Introduction: 3D-Printed Spray Paint Stencil

About: Engineer, Clemson grad, writer, maker of random contraptions for fun and profit.

This video will take you through how I made a logo stencil on my 3D printer using a DXF stored from another project. The process is fairly straightforward if you understand modelling and generating print files.
