I made a lithophane of a rose and in Sketchup I put four of them together to form a lithophane lamp. I put in an E14 fitting and a plug. The red one in the picture is really bright (maybe a little too bright for the camera) and the black one probably won't allow light to pass through so I think white is the best to print.

I printed the original file on our Inspire D290 and had no problems although there are some errors in the STL model. So I tried to fix it and reduced the triangles a bit, this is the file with ''Fix'' at the end.

Wow, way clever! Awesome, dude.

I used a 15 W small light bulb and 220V (small E14 fitting). Don't have to use LED here because I don't think on normal scale the lamp will get too hot. I guess a tealight would work but I would only use LED lights.

How did you get the lithopane file into sketchup?

great idea will try one
with family pics

nice work!! how thick is the bit the light passes through??

Thanks, it was a lot of work.. I'm relatively new to Sketchup.

The base is 1 mm, the rose plus base about 3 mm.

Ok, thanks, my new UP printer turns up in a day or two...can't wait to get into this stuff!!

Congratulations, it's a wonderful 3D printer. This model is too big as it is, but I've printed it on my Up by scaling down untill it fitted (about 75 %). And because of the height of this model I recommend to print the calibration model of the Up first, but you''ll get to that when it's needed.
