Summary

My wife wanted to use one of these in a bracelet and needed 2 loops. I modified the OpenSCAD file to allow 0-10 loops in Customizer.

I have tried nearly every setting I can find and cannot get the 3D printer to print an 'M' in the center.

in monogram_pendant, where after the bottom is drawn and before the monogram_3d is drawn I added:

    if (dual_color == 1) // GDD
    {
    color([.26,.7,1])
    translate([0, 0, backing_thickness - epsilon])

difference() {
linear_extrude(height = backing_thickness, convexity = 10)
{
union()
{
scale([radius + backing_outset + kerning, radius + backing_outset + kerning / 2, 1])
circle
(
1,
$fn = res
);
loop_connector(loop_connector_rotation,radius,backing_outset,kerning,loop_connector_line_thickness,loop_count);
}
}
scale( [1,1,1.1] )
monogram_3D
(
letters,
letter_thickness,
radius,
line_thickness,
kerning,
res
);

    }
    } // GDD

You poor guy!!! (aka Great job.)

  • I hope you used a preprocessor to generate that alphabet function code!
  • You should build Adobe Type 1 fonts. Just slightly more complicated in post script but just as fun.
  • I'm looking at a dual extruder version...
    I think you generated STL, then sliced it for 2 prints, or just changed filament in the middle.
    I took it and generated a dual version, but it still could have been done by changing filament...
    So now I'll play with a circle and differencing monogram3d and having 2 separate shells. Then cura can split, and combine for
    dual merge printing. (This probably wont work. But, generating stl for 1 color, then for the 2nd color as separate stl files will...)

Added a backing=2 and in monogram_pendent() the 2 objects...

How did you get the two-colors? Dual extruder?
