3d printed Combadge by SpiderTrekfan616 3d printed Combadge by SpiderTrekfan616
This is my first successful 3D Print, I made this in Blender 2.78, then exported it as an stl file on a flash drive and printed it out on a 3d Systems Cube 3 using yellow PLA Filament. It took about 29 minutes to print out but it was worth waiting for. It measures 49mm long x 45mm wide x 8mm deep. Hopefully I'll be able to make a silicone mold,  cast it in resin and paint it With Testors Gold, Duplicolor Galaxy Silver and some sort of black. I'm gonna be making another Badge for the Philadelphia Based Costuming Group U.S.S. Ranger. Let me know what you guys think of this.

Thanks, it took a bit of trial and error to get it right.

Can't wait to see how the painted resin version comes out!

Out of all the badges in the TNG period, this one ranks as one of the best alternate designs!

Yeah, my Favorite thing about it is that it can show your rank in the event that you somehow can't find your rank pips (If you're in the first officer Worf Timeline that is)

There's one small downside though, as when you get promoted you need to have a new combadge (must be interesting when you become an Admiral)!

The Admiral's Badge is just the color reversed version of the line officer badge, With the Rank of Fleet Admiral a Silver four point Star is Added to the Gold Delta to supplement the Four Silver Rank Bars.

Just wait, When I make a Silicone Mold and Casting Resin I'll send you one because I know how much you love this badge.
