IEEE Region-3 will be holding SoutheastCon in Lexington, KY, March 13-16, 2014. Unlike most IEEE regional conferences, SoutheastCon has a long tradition of having a Technical Program in which peer-reviewed papers on any IEEE-relevant topics are presented -- and I am the program chair this year. The paper submission deadline is January 5, 2014 and more details are/will be posted at http://aggregate.org/southeastcon2014/. This keychain is the "save the date" reminder that was given to all the paper authors who presented at SoutheastCon 2013. It also was distributed from the Aggregate.Org/UK research exhibit at IEEE/ACM Supercomputing 2013.
A very simple and fast print in PLA. The thickness of the model was kept to a minimum to speed printing, but stretching it to be a little taller will make a more substantial-feeling keychain. Use of semi-transparent PLA helps to emphasize the 3D-printed nature of the part, and the IEEE logo is more clearly visible when a translucent print is backlit.
