Lens & Print

It is crucial in lenticular process to understand main principles of technology, printing method, lens types. It allows you to easily adjust your project and find the best way of preparing and printing it.

One of the most important parameters is convexity of a lenticula. The more convex the lens, the wider the angle of viewing. Lens with wide viewing angle are better for motion, the narrow lens are better for 3D. Lenses for 3D are thicker than lens for animation. The lower the resolution, the thicker the lens. Thicker lenses are about 4mm (10-20 LPI), the thinnest lenses are about 0,2mm (200 LPI). It is very important to determine the distance between image and viewer. Below a short table with these dependencies.
