Trying all kids of 3D modeling and 3D printing in my early days with the Lulzbot TAZ4, I figured I should try printing some simple 3D text. I decided to create a desk sign for MkrClub.com as my example. This was extremely simple using Autodesk 123D Design. Using the text tool, picking a font and then sizing it, was almost the same as using Google Docs or any app which has text entry and formatting. Then a simple "extrude" command, and Bam - I was done and ready for STL export into Slic3r app.
The photo of the finished print with a bit of focus effect, and including the screen shot of the original model made this whole project worthwhile - as it became the title image to some of the MkrClub.com online presence!
