A lithophane is defined as an etched or molded artwork in a thin translucent material that can only be seen clearly when lit from the back. They have been around for a thousand years dating back to ancient China. Our 3D Printing Application Engineer, Jeremy Marvin, added a modern touch to this ancient art form. He printed his daughter Gabrielle “Gabby” on a Fortus 400 using ASA plastics. See the amazing results below.
