My wife and her friends went on a trip and took a group photo. She asked if there was anything I could do with it so I instantly mentioned a lithophane. She asked if there was any way to mount a light behind it because they will sit at office desks and most don't have window light.

I made this model to make it easy to mount and back light a lithophane. It's also incredibly easy to change out the light if needed because it just sits in it's little pocket.

The lights I used for this were "Commercial Electric" LED soft white puck lights that I picked up from Home Depot (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Commercial-Electric-2-99-in-LED-Silver-Battery-Operated-Puck-Light-3-Pack-1001217766/205703255). It worked perfectly and they were all happy.

It may not be the most elegant stand but it serves it's purpose and worked great. I just wish I had taken a picture of it completed before she took them all to work.

I modified the model i'm uploading to add the name of the place they went and the year on the front of the base. There's plenty of blank area to make any remixes you might want.

I think if I print this again, I may go down to .175mm to clean up some weird step issues I had on the slopes. Otherwise, it was a super easy print that worked perfectly.

Once printed, you can place the puck light in the holster at the back so it's angled toward the lithophane. There is a small block to stop it from sliding down.
