As an exercise in 3D modelling, and nerdly pursuits, I decided to make a medallion of our clan icon. 

 

I hand traced our logo from a jpeg, and extruded to depth, the bananas were a couple stock models I found on the web and modified for my use. This work was done in AutoCAD

 

 

Here's a rendered version of the 3D model.

 

 

After a little massaging in 3D Builder, I've imported the model into my printers software to print at a 2" [50mm] diameter. Here is a short video during the printing process.

 

 

 

About an hour later, this is what you have, this is straight off the bed, no clean up. The resolution is about 20 microns.

 

 

A happy little accident with some backlighting.

 

 

Hand Painted as a mock up, the final version will be printed in the 4 individual colors, and stacked/overlayed for a much cleaner appearance.

Extrude those splines brother!

Super Geek! I love it.

 

Possibly something to give to people who have contributed to your favorite cause.

I imagine there would be a few non -G- people who would like one.

 

Well done!

p.s. The video is marked as private.

p.s.s. Avatar is just for today as homage. It's too good to pass up!

p.s.s.s. Why did the hatch lines get engraved if they are not part of the 3d model?

Your pic with the hat on got me to thinking that you should replicate just the bananas.

Attach a safety-pin to the back with some hot glue.... Instant -G- broach.

 

Then update the photo with the goggles an a black beret on!

 

Reading your post promted me to look into challenge coins.

And that led me to these lapel pins.

 

After we do our logo update, I'll get some for my guys.
