Step 1: Upload the image to a computer, digitize and optimize the image to reproduce it.
Step 2: Divide the color tones into 256 shades of gray
Step 3: Generate a processing file based on certain gray values. The file contains print commands for the 3D plotter software.
The print commands tell the 3D plotter how to print the photo on the surface. The commands include a variety of fine grooves that vary in texture from fine to coarse to create different shades of gray, first identified from individual color tones.
Step 4: Apply a water-soluble paste to the platform to form a facade pattern according to a given file.
