A dear friend's cat died, so naturally i needed a custom lithophane enclosure..


Option A - LED Light Setup
Option B - Tea Light Setup

The lids can be stacked under the base for storage when not in use.

-- Alternate Base Added, with Risers for Candles of different sizes

-- Base Mating Joint Added, to Allow for Bases to Stack

Materials and methods

I use to generate the lithophanes, 120mm square, 3mm thick. I print them flat, at 0.05mm Layer Thickness.

Please use a high temperature material no matter what Lighting you intend to use. I used ABS/PC to print mine.

Glue may be required to get your panels to stay in place. Setting a 3mm border can eliminate the need for glue on all but the optional LED lithophane panel, which will still require glue to stay in place (0.15mm clearance on all panel edges), but will still also benefit from a border.
