Digital reliefs mimic the style of their real life counterparts, and hence offer an elegant depiction of a 3D shape. Despite an increasing amount of research on digital relief generation in computer graphics, little has been reported on the generation of abstract sculpture forms using pure engraved lines. In this paper, we present a method to create a relief-like sculpture using lines extracted from 3D Objects. Our relief generation process is different from other previous works: our method uses lines to present the geometric shape while others rely on the smooth surface to convey the shape information. Such a relief-like art piece can be easily machined since only the lines need to be carved.
