So, if anyone’s been paying attention, I’ve created a new logo for this site, based on a new maker coin that I designed.
For a brief explanation/history of these, here’s the guy who came up with them.

It’s an object you can use as the equivalent of a filament swatch and to show people what 3D printing can make. It’s helpful as a “1 standard print” for testing filaments, printer calibration, and slicer settings.
I thought it was about time that I made one of my own. Then, through some manipulation in a couple programs, I converted it into a logo. I think the symbolism is kinda obvious. Technology + magic + a medieval wooden door = Technomancer’s Sanctum.
If you want to print one of your own, you can find it on Thingiverse here:
Technomancer’s Sanctum Maker Coin
This one I printed (in two pieces) on my replacement 3D printer, which finally arrived today! Seems to work pretty well. The parts printed fine on the first attempt, and the center door pressfit solidly into the coin!
In other news:
Borderlands 3 came out last week, so I’ve been playing that over the weekend, and having a blast. I’m playing as Moze, so when the fecal matter hits the cooling unit I can jump into my mech and lay waste to my foes! Still… in the words of the greenskins… NEED MOAR DAKKA! I’m gonna have to see if I can fire more bullets per second. I’m playing a gunner, after all.
I have business cards now! I got tired of trying to find a scrap of paper to write down the web address for my blog when I get questions about my hobbies, so I’m now carrying some business cards wherever I go. It should make it much easier to get the word out.
