If you have a 3D CAD file you can just convert it to an STL file. I think Rhino
and other packages might have special third party software available to create
height maps as 3D CAD models. It can also take a point field and create surfaces
that cover these. Those surfaces can then be converted to STL (after adding a
bottom plane first to close the model and make it a valid STL).

Subject: [rp-ml] Lithophane Software?

Hello everyone,

I've been trying to find software that can create lithophane STL files from 2d
images? The only thing I could find so far is a Photoshop function that
converts a grascale image into 3d height maps...

Anyone else have any suggestions from 3d image to lithophane stl?
