Embed NFC Tags in your 3D Prints by tomvdb Apr 15, 2013


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

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