Customisable Lithophane with More by MichaelAtOz Apr 23, 2013

Description

**HEY**
**YOU**
**Please change the description to something *meaningful* when saving it.** I will **delete** this thing if everyone keeps just saves it as 'My Customized ...'

I liked the original and saw some comments about removing the hanging hole and going borderless. So here it is.
If you don't want the hole, set the two hole options to zero, ditto for the border. You can change both border sizes too.
The first STL is is Buzz Aldrin with a flag on the Moon, the second a moon crater image, both courtesy of NASA. Both with border and hanging-hole.
image-surface.dat is the Moon crater data in case anyone wants it, ditto the Buzz...dat file.

Very cool. Does it require a certain kind of filament to achieve the transparency?

Not anything special. I've only used natural ABS so far, from others 'Made' examples, particularly if you look at the Made list of the Derived From Thing, lighter colours look better.

And you called it "Lithophane". You're the man. Unless you're a woman... no, you're a man, the man.

how does one convert and image into the required .dat file?

MichaelAtOz on Apr 24, 2013 said:

First if you just want the STL you can use Customizer, click the 'Open in Customizer' button above, then load your 100x100 file.

If you want to use OpenSCAD locally you can convert your file using the tool linked to here http://customizer.makerbot.com....
Click 'online tool' load your file, Copy the data, paste into a .dat file, save, change the filename in the scad file.
