3D printing a logo in white

My first attempt at 3D printing with the Sassen Design logo.

The steps involved with 3D printing are fairly straight forward. 

  1. The artwork is created in Adobe Illustrator and exported as a .DWG file
  2. The .DWG file is opened in Google SketchUp and extruded to taste
  3. The file is then exported from SketchUp as a .STL file
  4. The .STL file is opened in MakerBox and is scaled to size
  5. It can then be sent to print – this took around 3.5 hours to print.
