Can you make something like this for the reverse, that is convert STL or other 3D model format to grey scale height map image? I have a CNC router that works off of grey scale height maps as the input format and this would be an indispensable tool.
Hello, I am a graduate student in San Diego State University, Computer Science Dept. and working on my thesis project which involves 3D print. I found this script (heightmap2stl.jar) and trying to use it. I want to use this script in my Android app, so wanted to know if this is possible. Also wanted to check if I can get the source code of this jar file.
This would be really helpful to proceed for my thesis work. Hope to hear from you soon!

After you finished step 10 convert the image with heightmap2stl.
java -jar heightmap2stl.jar 'path to imagefile' 'height of model' 'height of base'
'path': Path to the heightmap (png, jpegs,... )
'height of model': Z scale of the model. Height of the max elevation.
'height of base': Height of the base, the model stands on.

Attached is a low resolution model of the above provided heightmap.
