Customizable Nametag with Icons #3DPrinting #3DThursday


Roberto shared his customizable name tag project on Thingiverse.

This project uses OpenSCAD to create custom name tags. The name tags feature twin icons, text for name, text for title, and an optional border. Use the Customizer to adjust the icon type, text, and size of the various name tag components.

The OpenSCAD script for this thing borrows from and was inspired by Fryns’s ‘Any Name Sign’; http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:269405

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
