Change the values in the forms above to change your night light lithophane design! When you change values, the image under "your design" will change to show you how the new night light lithophane looks. Changing lithophane resolution does not change the geometry of your design, but does change the quality of the image that is generated. The lithophane resolution value determines the distance between unique thickness values, so a value of 0.3 would mean that there are 0.3mm between features on your lithophane image. Correct Slot Width and Adapter Thickness are necessary to ensure that your night light lithophane is compatible with your night light. The Slot Width determines the width of lithophane's slot that is meant to slide into your night light. The Slot Depth determines how deep the slot goes into the lithophane adapter. The Adapter Thickness needs to make the slot fit snugly onto the night light. I have made the default dimensions compatible with the night light that is available here
The Light -> Lithophane distance determines the distance between the center of the light and the front of the lithophane surface. The Radius of Curvature / Flatness determines the radius of curvature of the lithophane surface. A higher number causes the lithophane surface to be flatter, so this parameter is also like a flatness parameter. The Lithophane Height is the main sizing metric for the night light lithophane, and it corresponds to the height of the night light from top to bottom. The Night Light Width is the distance from the right-most tip of the night light lithophane and the left-most tip of the night light lithophane. This parameter can be adjusted if you crop your image, but will be shown and unchangeable if you do not. I hope you enjoy this tool. If you have any questions or suggestions, please ask the Lithophane Maker User's group on Facebook, and if you don't get an answer there then email me at [email protected]. Enjoy!
