It’s been a while since I last posted, it’s been a busy year! I thought I would come back and share a project I completed last spring/summer.
My coworker and his girlfriend decided to start a garden last spring in their new apartment together. As a housewarming gift, I thought I would make little vegetable labels. It was a fun project and I had a blast designing the labels in Rhino, then printing on my Prusa. There were 8 different types of vegetables they were growing:
- Snap Peas
- Bell Pepper
I came up with the designs using linework in Rhino:
And extruded to create the 3D models:
And finally created the STLs (here’s basil):
I unfortunately did not take any photos of all the prints (darn!), but I did print my mom a tomato and a pepper, which I tried painting (I think the paint looks quite bad, I prefer just the white material). I printed them in ABS, and the pepper label received an acetone vapor bath (you can see the smoothness in comparison to the tomato label.
Anyways, it was a fun hobby project that got me to do some design outside of work! If you would like to download the STLs, they can be found on Thingiverse here:
