Christmas star

A customer recently sent me a photo of a star he printed for their Christmas tree.

Santa should have no trouble finding his way to this tree!

Printed with Crysta-Line Topaz on a Solidoodle 2 printer.

The files for this can be found at

The same customer also sent me a logo he printed. Its a beaker with blue "liquid".

Thought I might try something a little less "family" orientated.

You can download and print this yourself, although be warned, its a ~100mb file, so could take some slicing....

This was done at .15mm on an UP! (currently on special at $1499)

Its Here! Photo to Mesh V3

The new version of Photo to Mesh V3 is now here! What's so exciting you ask ? Well cylindrical lithophanes of course! Plus a host of other great new features.

Here are just a few examples of what I have printed over the last few days. All printed on an UP! printer at .15mm layer height.

This first one has 3 photos printed on the outside. Done by stitching 3 photos together then importing it as one new photo.

Lucky enough we just had our first baby boy just a few weeks ago, so I have the perfect subject.

A group shot.

Below is a print I made without any smoothing. I had falsely thought the printer wasn't capable of resolving the full detail, but I was stunned at just how good it could look. I now have to go back and print my earlier ones as they now look blurry in comparison.

Be one of the first to own a copy. You can get it HERE

Thanks Owen Ransen for all your hard work developing this great piece of software.
