I created some custom 3d printed/printable badges for Artemis. I am also in the middle of building a full size bridge.


Badges:

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1450246

  20170315_223910-1.jpg While printing I ran out of Black filament and now wish I had made them all in red, the weapons badge shows the contrast so much better than the others that I have often thought of painting these but an not sure about the colors I would use. I no longer work where I have unlimited 3d printer access so I was not able to print the fighter badge.

Bridge:

 It is designed to accommodate 6 people, with a little room to spare and be able to (if need be) be transported via large truck like a u haul. I Have the frame work set for the stations and the seating is partially done. once I get the stations roughed out I am planning to put the basic functionality together (wiring the power and Ethernet cables for the PCs and Switch etc). 


I'll be starting with basic Keyboard and mouse but plan to over time change out the mice for track pads and the keyboards for custom consoles. I have a rough lay out in mind and hope to be adding progress pics as I go, right now I'm trying to get the functionality done so I can have a playt test on April 1 and full gaming session on April 8th. 

 

If you like the badges feel free to print them, if you do can you please post a pic? 

I am also open to suggestions and ideas for the 3d prints or the bridge.

Basic concept for the bridge is to make it functional, make it fun, then enhance over time adding decoration and DMX as well as custom controls. I have so many toggle and illuminated switches waiting for me to assemble them it isn't funny.

Awesome. I am not sure if you saw the fighter badge I added a few months ago. I had someone (maybe you?) Message me on Thingiverse asking for one to be added.

I have some small ones for uniforms and some larger ones that u plan to put on the station. The idea is you grab a small one out of a hat and that's your station. This would only come up if people can't decide or two people want the same station.

I'd love to see them in use so if you have any pics feel free to share.

I had not seen that. Very cool! It was not me that contacted you, though if I had known you were still active, I may have [biggrin]

I had some very rough versions done of the badges made up awhile back, but we couldn't find a way to make them work with our uniforms.

Here is a picture of all of them so people can see how awesome they are. Very well done design work

Thanks, I admire your bridge work and great photos of the build process. I hope to get my bridge functional by April 1 and then be able to start doing the set dressing.

The idea behind the badges I put together was that I wanted something more like an icon that represented the different stations. I really like the patches but I wanted this to be completely separate but still recognizable.

Thanks for sharing the image of them, I thought that the thingiverse link would have shown the preview

So, I recently printed up a set of these badges with enough fighter badges for all the fighter stations we had available. Last night during our weekly game I threw them all into a hat and had people draw their stations. Worked really well and everyone had a great time trying out unfamiliar stations. 5/5 will utilization again

Drawing a badge from a hat is a great idea! And those are sweet looking badges.
