Backlit Spider-man 3D Printed Lithophane Time Lapse Appears From The Void – Ender 3 Pro 3D Printer

This is the first of several 3D printed Spiderman lithophanes I plan leading up to the release of Marvel’s Spiderman No Way Home in December. Time lapsing this Spiderman 3D printed lithophane was a lot harder than I initially thought. I figured I had it mastered when I 3D printed Spiderman overnight a few days ago, but I woke up to find the time lapse Marvel 3D print ruined when the sun had risen and completely overexposed the final images. In order to get a lithophane to properly time lapse the room must maintain the same darkness for the entire print or risk falling into the same trap I did.

Here is the process I used to get this Spiderman lithophane to print correctly
1) Purchase a clip on LED light with a long neck so you can position it behind the 3D printer bed to start the time lapse.
2) I used American Filament’s Classic White filament that is actually designed for printing lithophanes!
3) I boosted the exposure in in my Octolapse time lapse settings in Octoprint to 371 and upped my gain as well
4) I used the yellow light on the LED to really bring out the details in the 3D print.

How Time Lapse 3D Prints Work
After each .2 MM layer( That is barely thicker than a sheet of paper!) the 3D printer pauses, moves the extruder to the rear of the printer, takes a photo and then continues the print giving the illusion of the print appearing from thin air.
