Thanks so much for this easy to customize lithophane. I've been playing with it for several days now. Just sent you a thanks from Paypal. Pat

i cant understand the full instructions. I have an image in the GIMP, then i export with .dat extension. Now i have the .scad file and the .dat file. How do i merge those? how do i put the .dat on the openscad? Thanks for the help!

What size are your panes? I was looking on both this page and the one for your box.......

Where can I find the lithopane box in your photo?

That dimensions of each Lithophane. And what resolution you mean millimeters thick.

customize error, why?

Looks like your image size is a problem. Might be something thingiverse changed recently, since it's been working fine until now. If it's persistently failing, try using the 'Full' instructions (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:229961/#instructions).

Beware of making them too big, the surface() has performance/memory issues.
