National Film Board of Canada logo (NFB / ONF)
by techknight, published
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. :)

While it prints (preferably in green), watch The Big Snit on the NFB website: http://www.nfb.ca/film/big_snit/
- Subdued but resolute patriotism!
