Nomad: Meshcam Lithophane

Anyone who has a Nomad can do this. The version of MeshCam that comes with the Nomad will create lithophanes from digital photograph files. I didn’t do anything to adjust this color .JPG photo and I think it came out pretty well. I just used the Carbide3D tool settings for Polycarbonate in MeshCam. Roughed with a 1/8" ball. Finished with a 1/16" ball.

I think you’ll like the results!

For more detail, consider finishing with a 3/64" end mill.
