will not see any metalic finish on the image. There are some other materials, like adhesive vinyl and there is one transparent called mylar, that is used for stickers but I am not sure if it can be ...

I hate to say this but you will need to at least mention the printing process that will be used. For short runs, sometimes it can be printed in CMYK and for long runs it's another process similar to screen printing. In the first case, you can refer to this question. The kind of black you'll choose will depend a lot on what's around it and the size of the ...

I found the answer here - Import AutoCad data into Sketch. It uses the ACAD button to import a DXF file or similar into a sketch. I also found this video that covers it in depth. Autodesk Inventor Import

As an engraving (and etching) is analog, there is no 'resolution' to speak of--at least not in the way we think of resolution today (amount of data in an image). In the context of 'how much detail can they fit into the etching' that would have depended on a few things, namely: the quality of the paper, the material being engraved, and the tools and skills ...

It may in fact be "loading" but you have a very large image and perhaps you haven't waited long enough for it to be processed. SVG is a plain text format, so if you open it with a text editor, you will see that the SVG file has a few (2-3) geometry definitions (note that I am completely unfamiliar with the syntax), and then there is an embedded PNG image ...
