As I’ve been posting print photos to Instagram under Dwyer Devices as well as posting here, I thought it would be fun to print a name plate for the site, drawing a bit of inspiration from these other text prints. A straight copy of any of the styles didn’t seem quite right, so I designed something with more of a nod towards 3D printing and melting plastic:

I should have printed this with an attached brim, as multiple points around the edge pulled away from the print bed. Despite that, I like this turquoise filament – really consistent and solid color.
