Wanted to take a short break and so this turned out to be about a 30 minute project (30 minutes to draw, 30 minutes to print). Someone wanted a bat-keychain, and a simple one. A million models of this kind of thing exists... but I decided to try to draw it form scratch.
I found an appropriate bat-logo design image, and imported it into Sketchup. I ended up having to install the bezier curve extension to get the right bat curves, and also the STL extension so that I could export the finished model for use in the 3d printer. I was stymied for a moment on how to make the ending shape a face, but just drawing one line on top of it make Sketchup recognize the face.
I also drew it too large, and by accident, found out how to resize the whole model so that it was 4 inches wide total.
4 inches turns out to be too big. He will want the finished project half this size.
Printing was interesting - I printed it at the lowest resolution and least filled (Draft version), and I'm happy with it. it is filled with a wide crosshatching, and the first 2 solid layers over that drooped naturally.
I'm going to keep this as a scroll saw template project. But this now makes me curious about very tiny prints....
