3D model description

Snap Badges! The front and the back snap together with fabric in between to make a fun, eye-catching badge. They work on shirts, skirts, ribbons, lanyards, and more as long as the fabric is not too thick. Or print only the tops and make them into magnets. Smiles guaranteed!

Great for party favors, stocking stuffers, promoting school spirit, advertising, or a special event.

Some stars were printed with UV color changing filament from white to blue which created a three-color effect for our family during the day on the 4th of July. That night we wore the others the ones with glow in the dark filament.

I included model files for the back, the top, and the image for the top. See recommendations in the 3D Printing Settings. These may be printed with single or multiple extrusion.

Exclusively on Cults!

Directions: Not recommended for delicate fabrics or putting over a decal on a shirt. The backing goes behind the fabric (inside a shirt, for example) and the top part snaps into the back gripping the fabric between the pieces. To remove, grip the edges of the top piece with the image and place your thumbs inside the circle of the backing. Press with your thumbs to pop off the top while pulling back on the edges of the backing at the same time. It usually works best if all of the force is focused toward one edge of the badge. If one direction seems tough, shift slightly toward a different edge of the badge.

For magnets, adhesive 20 mm round, 2mm thick work well and you don’t need to print the backs.

No remixes or derivatives. I would consider making custom designs such as for a school, a team, a company, or an event. Please use the On Demand tab on the Cults web site for requests.

Inspired by pop badges from Legoland California.

3D printing settings

Back: 51 x 51 x 7 mm approximately
Top: 47 x 47 x 5 mm approximately
Star: 5 mm thick

The Back and the Top may be printed with the same settings. I used 0.2 mm layer height, 20% infill, 3 top layers, 3 bottom layers, 2 outline/perimeter shells. No raft. The back does not need supports. I was able to print the top with and without supports for the indentation in the middle. I prefer the smoother surface printed with short supports.

Do not print the top inside the back. They print well in the same print job but are separate.
