Lithophane ready PLA+ White 3D printer filament 

The magic of lithophany is born from the play of light with the translucent character of porcelain. It projects warm lighting throughout the room by illuminating its interior and highlights the engraving that decorates it, producing surprising relief effects on its surface.

Turning photos into 3D objects gives them more feeling and literally adds a new dimension. Of the various ways to do this, lithophanes are a simple way to enhance your favourite photos.

Lithophanes are essentially embossed photos generated by a 3D printer. The print results don’t show much at first but shine some light through one and you’ll be amazed by the details. The way it works is that light passes through the thin parts while being blocked by the thick parts. In this way, the differences in light bring out the details of the image. Lithophane is the best gift that would be something personalized that you would be able to 3D print.
