First Lithograph effort

Post by MTLCHSR »

Hi, Thought i would post this photo of my first lithograph project.. Very happy with result. Havn't made a box for it yet. Took a while to do but I could have managed the 'feeds and speeds' a bit better, but as I am new to the whole Aspire software and 3D routing in general there is lots to learn. 6mm Glacier white Corian. Final pass with a 0.12 mm width standard D bit. Just watched the 'lithophane' tutorial video a couple of times and then jumped in... One thing tho. The machine bed needs to be FLAT, as in FLAT before starting. Oh also have to watch lettering too, that's supposed to be NY not YN. Traps for young players :P Image

Kinda funny about the NY being backwards.
This is how we learn right?
Great job though.
I like it.

Looks great
Just wondering, did you take the photo from the uncut side? That would explain the mirrored glasses and reversed NY :D

Looks like it turned out nice, generally lithos only need 1 pass if you are looking to save some time
