He sent me his Adobe Illustrator logo file, so I started hacking away at it to create some models that we could print :D
Step 1: Export Your Vector.
To open this vector in a modeling program like Tinkercad, I had to export it to a .SVG file.
To do this, I selected my vector, and went to File>SAVE AS.
I selected the .SVG filetype and then hit OK.
Step 2: Tinkercad
Setting up an account was a breeze, and I was able to start mushing models together quickly.
Step 3: THINGIVERSE!
Thingiverse is a place for you to share your digital designs with others, and appropriate others designs into your own under the Attribution rules of Creative Commons.
Step 4: Arrange Models in Tinkercad
I did this by dragging the marquee over the entire workspace, then hitting the "Group" button in the upper right hand corner of the Tinkercad browser.
Step 5: Export Model
I know that the printer I was going to use prefers .stl files, but it may vary case to case.
Step 6: Printing the Model.
When the prints come out of the printer, they are coated in a support material that needs to be scraped off, and in some instances, power washed off.
This print needed minimal cleaning, and I can't wait to install it at our space, or make a mold out of it so we can easily cast other models like it. :D
