The NFB logo is a beloved icon to many Canadians.

I chose to make a 3D printed version of the "Man Seeing" figure because I wanted to print something cool with my UV-reactive green ABS plastic.

The original source of the logo is an EPS file that I found on SeekLogo here: http://www.seeklogo.com/nfb-onf-logo-99153.html

I deleted the non-figure portions, saved it as SVG, and then extruded it into 3D using Blender.

PS: I know some folks might prefer the original 1969 logo with the free-floating iris/head, but it's more practical to print the modern one as a single piece. :)

  1. Download NFB_logo.stl

  2. While it prints (preferably in green), watch The Big Snit on the NFB website: http://www.nfb.ca/film/big_snit/

  3. Subdued but resolute patriotism!
