Preparation steps

Step#1 Generate STL files

1. Visit the Lithophane tool Lithophane Makers and upload one of your favorite JPG format photos.

  • Select the ‘Crop’ checkbox to adjust the STL width and length.
  • The recommended first layer height is 0.15mm.
  • Adjusting the size 144(W)*108(H) to fit Bambu Lab Backlight Board.
  • Modify the X Shift and Y Shift to change the spacing of both sides.
  • Use the default ‘Palette’

2. Enter your personal email address and click ‘Create .stl’ to download the generated STL zip file.

Step#2 Configure and slice

1. Unzip the folder and drag the five generated STL files into Bambu Studio. Select ‘Yes’ to load these files as a single object with multiple parts.

2. Add four colors – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and White – corresponding to filaments loaded in AMS slots.

3. Setting adjustments:

  • Choose ‘0.2mm nozzle’ (recommended);
  • Change the first layer height to 0.15mm;
  • Set the Top & Bottom Shell Layers to 3;
  • Modify infill to ‘100% Rectilinear;

4. In the ‘Objects’ panel, assign the corresponding colors based on the file names.

5. Disable “Slowing Down for Overhang”

  • Start slicing!

*Note: lithophane slicing could take longer; please be patient.

Alternative Configure and slice guide

You can download the demo 3MF file to get the above settings quickly.

3.Add another plate and import the picture you want to print.

4. Set the colors to be the same as the previous 3mf file.

5. Slice your plate and wait till it is done.

Load filaments and print

Make sure the CMYK filament placement order in AMS matches the settings order in the Studio. Otherwise, the prints’ colors may be incorrect.
