Photo2Mesh

You can create objects to print straight away, or add it to your existing 3D models. Lithophanes A lithophane was originally hand made out of thin porcelain. An image would be carved into it, which could only be truly appreciated by having the object back lit Now with Photo2Mesh you can create your very own! Logos Take your company logo or artwork, digitize it. Bring them into Photo2Mesh and export the STL file. Fun objects Using your digital photographs you can create awesome gifts.

The example here is taking the photograph of an eye, and placing it on a spher e to give you an eyeball! You can even create polygons (squares, triangles etc) from within Photo2Mesh which can be printed straight away! Here is a fantastic example of a Lithophane cube.

Usage: slice [options] Cube10.stl Using Cube10.stl, which is a 10x10x10 cube > slice cube10.stl prints the JSON formatted result: To create a single slice at Z=5 with a tool radius 1mm and layer height of 0.1, > slice -layer=0.1 -r1 -f0 cube10.stl The response (in JSOP) is: The shape of this is a square of width 12mm with 1mm rounded corners, because it is sampled with a disc of radius 1. You cannot slice exactly on a flat area because the result is ambiguous, so slicer moves the position of Z slightly. > slice -z10 cube10.stl returns To create a silhouette, simply set the z value to below the zlo for the model and the layer thickness to greater than the height of the model.

Photofly. Gear template generator. This free online gear template generator is designed for making scale accurate paper gear templates which you can glue onto wood and then cut out with a bandsaw.

Gear template generator

I recommend printing the gears with an ink jet printer. Even cheap ink jet printers print very scale accurate but Not all laser printers are accurate. This is the new version (as of September 2015). You can still access the old Flash based version Getting the printout to scale correctly Different browsers print at different scales depending on browser type and printer configuration. Some notes about gear design and this gear template generator This template generator is intended for generating paper templates for cutting low precision gears from plywood, phenolic, or other suitable materials with a band saw.

This gear template generator generates shapes for involute spur gears. The gear tooth generation is not perfect. Rack and pinion gearing You can also generate rack and pinion gears. Any questions?
