Latest badge off the mill, this one for a Civic diesel. Cut again using a 1mm endmill and the same cutting strategy as the FAIRYTAIL emblem with tiny 0.2mm stepovers to produce very fine machine marks to reduce stress on the tiny cutter. The finished result came out great and was a shame to infill […]
This one was a tough one. Lots of failures and tests before I could get it to be just how I wanted it. I was contacted through my Etsy page by a customer in America who wanted a badge making up for his friend for his birthday. We had lots of messages back and forth […]
An old friend I used to work with is massively into his MR2s or anything JDM for that matter. He recently bought his mum an MR2 but the radio cubby blank had some ghastly holes drilled into it by a past owner who tried their hand at installing what we can only assume was an […]
A good friend of mine owns a gorgeous Turbo 1.8 NA MX5 so of course I had to make him a badge! Cut using a 2mm endmill and colour filled with enamel. Hope you like it Lee and can’t wait to see it fitted!
More practice with the 1mm endmill today in the form of a custom ZOOM Engineering badge for a customer. Once again first cut produced a finished badge so I’m confident I’ve nailed down the settings now!
Over the moon with this one. Another custom badge for a customer with a Honda JV-6 engine fitted to a Miata under way. Just black colour fill left to sort out then off to the post office! This was the first time using a 1mm endmill on the new mill so was very nerve racking […]
After a very long break due to a career change and 2 house moves I’ve opened up shop again! I’ll be offering a smaller selection of items to start with due to purchasing a new machine so am yet to test a lot of the old parts and the 3D printer has been retired to […]
So things have been quiet recently whilst I got my new mill up and running and converted to CNC. One of the things I’m hoping to offer through the site very soon is custom rear badges made on the mill. Below are some examples of badges I’ve already done for customers through Facebook or forums. […]
So the new door bushings are now available to preorder. I made two sets to start with, one for myself and one for a previous customer to test them out and the effects are better than the printed units with much better durability! Preorders are now being taken with the aim to post them on […]
With the overwhelming success of the door bushings and people requesting more items which require the use of the printer I had two options. Buy a new printer, or find another way of producing the door bushings. I opted to find another way of producing the door bushings and today have spoken to a supplier […]
