Could you post the picture at picpaste, imageshack, flickr, or another image hoster?

Looks interesting. Although most models seem to be missing quite a bit, and its hard to see how much detail there is with the picture overlayed.

Seems the forum is back to its old tricks. Hopefully it gets a revamp like the UP website.

Look forward to seeing your prints.

I like it - it reminds me of a "lithophane" and would make a nice nightlight, which is what lithophanes are commonly used for. Can you tell us how you got from a 2D photo to a 3D model? What software tool(s) did you use?

Thanks,
julia

It would be fun to experiment with this as a lampshade printed with glow in the dark plastic. You might get some really interesting effects.

http://www.photo-to-3d.com/ is the program/website. But using their examples I get less than great outcomes. I'd been keen to hear what else was done.

Hi



I used this software: http://www.ransen.com/PhotoToMesh/Default.htm,
Not bad prise for the value it gives!

Here is the original picture which I used for printing. I just converted it to grayscale.

I've also experimented with printing Lithophanes and found that you get excellent results when printed edge-down - you get far better definition than printing it flat on the table....I'll post photos when I can

Here is one I did in crysta-line clear ABS. The photo doesn't do it justice. When held up to the light it has a satin sheen look.

The original.

First try.

I'm going to try again with some changes. I built small supports at the back along the edges to give it some strength. As it was printed vertical, and very thin.

Here is a flat lithophane I printed edge-ways up:

The software to make both meshes is my own and something I'm tinkering with in-between 'real' work...I like the idea of wrapping lithophanes into a tubes/vases to use as lamp shades:

Need to study that wrapping a bit more what limits you have in wrapping?
