The Chinese New Year is almost here, and we are entering the Year of the Dragon. Celebrate the New Year with these fun chinese dragon coins and medallions. Give them out as party favors, play games with them, or just have the coolest medallion at the party.


Download. Resize if you want. Print. Post a pic of you wearing the medallion!

This is my first real attempt at doing something intricate with Blender. I'm happy with the results. I lost the fine details when I printed the coin on my ToM, but you still get the general idea of the design. I'm including the .blend file for everyone to play with.

I did not design the dragon. I'm not that good. I used the following image from the wikimedia commons: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dragon_from_Chinese_Dragon_Banner_Red_Version.svg by Tsange. Even though it's public domain, I like to give credit where credit is due.

This looks good, although the mesh is bad on the coin. Didn't try the medallion. According to MeshLab, it contains "non 2-manifold surfaces" (whatever that means), and that threw my slicer into a tizzy. On my printer it mostly printed fine, except for the flat part of the coin, which turned out... weird.

how to open .blend and .scad files?

awesome, more asian things please
