Letter Blocks by langfordw Jun 29, 2009

Description

I made these for fathers day a while back (printed out my dad's name) but they actually came out really well. They have a nice sound and feel to them. Since then I've just been printing out random letters and rediscovering the joy of playing with blocks.

**Just uploaded the whole alphabet. Enjoy :)
I've just been designing the letters as I need them but if you have a specific request just let me know. (I haven't quite worked out how to make parametric models easy to share)

Awesome! That's great! Thanks.
Actually, I went ahead and did it. Here are the numbers:

This has been one of my favorite go-to prints that I've printed over the years.

I'd love it if you could make the digits 0-9 as well, in the same font. If it's easy enough for you to do (in the same layout/style etc with the same tool), great. If you can't, just say so and I'll take a stab at it in openscad (but I'd far rather see the digits in the same style.. these pieces are historic to me. :) )

My son was looking at the reversed images on this page and asked, "Hey, can we make one that's a stamp?" I had a great thought and reversed the X stepper connector, and it printed a perfect reversed block for him.
actually one corner peeled up so if this happens or its just not printing the whole letter you should apply acetone mixed with plastic to the surface and let it sit for a day then when its dry sand it until it is no longer shiny also use a 220+ grit :)
Could you Zip/tar/rar all these? Im lazy :)
great idea. hope that helps.
