Would you be able to resize these for me?

Would love these in a DXF or SVG file. Fabulous design, great gift for my kiddo's.

Hi, Have you been able to print the green one in its actual size ? Somehow all the holes are not there when printing small, if I double the size then I have the holes correctly. I am not sure if it is a problem with the settings of my printer or the print,,, Thanks

Truthfully i haven't printed the the forest symbol, a few people have though (check out the "made" section) and it does seem that the holes may be too small for some printers to handle.

These files were made using the vector files of the actual graphic, so it was more about accuracy rather than printability.

Hello Stuartblarg,

These are great! They are so clean cut!

How did you create these? You said that you made them from vector files, but how did you get the vector files? Did you take an image and then run it through a program to create a vector? Which programs did you use? What did you use to make the vector to a STL file?

I would love to learn how you do this. Thanks!

Hi there, i'm glad you like them.
From memory i just searched for Magic the gathering vector files and downloaded a big sheet with a whole bunch of the symbols.
I opened that file in Adobe Illustrator so that I could single out the mana symbols that i wanted and save them off as .dxf files so I could open them in solidworks to extrude and create the 3D files.

There might be a simpler way of doing it but this is the way I know how. There are a lot of vector files floating around on the internet for popular thing such as logos and symbols, if you can convert them into .dxf files you can open them in most 3D modeling programs, if you are just getting started i might suggest looking at Sketchup, its pretty user friendly and you can get a free version called Sketchup make.

Hope this helps!

sorry, is there an issue?

yes mi repetier host whit slic3r 9.10b cannot slice all the badge i dont now why

Im sorry i'm not sure how to fix that. The files were just a single extrude, i cant model them any simpler and i haven't used slicer before.
