Any chance someone could post a "How To Create Coins" for people who are new to 3D printing? I keep rereading his "instructions" and I still haven't a clue what he's saying. Run "$ coin_skel.pl a.svg b.svb > ab.scad"? Where do I run it? How do I run it?

You could also get a book on Foreign coins from a coin dealer or library for inspiration.

You should make one that has Batman on both sides, for when someone asks, "Who would win in a fight, Superman or Batman?"

Instructions

Download, slice and print. The coins all have unsupported overhang on the bottom sides, but it usually prints cleaner without support.

To create new coins run:
$ coin_skel.pl a.svg b.svb > ab.scad

Then tune the scaling and offset variables in ab.scad. This uses inkscape and pstoedit to convert the SVG files into EPS and then DXF. tile.scad can be used to make plates of coins (or other things).

Study a book on Heraldry for a lot of device suggestions.

You could make a "Round Tuit", for those who were going to do something when they "Got a round tuit."
