Would be great for someone to make some Typeset models for Old-Fashioned Printing Press. I'll print them and try it out of you want.

I've actually done both metal typesetting and letterpress in the past. Not sure if the prints would be tough enough for the pressures involved, and I don't have access to a manual printing press these days! I use MLetterpress on the iPad these days, a lot less mess!

Good idea though!

Going to try and fire up the old press this weekend with few letters :) I'll let you know how it turns out. Who knows I might only be able to make a few paper prints but it's still awesome to merge old fashioned and modern tech. I have a feeling this will end up as an aluminum sand cast.

Font-tastic! Love these designs :)

Thanks for sharing, the "a" is just finishing up. Starting a set, 50% size. I think this will be a good project to clean out my old filament cabinet.

Thanks! Yes, they are great little prints and still useful for smaller stuff. I will have to try one at the max size my UM2 can cope with.

Great idea, thanks for sharing! An A would be nice ;)

An 'A' bowl is now available!
