Description

Image2stl,is a software that allows the creation of 3D object from a 2D base (jpg or png). Associating the colors to values ​​extrusion, the program detects differences in color level to translate the 2D to 3D. Thus, an image composed of a gradient from black to white gradient will create a volume.

This application has been designed by the Association Design The Future Now and developed by Joël Belouet.

 This appears to be a processing sketch - should be easy to create windows and linux versions, and I'm sure others would be more than happy to do that for you if you do choose to release the sketch itself.

PropellerScience, are you seems to be too close-minded to be an open source defender ? ... Wait some weeks and look outside, maybe santa will bring you a Windows or Linux version ! Be a good boy ! 

Sorry I meant my comment for PropellerScience. OSX got something before windows :).

Thus, an image composed of a gradient going from white to black will create a volume having the shape of a slope.
