And again a simply, customizable OpenSCAD design. This time it's a two component stamp, a generic handle part and an interchangeable rubber part; no gluing necessary, simply print one or more texts and switch them around as you like.
Updates / News
- 2018-12-04: v1.2
- Add new parameters
base_shape for new round / oval base shape.
- Removed specific rubber dimensions in favor of auto calculated size, as in a previous version (thickness, rim width etc.).
- Add support for 3 line of text + different font sizes per line.
- Added STLs of an oval shaped 60x40mm
- Added a simple "Heart" example (hearts instead of text) to the OpenSCAD code (not usable in Customizer) + STLs.
- 2018-11-27: Added STLs of larger Version
How does this work?
With the Customizer you are able to create your own stamp, not only with a custom text but also in a different size with a different handle style.
I like / don't care about the style and size, I only want a custom text
In this case do the following:
First choose which model (size) you want:
I want a different design and/or size
- Open the Customizer, select
model = Handle, set
base_dimensions, set a fitting
rubber_dim and play with the other parameters until you get the desired result.
- Create a new thing, download it and print it.
- Again open the Customizer, select
model = Rubber and follow the steps from the previous section but make sure, that the parameters are the same as in the previous steps, so the size of the rubber part will fit the previously created handle.
- Create a new thing, download it and print it, preferably using some flex material (e.g. TPU).
In any case print the handle with some sturdy material like PLA/PETG and the rubber with some flex material like TPU. When using the the default settings (no offsets) the rubber part should tightly fit into the handle. Since it's TPU you should be able to squeeze it in if your printer isn't calibrated perfectly, if it's still not fitting either consider ever so slightly reducing the x/y values of the
rubber_dim parameter or, in case you print the handle too, tweak the offset parameter
- Always set the
resolution parameter to
Draft while tweaking (faster), but remember to set it to
Normal before committing your changes.
There are currently 3 standard models, the smaller
Stamp 1, and the larger
Stamp 2 rectangular shaped, and the oval shaped
Stamp 1 has a 50x26mm base (46x22 space for the text).
All STLs models named
Stamp 1 are interchangeable. If you use the Customizor without changing any dimensional value, your resulting models will also be compatible.
Stamp 2 has a 70x30mm base (66x26 space for the text).
Stamp 2 Bazier Handle.stl: A basic, Bézier curve based, stamp handle fitting all "Stamp 2" named rubber parts (STLs).
Stamp 2 Rubber - Fragile.stl: Rubber with inscription "FRAGILE" plus a border, font
Vollkorn:style=Black size 10.
Stamp 2 Rubber - Approved.stl: Rubber with inscription "APPROVED" plus a border, font
Stamp 2 Rubber - Rejected.stl: Rubber with inscription "REJECTED" plus a border, font
Vollkorn:style=Black size 8.
Stamp 2 Rubber - Very Important.stl: Rubber with inscription "VERY IMPORTANT" plus a border, font
Catamaran:style=Black size 7.
Stamp 2 Rubber Blank.stl: A template without any text.
Stamp 2 Rubber Blank with Border.stl: Same as
Blank but with a border.
Stamp 2 Bazier Full - FRAGILE.stl: Full model, Bézier handle + "FRAGILE" rubber (just a demo, not intended for printing).
Stamp 3 has a 60x40mm oval base.
- Material: PLA/PTEG
- Support: yes (just a few mm for the cutout)
- 20% infill
- 4 top/bottom layers
- 3 shells
- Material: TPU
- Support: no
- 30% infill (if any is needed)
- 4 top/bottom layers
- 3 shells
Make sure the extrusion multiplier is calibrated correctly and the infill-overlap is sufficient to avoid gaps in the text. If there are still some gaps, repeatedly add some super-glue.
If the surface (text) is not perfectly plane or if it's doesn't absorb the the ink as you want it to, try sanding it.
