    Here's a quick little project with Tinkercad and a 3D printer - a letterpress block for custom hand-printed Valentine's Day cards!

    Reversing the Tinkercad logo was a bit tricky, but as with most things in Tinkercad, figuring out how to model with vector objects is half the fun.  It's pretty amazing what you can do with the Hole function if you think about it as a subtractive element.

    This block was printed on an Objet Connex, using a Vero Clear for the base and Tango Black for the stamp part,  but I'm trying some on a Makerbot using flexible filament.
