I have a piece I designed and I embossed its name in the base (http://shpws.me/qLz6). As I've read the material rules, any curve needs to have a 2mm bend radius and embossing needs to be a minimum of 2mm tall. That basically implies that if I do any text 2mm tall it'll be a round bump right? As of right now my embossed text is 1.75mm tall and has some very hard edges (they are setting off the thin walls autocheck for some reason). Has anyone done embossing in ceramics? The forums seem empty when I search!

2mm is good for corners. It obviously wouldn't work to radius a 3mm thick wall with 2mm. You do need to break the edges to help the glaze adhere. Maybe .5mm?
