Ep 1: Custom OaD merch! -or- I got a 3D Printer!

I finally got a 3D printer after waiting for 2 years of research and "it's not quite there yet". The wife let me pick up a Printrbot Simple Metal, and I have been making some cool stuff with it.

Here's my setup:

This setup uses a Raspberry Pi running Octoprint to control the printer. It has a web interface so I can run the printer from anywhere. When I get one of the new Raspberry Pi 2 boards and a camera, I'm going to upgrade it so Octoprint can make a time-lapse video of each print.

I also plan to do a Hangout on Air on YouTube at least on Tuesdays with a live print.

Since I've made so many friends here that have helped me out through a tough time, I want to give back. I'm looking to make some plastic OaD swag for all you peeps!

I can currently print PLA plastic, and I'm ordering a heated bed today so I can use ABS plastic (the stuff that Lego blocks are made from).

I'm getting better at using the 123D suite of apps and I have Inventor now, but I can use some help. There are several people in the clan that kick ass at using Photoshop, Illustrator, AutoCAD and Inventor. If I can get some good PSD, SVG and possibly STL files (If you are good at 3D) of the OaD logos and other logos (Game logos would have to be on the DL, as I could get into trouble for copyright issues. As long as I don't sell them, should be considered fan art.), I could turn these into cool stuff.

My first project is to make dog tags with your gamertag, OaD logo and either a CoD or Destiny logo. I'll have this blue PLA now, plus I'm getting some green PLA and possibly some of the other colors from Filament Outlet. Their PLA works well in my printer for smaller things.

If you guys would like one, I'll make a prototype for me and post it here first. Then I'll start making them if it looks good. I'm not going to charge for the tag, but I would ask that you would cover my shipping to you if this goes live.

Thoughts?

I actually do engraving for a living and when it comes down to logos etc when putting them on something you can't charge for it but you can charge for your time. It's no different than you drawing your favorite hockey team logo on the front of your binder (if you were still in school of course) Also when someone asks to have something done like a logo it is the responsibility of that person to have the rights of the said logo anyway not yours.

Xenmic, thanks for the information. Time is the problem here, as I'm in my last year of my Bus Admin program. My time costs aren't anything, because I have this printer down to set and forget (almost). The plastic is cheap, but I would just roll the cost into shipping.

I'm going to prototype some tags this weekend, posts will be here and I may live stream it on YouTube.

I'm in that sounds pretty awesome. I have a client who does shirts and swag, so if anyone wants some stuff like that with logo I can get us a deal.

Pretty much anything. Nice stuff Under Armour, Nike, etc. Plus they sell about any crap like beer cozies and promotional stuff you can think of. I'll get some options.

I'll for sure throw some scratch in for some OAD swag. If you need a donation or something for "RL crafting mats" let me know.

Im FAAAR from an artist but in my head im seeing Herbert ( the old pedophile from family guy) sitting in a chair, his walker near by with an X1 controller in his hands wearing a headset & his dog jesse at his feet, Older and Deadlier.
the only real hang up i have with this image is the implication of pedophilia hah but id buy that shirt lol
