The Historical Marker Template is suitable for commemorating a historical place or event. The example Historical Marker celebrates the founding of RepRap. I would like to collaborate with other Thingiverse users to create a series of markers recognizing key milestones in the history of 3D printing. These markers could be used at demonstrations and educational events to add an additional layer of information while showcasing 3D printing as an integral part of the history of MAKING. Please share your ideas for other historical markers or make and share your own.

The original purpose of this Historical Marker Template was as part of a Social Science lesson plan http://designmaketeach.com/2013/04/30/project-idea-design-a-historical-marker/
Update: Added Inkscape SVG file and PDF templates.


The Historical Marker Template was created from scratch based on common design elements found in images of historical markers. The examples were primed and painted with acrylic paints.
