I made a coaster

Hi there!

My friends and family laughed at me for getting a 3D printer since they see it more as a gimmick than something useful. Glad to announce I have (not) proved them wrong, but maybe I will gain some support in this venue for this creation at least:

It's a 3 color print coaster with the F5 logo. If I get the blessing of F5 I can share the blueprint. πŸ™‚

Kind regards,
Patrik

I shared this internally, and we love this! Could you do it with a red circle and white f5 to be closer to our official logo

My printed is "color blind". What I mean is that the colors of the model itself does not matter for the printing session. The printer prints layer by layer and you change colors in the middle of a print by pausing it and changing material.

What I'm saying, is that the blueprint itself won't change, just the order of changing material ("filament") when printing.

I know it's inverted but it made more sense since white is a bit more prone to stains. πŸ™‚ I'll make another one tomorrow for demo purposes.

Kind regards,
Patrik

That's so neat! Feel free to share the file here, or create a new post that we could put over in the CrowdSRC forum. πŸ˜„

This is very cool! When I first saw it I thought it was a delicious looking cookie. πŸ˜› 

Who knows, I have not tasted it yet!

Is there a link to your blueprint, @Patrik_Jonsson?

That's awesome! Did you use Blender? Or Fusion 360?

Used fusion 360 together with this plugin:

Made it really easy to convert the logo. πŸ™‚

Very nice work. It's been on the to-do list to learn a bit of Blender, or perhaps Fusion 360. So that I can print off a Jimmy Packets πŸ˜

Only used Fusion 360 but that one was surprisingly easy to learn. There's a bunch of training videos for free on YouTube.

We named this fella Jimmy Packets πŸ˜
