    Default Is CNC lithophane carving going out of style?

    Hi All,
    I carve lithophanes with a CNC machine but I've been seeing makers out there showing their lithophanes created with 3-D printing. I personally don't think they are as good. It seems scale is an issue and they don't light up quite right. I have a light panel I use for lighting lithophanes and they don't work quite right with those 3-D printed types. Something about the material being too translucent.
    Any lithophane artists out there?

    I am still creating them. Mostly 8x10s (6x8 carved) but I have made a few larger ones and some smaller ones including nightlights.

    This one is 20x30 (17x27 carved).

    Corian (.32") for 8x12 or smaller and other solid surface (.477") for anything larger.

    I light them with strip LEDs.
