EDIT: The baloon thread does not answer the question, as there it is not an answer re how to engrave with subd. One answer is a rendered solution the other answer doesnt engrave text on a subd model.
I think I have found something thats impossible to do in blender. I want to engrave a puck shape, where the engraving length is about 1/3 of the circumference of the puck. Now here is the tricky part: The model has to be a geometry light SUBD model (i.e. the subdivision modifier isnt applied yet). This has to be done without distorting the curvture or smoothness of the surface of the puck.
On a flat surface it would be easy. On a curved surface it seems impossible, as you need edge loops around the edges of the lettering, to sharpen them up, but that distorts the surface of the puck.
