Design Window Lithophane

Design your window lithophane with the options below. You can place the window lithophane on the a windowsill or use twine and a suction cup.

Do you want twine tunnels in the lithophane's frame?

Lithophane Resolution (mm/pixel):

Base Length (mm):

Base Width (mm):

Base Height (mm):

Ledge Angle (deg):

Maximum Thickness (mm):

Minimum Thickness (mm):

Est. Run Time (s):

Est. File Size (MB):

Note: this may take a minute!


Adjust the values in the forms above to design your window lithophane. Currently, every generated lithophane comes with holes on the top corners for string to go through.
Picture aspect ratio is for reference only! It is not used to generate your lithophane stl from a picture! It is only used to create the design tool's graphics.
The lithophane resolution is the distance between pixels in the printed lithophane, so a value of 0.3 mm/pixel means that each unique lithophane thickness is 0.3mm apart in the x and y dimensions.
The base length determines the total length of the base (including the frame) and is the main "sizing" dimension.
The base width applies to only the frame. A larger base width makes for a sturdier frame.
The base height parameter makes the frame larger in the other dimension.
The ledge angle determines what essentially becomes your overhang angle when you print the lithophane vertically.
The maximum and minimum thickness parameters set the maximum and minimum thickness of the lithophane, so these can be used to control lithophane brightness and contrast.
