I wanted something simple to print out as my first print. I really
liked the http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:14728 Printrbot ID with
number. I downloaded the files and played with it, but I wanted to
customise it a little more.
Go to New Sign enter some text, some dimensions, look at the preview -
download the files. Viola. </p>
How it works: Django application. The text is made in to a SVG
graphics file. Using inkscape, the SVG is converted to a eps files -
and a PNG used for previewing. The eps is then converted to dxf using
pstoedit. The a text files is generated for OpendSCAD which extrudes
the dxf file. Further details can be gained from the sources files -
The server is host a very, very cheap VPS. So sometime the production
of file may take up to 1 min.
