A short-and-sweet post for a short-and-sweet design.
Last week I was watching a Youtube video about XYZ Workshop, well known for their 3D printed In Bloom Dress which was printed in 191 separate pieces on desktop machines (which you can actually download and make yourself if you have the time!) In the video I noticed they had their logo on the desk, and for whatever reason, I decided I wanted to 3D print my own similar design.
Having already developed a logo in Adobe Illustrator, it was a relatively simple process of exporting a DXF file, bringing it into Solidworks, and “smooshing” (I don’t know if that’s the technical term!) the letters together so that it would print as a single object. A few different extrusion depths and an angled cut on the back, and you have a neat little logo design to smarten up your workspace. This one was printed on an UP Plus 2 in a couple of hours, the detail is great and no support material needed.
