Here's a wild problem:

I need to convert one of my digital photos to a .stl file - the file type used in CAD programs.

Has anyone ever done this sort of thing?

I'm doing some more of those tactile graphics - bas relief and such - and came across a Titan FDM from Stratysys. It's a machine which is used to make 3D prototypes from CAD files.

I'm guessing, but here's my logic: my photo image and the the CAD image share some common parameters in that they are both visual maps.... Isa there a way to save them in .stl format?

OR I may need to print out my .TIF or .JPEG files and load them into a CAD program as scans.

(Maybe I just solved my own problem.)
