Higher resolution Trek Badge with magnet hole by tmorris9 Nov 18, 2012

Description

This is a remake of my other badge here thingiverse.com/thing:34807

This one is higher resolution and has a hole or round inset in the back for a 3/8" magnet. This allows it to be a fridge magnet or use another magnet under a shirt to attach to clothes.

good point, it would be bad for a steal nozzle, not so bad for aluminium/other things

I am sure you could, people do it with other things. I just don't mind glueing and I am not crazy about the possibility of the nozzle hitting a hard magnet but that's just me.

hmm, i wonder if it is possible to put the magnet in it while its printing, no visible atatchment!

Instructions

For best results use a .35mm nozzle or smaller. I got best results with a .15mm layer height and printed very slow 10mm-20mm second.

I did fill a few pinholes in the silver part with ABS/acetone solution and then lightly sanded it before painting. Glue a magnet in the back you are ready for service.

Thanks for the design! I made a derivative for a different size magnet. These will make my new years party even more awesome!
