3D model description

Here it is, a drinkcoaster with a mermaid image. You can use the last 25 gram (3.12 meter) filament at the end of your spool, to print this model if you want to finish your last filament. I will use this coaster to put down my cup of coffee or bottle of water, cause that's what i drink the most. My print-time on this model was 2 hours and 25 minutes.

This is a standard size coaster (100 by 100 by 5 mm), to fit in my coasterholder:

3D printing settings

I have printed this model in Fillamentum electric grey PLA. I have used 0.25mm layer height and 18% infill. I have used a heated bed at 55 degrees Celsius and my nozzle size is 0.4mm and was heated at 210 degrees Celsius. I have used the movement setting: 'combing not in skin' (Cura) for a smoother topsurface. Don't worry to use your own settings while this isn't a difficult model.

Design process

I picked a logo from my browser and have put it in svg format in inktscape. Opened the svg file in blender and made it a 3D object. In meshmixer i have repaired the file; and erased some aspects. In meshmixer i have also added a coaster. Than i have merged the coaster with the picture after scaling the picture. Saved it as a STL file and sliced it for printing. Cause the model has still some issues even after repairing it in meshmixer; i have decided to export it into Netfabb Online Service.

If you would like to know how i design a 2D picture (google) into a 3D model.
