Photoshop, Blender, Meshmixer, S3D to add the frame.
Dimensions: 165mm x 115mm x 3.7mm (6.5mm with frame).
Thingiverse does not allow zip or rar file uploads, and as this is a 460MB stl I've had to compress it and add a ".cdr" extension to get around the limitations.
Download the file, remove the ".cdr" extension and you'll have a zip file to uncompress.
Note: This is a large and detailed stl file and may put some systems/slicers under pressure. It slices best in Cura 3.6+ or S3D.
A note on slicing in Simplify3D:
It’s easiest to slice the lithophane in Cura(or Slic3rPE) as there’s an extra step in Simplify3D due to the way the lithophanes are created(this by design to allow additional editing/printing options for more advanced users).
If you want to use Simplify3D you just need to do the following:
- Load the lithophane STL into S3D as normal.
- Click Mesh–Separate Connect Surfaces
- Slice as normal
The added bonus of doing this is you can re-crop the image into the frame if you wish, or easily resize or remove the frame altogether.
If you don’t do the above in S3D there may be a tiny gap between the frame and the lithophane when you actually slice the model.
