This is a remake of my other badge here http://www.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.


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.

great work! if you have time, could you do the badge from the TOS movies, with the oval bar behind it?

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

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.

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

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