This was an experiment to try and embed a NFC tag into a 3D Print

I used this model as a test: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:58195
Got my NFC Tags from http://www.rapidnfc.com

More details on my blog: http://tomvandenbon.co.za/blog/?p=33

Note: The STL is unmodified from the original, I just included it for completeness.


(1) Start Print
(2) Pause a few layers in
(3) Place NFC Tag
(4) Resume Print
(5) ???
(6) Profit!
