Two become one Lithophane.

Post by tonydude »

Lithophane I made using photo vcarve. I used a .0625 ball nose bit carving .15 deep.

Nice work. Always loved the lithophanes.
I create them quite frequently on my 3d printer.
Actually the effects are quite similar.
Thanks for sharing.

Exact same method except my 3d printer is additive in that it builds the lithophane in layers.
While the CNC is subtractive and cuts the material down in layers.
One plus with the 3d printed lithophanes is I have a ton of colors to chose from.

No I actually use simplify 3d for processing my stl files and a rider program from thingiverse for lithophanes.
I have not tried a lithophane in Vcarve as yet. Been looking at getting photo Vcarve for that reason though..
