3D model description

Use my simple program to transform your photo (JPG) into STL:
- Christmas ball (bas-relief);
- tabletop photo frame (bas-relief);
- candle holder (lithophany, please use electronic candles);
- egg with internal lithophany

Please see this short video:

By downloading you get the program "Amazing STL Creator 7.exe".
Please note, you download not a printable STL but a program to generate them!

Minimum number of settings. Smart contrast, smart color to grayscale transformation, smart noise removal. Just upload your photo and you will get STL

Application is for Windows (7, 8, 10, 11). if you have MacOS or Linux, you can use the additional program WineHQ to work with this program.

More than 1400 people have already successfully used the programs of the "Amazing STL Creator" series.

Rendering time is about 2-5 seconds.
The program places resulting file Amazing.stl to the same directory. where the program is.
STL size is 12-120 MB

Please check my previous simple programs:
- Amazing STL Creator 1: Dual Text Illusion;
- Amazing STL Creator 2: Text Spinners;
- Amazing STL Creator 3: Switchable Business Cards;
- Amazing STL Creator 4: Double Sized Keychains;
- Amazing STL Creator 5: Transform a Photo into 10 Types of Decoratiive Objects;
- Amazing STL Creator 6: Cookie Cutters

I have 26 year experience in programming 3d objects. If you like this application, I plan to make another 20-25 applications for automatical individualizing the souvenirs by name/surname: business cards, text vases, paperweight, lithophany lanterns, et. al.

Here is video about bas-relief technology:

Please note, the operating system can warn you if you are opening a program from an unregistered publisher. This is a normal situation, it is difficult for an individual author to get into the register of publishers. Therefore, I guarantee with my reputation that the program is safe for your computer, and the only thing it does is write a STL file to disk with lithophany object.

Please give me feedback: what to improve in the program? I plan to collect recommendations and release an updated version of the program in a couple of weeks. If you bought the program, you can download the updated version for free. And you will receive a notification from Cults that you can download a new version of the program
