Thread on 3d Printing Cody Model

<< < (6/19) > >>

Deozaan:
So actually the center of the coin won't be too visible I guess, since cody will be on it.

What about the bottom? That could have a nice/fun design for an extra treat to those who pick up the coin+Cody and take a look at the underside.

mouser:
The first openscan coin model with text seems to use this Write library: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:16193
I don't know about the others.

(the fancy one with text on the side seems to use something different -- not only that but it uses a 2bit png image as a mask for the engraved center image!).


ps. We should split this 3d printing discussion into its own thread.

The first sample coin thing does actually have text on the bottom.

Or give it some mirrored text&image so it can be used as a stamp?

ayryq:
Text on the bottom/sides is easy to design and render, less easy to print.
the write.scad library is nice because it does curved text for tops and sides of cylinders, but it has a weird format for fonts and doesn't look like it kerns correctly.
