This is pretty awesome.

I have a feature request: can you make it respect transparent pixels? If I have a transparent pixel in a GIF or PNG, make it a hole in the model (or outside the model if on the edge).

There are lots of non-rectangular things which can be modeled as 2D heightmaps, like medallions, sheriff's badges
, etc. This would open up a whole new set of tools for creating 3D objects: design in Photoshop or Illustrator, export as transparent PNG, and convert to STL.
