Description

This is a coaster with the original DC comics logo. Use it to put down your favourite drink. Or to use the last 20 gram of your filament at the end of your spool. Back in the days i have been reading some comics now and then. Both DC and Marvel. So stay around for my Marvel coaster if this is a thing for you.  

This is a standard size coaster (100 by 100 by 5 mm), to fit in my coasterholder:

DC Comics, Inc. is an American comic book publisher. It is the publishing unit of DC Entertainment,[2][3] a subsidiary of Warner Bros. DC Comics is one of the largest and oldest American comic book companies, and produces material featuring numerous culturally iconic heroic characters including: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Nightwing, Green Arrow, and Aquaman.

Most of their material takes place in the fictional DC Universe, which also features teams such as the Justice League, the Justice Society of America, the Suicide Squad, and the Teen Titans, and well-known villains such as The Joker, Lex Luthor, Catwoman, Darkseid, Sinestro, Brainiac, Black Adam, Ra's al Ghul and Deathstroke. The company has also published non-DC Universe-related material, including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and many titles under their alternative imprint Vertigo.

The initials "DC" came from the company's popular series Detective Comics, which featured Batman's debut and subsequently became part of the company's name.[4] Originally in Manhattan at 432 Fourth Avenue, the DC Comics offices have been located at 480 and later 575 Lexington Avenue; 909 Third Avenue; 75 Rockefeller Plaza; 666 Fifth Avenue; and 1325 Avenue of the Americas. DC had its headquarters at 1700 Broadway, Midtown Manhattan, New York City, but it was announced in October 2013 that DC Entertainment would relocate its headquarters from New York to Burbank, California in April 2015.[5]

Random House distributes DC Comics' books to the bookstore market,[6] while Diamond Comic Distributors supplies the comics shop specialty market.[5][7] DC Comics and its longtime major competitor Marvel Comics (acquired in 2009 by The Walt Disney Company, WarnerMedia's main competitor) together shared approximately 70% of the American comic book market in 2017.[8]

I printed this object in Ultimaker white PLA. At 0.15mm layerheight and 10% infill (Gyroide pattern). I used a 0.4mm nozzle and heated bed.

Design process

I picked a logo from my browser and have put it in svg format in inktscape. Opened the svg file in blender and made it a 3D object. In meshmixer i have repaired the file; and erased some aspects. In meshmixer i have also added a coaster. Than i have merged the coaster with the picture after scaling the picture. Saved it as a STL file and sliced it for printing. Cause the model has still some issues even after repairing it in meshmixer; i have decided to export it into Netfabb Online Service. This is an app i discovered recently after using MakePrintable. Cause MakePrintable in my opion only gives us 3 procedures of fixing an STL file and, with Netfabb Online Service the frequency of STL fix procedures is unlimited, my choice was clear. It worked well for me and i could slice the model without any problems.

Best,
