3D Printing has done a lot for us over the years, but never before has it made us more FRESH. in an attempt to remedy the situation, I've created a fully parametric set of word rings that can be customized to say anything you want, and let all the fools know you have legit street cred.
DISCLAIMER: The street cred gained from wearing these awesome rings is not at all legit.


Enter your own parameters into the variables at the top of the SCAD file (or just use makerbot customizer), export STL, print, and START LOOKING FRESH.

Those glasses look cool :)

Great item description!

Is the file set up to print the rings first on the platform? or will the words be flat on the platform?

If it is ring first, does it still print ok?

The words are set to face up at the time of writing. It prints much better with the words faced down. I plan to change the rotation that the script applies later today.

Nice! btw, you can make the script orient them with the text down for printing and set the default view in customizer so the preview shows the bottom. Check out: http://customizer.makerbot.com/docshttp://customizer.makerbot.com...

It was my original intention, but openSCAD started throwing some nasty compilation errors (on lines that didn't exist) near the end and I figured it was a sign I should stop trying to put finishing touches on it. I may revisit it in a day or two.

I've decided to leave them upwards facing after all because if I didn't, all the previews for people who have customized these wouldn't be readable from the thing preview! And I'm really enjoying reading all the different variations people are making!
