Description

Helloooo,

This is a coaster with the original Inkscape logo. If your familiar with this program you know it is a handy tool. I use the program for making all my 2d images into 3d files. Including this Inscape logo. If you want to know how i did it use this link* for a short video and, learn how to use inkscape yourself!

Print it with a single or multiple color, with filament or resin..and show me what you guys have made of it. I would love to see this model printed in a different color or even material.

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

I have printed this model with Ultimaker white PLA. I used 0.2mm layer height and, 18% infill. I used a 0.4mm nozzle with my extruder at 210 degrees Celcius. I used a heated bed. To avoid the curling up at the bottom i used a brim. Don't hesitate to use your own configuration....no worries!

Design steps

I picked a logo from my browser and have put it in svg format in inktscape (see video*). Opened the svg file in blender and made it a 3D object. In meshmixer i have repaired the file, using the 'Inspector' button under the 'analysis' tab. In meshmixer i have also added a drinkcoaster. I made the drinkcoaster in 123D Design using simple model techniques. You can also choose to make a template of a drinkcoaster in another program. For example: tinkercad. Or download a template of my website (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3542555). The negative model was made by using 123design to substract the file from a coaster. 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 almost works very well after modelling something. Netfabb Online Service is a free STL repairing service. After this process i have previewed the model in my slicer (something i advice you to do before printing a model). The preview looked great with perfect (thick) lines; so i could print it without any problems.

Best,
