Hack a Day Badge
by Devlin, published
This is the badge the Hack a Day team wore around CES and gave away to a few people. You can see the posts here:
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.
1: Download the stl file.
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!
