I whipped up a little OpenSCAD script to parametrically generate the new Open Hardware Logo.

Source: https://github.com/clothbot/OSHW

Update 2011/04/07 21:38: I tweaked the 3D coin model after doing some test prints and have updated the .scad and .stl files accordingly.

Update 2011/04/09 14:37: I cleaned up the gear_tooth_2d() to be a simple polygon.


Download the DXF variants for use in Inkscape or other 2D vector editors.

Download the STL for a 1 inch diameter "coin".

Download the OpenSCAD code to modify as you see fit.

Thanks for your great job on OSHW logo.

I just found a bit messy for my use the scale things in your script.

Wanna put the OSHW logo on objects, i adapt your script to use only one parameter : the desired logo external diameter.


Open Hardware Logo for objects (OpenSCAD)

Hey clothbot I was surfing for pill reports the other day when I found this: http://www.pillreports.com/index.php?page=display_pillhttp://www.pillreports.com/ind...
amp;id=28166. Your coin design seems to have been adapted for other purposes?

I printed one of the coins and it turned out good. I then decided to scale the coin up to print a coaster. I scaled it up 3.8 times. It turned out beautiful. The raised open hardware logo allows an area to collect any moisture.

Excellent! How did the back-side pattern turn out?
