Now you can print a 'Tower' of 3D Skill Badges, to really give your printer a workout.


Select the number of badges you want to print (1 to 10), and add your own custom text for the sides. The polygon_count is for rounding off the corners more/less. Be careful, this thing has lots of gaps to test the ability of your printer to 'bridge' across them, and at least on my ToM, I need to keep a close eye on the build when this is going on. I use a piece of an aluminum yardstick to help make sure that no bits of the filament stick up above the build surface. I have also found it helpful sometimes to apply some tape ( blue painters tape ) to the bottom of the build, but it can be tricky doing this, while the build is in process!

You can now adjust the height of the stacking pylons, as well as adjusting the overall height.
My first two attempts haven't quite successfully made it all the way to the end of the print, I'll keep trying though! I hope you do too!
