Best Dressed Leprechaun Trophy

About: The more mistakes I make, the more experience I gain.

Have you even found yourself in need of a "Best Dressed Leprechaun Trophy"? No? Me neither.

But my wife found the need for one and ask that I design and print a couple of these trophies for an upcoming office party. My guess is it's a St. Patrick's Day party, but that's just a guess.

I printed all parts at .15mm vertical resolution with 20% infill in PLA. "Potato.stl" must be printed with support.

I've included all components I used to design the plaque. I printed "Plaque.3mf" on a dual extrusion Ultimaker 3 Extended in metallic silver and green. But if your printer is not a dual extrusion printer, an option is to print "Plaque.stl" starting with the background color, then pause the printer at 1mm height ("Plaque Frame.stl" is 1mm thick), change the filament to the letter color, then proceed with the print.

To assemble, I applied double sided tape to the back of the plaque, then pressed the plaque in place on the base. Finally, I pressed the potato onto the base tower and applied a small amount of glue to hold it securely in place.

Now onto something different.

Designed using Autodesk Fusion 360, sliced using Cura 3.1, and printed in PLA on an Ultimaker 2+ Extended and an Ultimaker 3 Extended.
