File size limit is 5MB, which is referring to 5MB in STL binary format.
Radially cut a 3D object.
Represent a photo by laser cut or 3D printed pillars.
Convert a grayscale image to a halftone line image. Base line intensity, line width, gap between lines, and line angle can be adjusted.
Convert a grayscale image to a halftone image for laser engraving.
Generate 3D printable cookie cutter from a black and white picture.
Radial center adjustment
Adjust the radial center of the Radial method.
Lithophane 7th release
A new shape ,spiral, enables the print of very large lithohphane. After printing, the spiral lithophane can be put in hot water and be reshaped to a long, flat lithophane.
Apply wave propagation to a mesh to create interesting visual effects and to generate wavy surface deformation to the mesh.
Stretch to whole surface
Stretch a photo to cover the whole surface of a cylinder, cone, and vase lithophane.
Split a model by a cutting region instead of a basic cutting plane.
Add edge support to flat and arc lithophane to reduce the out-of-plane movement during 3D printing. A tall flat lithophane is particularly sensitive to nozzle movement. With the edge support, a flat lithophane is more stable during printing and better results can be obtained.
Lithophane 6th release
An adjustable vase-like shape is added. Through control points, the shape can take various different forms.
Mesh -> LuBan, Method Relief. An option is added to generate double-sided relief.
Flexible grid cut
Adjust each cutting plane under “Mesh -> Split”, Method Grid cut.
Turn a 3D mesh into a relief that can be fabricated by 3D printing, CNC milling, and laser engraving.
Function under “Mesh -> LuBan”, Method Relief.
Get the depth map of a 3D mesh using “Mesh -> Depth map”.
Turn a 3D mesh into a set of 2D contours, which can be laser engraved on transparent sheets, giving a 3D perspective effect.
Lithophane 5th release
Cone shape lithophane
Lithophane 4th release
Lithophane on the interior surface.
Lithophane 3rd release
Lamp color and intensity, filament color, one body vs. assembly.
Turn a 3D mesh into a 3D wireframe.
“Mesh -> LuBan”, Method Wireframe.
Lithophane 2nd release
Lithophane 1st release
Turn any 2D photo into a 3D printed photo with a frame.
“File -> Create -> Lithophane”
Show multiple objects in a window in an exploded view.
“Object -> Explode” and “Object -> Restore”.
Staggered cut pattern
An option of a staggered cut pattern is added to “Mesh -> Split”, Method Grid cut.
Bitmap to vector conversion
Convert a bitmap to a vector image for the ease of laser cutting. “Tool -> Convert -> Bitmap (binary image) -> Vector”
“Tool -> Convert -> Bitmap (natural image) -> Vector”
D-shape plug and dowel
D-shape plug and dowel allows the orientation of two parts to be uniquely determined.
This option is available under “Mesh -> LuBan”, Method Module and “Mesh -> Split”.
Turn a 3D mesh into a 2D wireframe that can laser cut and engraved.
The function is under “Mesh -> LuBan”, Method Wireframe.
Grid cut split an object into equal-sized blocks.
The function is under “Mesh -> Split”, Method Grid cut.
Printer bed shape
Support to a circular printer bed is added to
“Mesh -> LuBan”, Method Module.
Apply a curved cut to an object.
1. “Mesh -> LuBan”, Method Module.
2. “Mesh -> Split”.
