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

I have printed this alien object using 0.15mm density and a 10% infill. It requires no support. I used a 0.4mm nozzle and it's temperature was 210 degrees Celcius. My heated bed was 60 degrees Celcius. Don't worry to use your own configuration, for example a 0.2mm layer height will do just fine and, speeds up things.

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.

If you would like to know how i design a 2D picture (google) into a 3D model. Use this link:
