    Hi all.
    Complete noob here. Just downloaded sketchup a few days ago, and I've been playing with it. I have a specific project in mind, and I assume sketchup can do it, I just don't know how.

    I want to make a steel pendant about an inch square (25mm x 25mm x ~3mm) with a QR code on it, with the black parts being recessed about 1-1.5mm. I have the code, and I can extract either the white data or the black data, but then I can only paste it onto the 25 x 25 x 3mm object as a skin.

    Is there any way in sketchup turn that 2d image 3d without having to hand-create each cube and join them together? If not, what about Blender?

    Thanks in advance.
