3D-Printed Trophy for OktoBEERfest
December 28, 2016
We were asked to incorporate a firkin, (a small steel cask) into the design.
At the event, Brian and I manned a tent where we demonstrated 3D printing.
I designed the firkin and wine stem in OpenSCAD, and Brian designed the hops handles in MeshMixer.
Using the logo from the event, I designed an acrylic label to go on the firkin. A spot for the label was embedded in to the firkin design. The acrylic label was laser cut and engraved on the Sector67 laser cutter. Brian used a rub-on paint to blacken the engraved letters.
Brian printed the trophy parts on a Lulzbot TAZ 4. We painted them with metallic paints, including brass paint to which we applied a patina.
