You could probably produce these faster on a laser cutter, but I don't have a laser cutter, so I printed these on my Thing-o-Matic and my Prusa. The process for creating this is a bit more complex than it probably needs to be:

  • Convert the EPS to a DXF with pstoedit -dt -f dxf:-polyaslines maker\ badge.eps maker\ badge.dxf
  • Extrude the DXF using OpenSCAD, then save as STL.
  • Repair the STL with netfabb Basic.
  • Scale the STL and flip it over (assuming you want a smooth finish on the front).
  • Print it!
