I was wanting to create an image of text embedded in a metal block. Is there any way to use the 3D tools in Photoshop CS6 to create this kind of effect ? I've only been able to extrude text 'up' ( if you know what I mean ! ) rather than down into a negative space. Any help gratefully appreciated !
I wouldn't use the 3D tools to do this. I'd use the Bevel emboss layer style on the text layer, with Direction set to Down, and set the layer's fill to zero.
Thanks Trevor. I'll give that a try !
