    Gary, it seems crisper.

    The transitions between shapes is much smoother and more continuous.

    @ Gary: unfortunately I can't see your stereogram. I had an accident when I was young and as a result my right eye is approx. 50% weaker.
    @ all: I also learned something new that I knew from my Illustrator days but never used in Xara. Thank you.

    That's a great stereogram. I actually found it quite difficult to get started and then even further looking before the real depth appeared.

    Just for fun (on my part mainly) I've made a quick crib sheet to using art brushes to create graduations along a line/path.

    Thanks for all the info and ideas on using the Art Brush. Tried out some concepts, one of which is to use individual lines to form a shape (without actually creating the shape).

    Created a brush and used it to form a right angled line (bevel joint, butt end), scale proportionately, clone 3 times and rotate objects to form an 8-sided polygon; add a matching background and a centre piece.

    There is a lot more for me to discover, but what a powerful tool! The SVG could of course of be animated with the four quadrants and centre piece

    FWIW/ BTW - it took some time to solve the original Bluetooth puzzle because the vertical bar is a flat fill (exactly the same colour top and bottom). Still not sure how single stroke achieves that unless the brush is exactly the same length and has the middle part a constant colour.

    Gary - I originally did the depth image with a flat shape for the center bar then a series of blended lines. But I think there should be a way to replicate this using the two additional shapes and then making the center shape match the color at the top and the bottom.
