This frame can held 4 lithophanes. The frame should be hung in front of a window. There is a special corner part with an eyelet to hang it up.
To build a frame together you will need the following parts:
- 2x corner top
- 2x corner
- 2x top-bottom
- 2x right-left (my best result was printing with tree support)
- 1x middle (my best result was printing with tree support)
- 2x middle_half (my best result was printing with tree support)
It is important to create the lothophanes as described below so they will fit into the frame. I've also uploaded a sample picture with the according sample lithophane.
The source for the litophanes are pictures with an aspect ratio of 4:3. The resolution is (1024n)x(768n), e.g. 1024x768, 2048x1536, 3072x2304, 4094x3072, …
XNView is a very good tool to resize pictures.
With the help of the online tool "Image to Lithophane" (http://3dp.rocks) the stl files for the lithophanes can be created.
The following settings should be used so the lithophanes will fit into the picture frame:
Maximum Size (MM): 80
Thickness (MM): 3
Border (MM): 3
Thinnest Layer (MM): 0.8
Vectors Per Pixel: 4
Base/Stand Depth: 0
Positive Image (Switch to the left side)
For all other settings the default should be used.
