3D Printing the D.Buzz Logo

in STEMGeeks4 days ago (edited)

I've finally 3D printed the @dbuzz logo and posted a photo earlier today. D.buzz is a micro-blogging Dapp so I couldn't "buzz" out everything. Here is a long form post with more detail.

I made the model in Tinkercad. The @dbuzz logo was taken from hiveprojects.io. My finished model measures 101 mm x 51.33 mm with a maximum height of 8 mm.

The 3D printing of the D.Buzz logo took less than 2 hours to complete. With 20% infill the model took 6.37 meters of PLA filament to complete.

The 3D print is thin enough and light enough to be a refrigerator magnet. All that's needed is to glue a magnet to the back of the model.

The 3D model I made is available on Tinkercad and a .stl for 3D printing is available on Thingiverse. Both files are under a Creative Commons CC BY-SA 3.0 license. Sharing is caring!

Looking great man, I love the idea of making it a refrigerator magnet!

Things have been a little slow here but still productive :)

I designed some beads recently for hanging curtains, but it will take 1000 grams to make a curtain so I'm going to wait on it.
Electronics casing enclosures is something I'm thinking about, for things like Arduino and PI chips, maybe some sleek 3D printed cameras.

The design curve is challenging for me but Tinkercad definitely is user friendly for beginners.

Keep up the great work and Have a great day!

I have a unique enclosure I need to make eventually. A little bit ahead of myself there since I haven't even breadboarded the circuit design yet for the enclosure but I know exactly what it needs to look like on the exterior. It will probably end utilizing BeagleBone.

It`s cool
