Coaster with rose (pair)

Are you that romantic lover lover? Print this coaster for yourself or that someone special. And put some love in your hearth. The drinkcoaster has a nice classy rose print. Therefore it's also for the flower-lovers among us.

This download contains two drinkcoasters, a negative and positive one. If you print it for a drinkcoaster, i would print the negative one. Cause that one provides more stability for your glass/cup. Use these coaster to place your favourite drink. If you have printed it, don't hesitate to show of your skills and upload a picture.

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. Than i have merged the drinkcoaster with the 3Dmodel (of the logo) after scaling the model in meshmixer. In meshmixer i have made the 'positive' file. For the negative model i have use 123design to substract the file from a drink-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.

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