My creation :)

I’m rather proud of this! This is the first thing I have printed on my 3D printer that I have also designed.

It’s the logo that I designed (based on idea Kate, our rector, had) for our Saturday 5pm service, rendered in 3D as stand up sign.

It’s not perfect, and I still have a lot to learn- I actually cracked it getting the support pieces off as I need to think about the way the “grain” of the print runs when I slice it to print (but it glued back together very easily) and it was my longest print to date as well, 36 hours and 33 minutes. But overall I am very happy with it 🙂

It was printed leaning back so that the relief letters would be at a 45 degree angle and would print without needing their own supports, which worked very well but meant a lot of support material for the slab they are on. Here are a few more pictures during the print and after…
