I'm trying to design a DIP chip with my name on it. I think the chip itself is pretty good, the texture is there, the text is nicely grainy, and the little circle is nicely depressed. However, I'm having a much harder time with the metal pins coming out of the chip. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to improve this?

Thank you for any advice!
