The numbers on my mailbox are starting to fall off due to the weather. So rather then buy new ones, I chose to print them. These numbers are actually the FORTE font and set at 4 inches high. I extruded them 4mm thick for a nice solid piece. the nail/screw holes are modeled in as well.


  1. Print your numbers as needed.
  2. Paint if you want. (make sure you use plastic frendly outdoor paint)
  3. Mount using nails or I actually prefer screws so they don't work back out as the temperatures go up and down.

Note: I printed mine in PLA and on a 90+ degree day they did get a little soft. ABS may be the better choice. If you do print a set keep an eye on them for a couple days to make sure they don't get too soft and start to curl.

What font is used? i need letters to for the local ham club

Thanks for making this! It was really, really hard to find this in search for some reason. I knew someone had to have made one, but -- maybe this could use a few more tags. :)

Opened up 3.stl in Blender and couldn't find the object... Did autozoom to find it and it's waaaaaay off to the side, perhaps 100,000 or more units off to the side, so far that floating point errors are causing rendering issues. Can deal with that, but might cause people a lot of confusion FYI.

i will have to try and run it through my current slicer. I tested them all when I posted them originally but things could have changed.

That would be appreciated! I really like the font and I would like to print the mising numbers from my adress, thank! :)

The number 4 is not slicing correctly, I see it is okay in the plater tab, but the code only generate the 2 holes for the bolt... nothing else. Am I the only one that has experienced that?

Had to feed 0.stl through netfabb before Slic3r 0.9.7 could slice it.
