Hack a Day Badge
by Devlin, published
Here is the how-to post on how the badge was created in OpenSCAD:
Now everyone can show that they read hackaday.com with this custom-designed badge.
It takes a little over an hour to print and the wrenches are pretty much guaranteed to pull up and/or warp the build surface.

The wrenches only pully up if the heatbed is too low, at least when using ABS. Anything under 88c curls up for me, anything over 95c seems to stick and need a jack hammer to be removed ;D
This skull prints nicely with no lifting around 88c. I have printed a few now different colors. Hackaday rocks!

2: Skeinforge said stl file.
3: The stl is not centered in the y direction so you will need to setup the build platform about 1cm towards the back from the center of the build platform if you have a Cupcake CNC.
4: This build has a huge initial surface area and will attempt to foil its own creation by pulling up. You will need to recite incantations, sacrifice dust bunnies in a fiery cauldron of acetone, whatever it takes, just don't get mad at your machine when your print starts to pull up.
5: Remove from the build platform and raft.
6: Attach a bar pin to the back with hot glue or epoxy.
7: Allow glue to cool/cure/dry.
8: Proudly wear upon your getup to show you read Hack a Day!
