Hello,

What is the thickness of the frame base? Also, how wide is the gap? I find I'm having a bit of trouble getting it to fit on my lights.

Thank you for your time.

Are you using a different night light? I have put these on over twenty lights without issue and my buddy did a bunch as well. The slot is .665" wide and .06" thick.

Will this work for any sized lithophane? I generally create my lithiphanes on the 3dp.rocks website. What width works with this?

No, it only works with one size lithophane. Check out the video, it shows you the required settings to be used at the 3dp.rocks website. Just make sure you use the exact same setting so the origins line up properly in your slicer. Your photo will also need to be cropped square to align up properly as well.

I have watched the video three times now. Sadly, no settings given :(

I may have missed it but I don't see anything about the 3dp.rocks settings.

Sorry... Looks like I forgot to include the part about the 3dp.rocks settings... lol I have added it to the video and re-uploaded it, sorry about the inconvenience. Hope this helps!

No problem :) Thank you so much for making this.

A few questions:

1) What program did you create this with?
2) Will the source files be made available?

I use Autodesk Inventor. If you are thinking about a different size you would be better of starting of scratch because the origin for the lithophane will change and the frame needs to match. Hard to explain but it was the trick to the design, otherwise the frame is a very simple design.
