Default American 3D Printing Cruiser Parts

Here's an emblem I made for C-Dan's BJ74. I think he's going to have me make some quantity of them for him to sell on Mud. He is planning on painting the red on himself. Personally, I'd be inclined to make the letters separate, print them in red and glue them on.

Awesome Jeff!

Do you recall the picture of the 60 with the home made "prius-toric" emblem? How much to make a batch of those?

No I don't, but I charge $40/hr design time (start-up cheap - try getting a shop to work on your rig for that).

Dan's emblems will cost anywhere from $10-$15 each, depending on his choice of materials and build details. Builds go for $20/hr (1/2 off that for Rising Sun members).

Even though he was planning on painting the lettering red, I went ahead and split the letters out from the base of the 3D model and printed them separately with red PLA just to see what it would look like. Once I had assembled it I could see that the radii on the lower left corner of the "T", the right two corners of the"B" and all 4 corners of the "O" were too sharp, so I increased their radii from 2mm to 4mm. It looks a lot more true to the original now.

looking good!

can you print in material that can be burned out in a burnout oven?

I have done it with the photocurable polymers (for Objet and stuff) but was wondering if you had stuff that was specifically for burning out in an oven (low ash).
