I would recommend using kisslicer for slicing this. I gave up on Slic3r since it kept crashing on anything halfway big. Kisslicer sliced this in 6 minutes (the 200+mb version) on my 5 year old walmart special laptop in .1mm layers.

Well there is a remix of this one that is easier on the slicing. The new lithophanes I make are smaller in size because I reduce the triangles after processing. This was the first one so I didn't know other slicers couldn't handle the size..

Haha I made a go of it. Couldn't get passed slicing. Crashed slic3r. Too bad, looks like fun. :D

Instructions

When printed in FDM it's best to print on a side (upright) to benefit from the layer resolution, also PLA is better because of less warping. The one in the picture was printed upright in white PLA (0.15 mm layers) on a PP3DP Up! Plus. It's best to use opaque material like white or yellow, ABS is possible but will warp more because of the thin structure.

-->If people have a request for another lithophane (of any picture) just put it in the comments.

this is awesome. You can actually print this thing vertically? Seems like it would just fall over.

Well on the Up printer the table moves from front to back. To be safe I place the model upright in this direction so the model doesn't swing around as much.

Well this one is probably too large, I never have trouble with Up! software slicing models (it's really fast). Other lithophanes I try to downsize a little for people without an Up printer ;-)

The software is ''custom built'' by someone I know.

Photo vcarve and aspire by any chance? I have a joes 4x4 hybrid.
Hey Im having troubles getting it to slice in slicer. I'm a noob with 3d. Any tips for slicing this?

Could do it in blender just as well: http://wiki.blender.org/index....

It was made in custom CNC software, CNC milling often uses pictures or patterns to import for milling but it's also nice for 3d printing.
