3D Printing is a hobby in which one should not be afraid of failure. The fails are going to happen and through that failure, through the despair and struggle, the re-tweaking of settings, comes knowledge.

This Maker Coin embraces the fails we all encounter in our 3D Printing journey. It features a silhouette of 3D Benchy, complete with a big old spaghetti mess of a fail at the crown.

The phrase, "Ex Deliquo, Cognitio" borders the coin. The sentiment---from failure, knowledge.

How I Designed This


I designed the coin in Blender. For the Spaghetti, I am using Bezier Curves with a square as the Bevel Object. The sphaghetti is unsupported in places with the hope of provoking variation and real "micro fails" in the print. I was very much inspired by "Drooloop" Jelly Fish and Flowers by Mark Peeters (http://www.thingiverse.com/peetersm/about), but I wanted variation and chaos, so I used curves.

i'd love to print this in english, to show it in class!
is there a chance, you may remix it?

OOoh I am open to that. How soon would you need it? I don't think I'll be able to get a chance to work on this until Friday evening or Sunday morning. Pesky day jobs! :)

oh wow!
didn't expect it so soon :-)
take your time, there is no rush. within the next two weeks is sufficient.
thanks a lot!

hey there.
just wanted to remind you about the coin as a english version.
do you think, you still could do it (fast, perhaps)?

i did some progress with my class and soon it'll be a good timing!

Heya! Give "maker-coin-english.stl" (I just uploaded it to the Thing files) a whirl. I just finished up the modeling, so I haven't done a test print myself, but I checked the slicing preview and compared it with the original and I think you are all set.

I hope this is a hit with your students!

every learning process includes failure and only by confronting those you can overcome your own limits.
i'm so thankful right now!

Just made one with white background and blue text/benchy. I'll have to post a picture soon!

Sounds like a lovely color combination! I'll look forward to the picture!

Awesome job TGAW. I'll have one glued on my M2 as soon as I figure out my print issues!

We totally loved your maker coin Vicky! Thanks for making it and sharing the STL file :)

Love it. This made my day.

This is great. Gonna make one to look at when i want to throw it all out the window.
