3D Printing Lithophanes

Personal Interest Project

Year: 2020

Purpose: Learn to 3D print a 2D photograph

This was my method for printing lithophanes

(1) Utiltized a lithophane generator to generate a lithophane mesh. The program works by using contrast in a 2D photo to create a 3D mesh.

(2) Uploaded the mesh to Fusion 360. Using the mesh to BREP (boundary representation) function, reduce function, to produce a printable model.

(3) Printed the file using Ender 3 Pro printer



This is my unique Makercoin. I generated a gear with a lithophane of my dog in the center.



This is a portrait of my father.
