3D Printing Lithophanes
Personal Interest Project
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.
