I love Major League Baseball and specifically the Oakland Athletics. Every year San Francisco and Oakland play in a series called 'Battle of the Bay' where there are two series played of 3 to 4 games each. One series in San Francisco and one in Oakland. The team who wins the most games out of the two series gets awarded the Battle of the Bay trophy and gets to move their team's logo from the side of the trophy to the top. The trophy was introduced for the first time in 2018 after Oakland won the battle of the bay series. The trophy is made of steel from the old Bay Bridge making it that much more special. I love this trophy and think its really amazing so I decided to replicate it. This is my first project and I was very new to 3D printing so it was a lot of fun to design, print, and finish this.
If there are any issues with the project let me know so I can fix them. Hope you guys like!
Let me know what you think
Cura slicing software:
-Print Temp: 200
-Bed Temp: 60
-Infill: I used 25% but you can use whatever you feel necessary since it just sits and isn't functional.
-Speed: 50 mm/s
-Supports: Yes it is needed for some parts.
-Bed Adhesion: Brim
-Layer height: I used 0.3mm for bigger pieces and 0.2mm for smaller pieces but you can use either.
These are the materials I purchased at a hardware store for post print assembly:
-(56x) M3 nut caps (28 are glued to front and back of trophy base marked in yellow)
-(16x) M3 x 16mm bolts (Marked in green. Front has 6 and back has 10)
-(4x) M3 x 20mm bolts (Marked in blue)
-(7x) M3 x 10mm bolts (Marked in red. 3 in front and 4 in the back)
-Metallic Grey Spray Paint (several coats)
-Gold paint (Don't know how to get a rustic look like in the photo, so I just used gold and grey)
Tools I used:
-Dremel ( to drill holes and clean up any imperfections)
-Needle nose pliers or Leatherman
-Super Glue (for both base halves and the nut caps on the base)
There are two sides to this so don't forget to print 2 of the necessary pieces to complete the front and back; like the truss left and right side, truss front and back and truss cross members .
