Thing-a-Day 2011 #7 - 2-Color Baltimore Node Logo Plot

This post used to be on Posterous. I rescued my posts before Posterous shut down and am now sharing them here.

I’m on the road and away from my MakerBot, etc., but I’ve created a version of the Baltimore Node logo that should be plottable in 2 colors using either the MakerBot Unicorn or the EggBot! I also replaced the outline text we were using with a Hershey Font version using the SVGs I posted yesterday.

Another tweak - I played around with Inkscape’s XML editor to get these things into layers. It’s a neat trick, but kind of a pain. I also reordered several of the paths for better and/or more interesting drawing order. I’ll see how it turns out when I get back to my bot.

You can find it on Thingiverse:

And here’s what Posterous does with the SVG when I upload it. No promises that it will be useful for anything.
