    I was disappointed when I found that there weren't many Protectorate emblems floating around the web, so I made one myself.

    All you need is a 3d printer/3d printing service, a computer with a slicer installed, and some filament.

    The size of the part itself is a little off, so I usually scale it up to 4x its original size, which is a pretty good size for a keychain if you ask me. The two-color look is achieved by switching the filament when it gets to approx. 52% (50% might leave a thin layer of gold on the black background, which kind of ruins the contrast between the gold and black).

    The filament I used was Esun PLA Pro Black and Hatchbox "True Gold" PLA on my Wanhao Duplicator i3 with 20% infill.

    Hope you enjoy!

    It's things like this that make me want to get a 3D printer.

    If you're still active on the forums I'd love to see any other creative endeavours with the printer.
