Today I will take you through the instructions on how to create this image above
Step 1: Draw
Use Google Sketchup to draw. Start out by drawing the outline. I used the freehand tool to trace around an image. I then used the Push&Pull tool to make the image 3D. Next, I exported from Google Sketchup using export stl.
Step 2: Open in Makerbot
I used a Makerbot replicator 5th generation to print my design, rafts on. I scaled the model to be less than 3 inches.
