Nice project.
But I have a problem with this.
I am using cura 3.3 and it adds a last layer that covers everything. I must be doing something wrong but I cannot find it.
Can anybody give a clue about this?

You can use Cura and make the whole thing in minutes.

I finally got around to making my own lithophane by following these great instructions. The only change I would recommend is to use Slic3r instead of skeinforge - it works in minutes instead of hours.

this is really cool.

the funny thing about g-code is that it is basically a 'voxel' sort of representation, go to x,y,z, spit out plastic, repeat. and your original image is also in pixels, heightmapped to sorta of voxels.

the whole STL step is a pointless waste in so many ways, it will just take a few years for the
software tools to catch up to what people like you are doing with the technology.
