VPI Logo

A good friend of mine wanted a 3D logo to go with his VPI turntable.

I designed and 3D printed one.


I used paint.net to make the bitmap logo very distinct, just black and white, then Inkscape's trace bitmap tool to convert it to a vector graphic. Saved as an SVG file and then imported in to Fusion 360.

From there it needed a little bit of tidying up to form a closed outline and then simply extruded to the thickness I wanted.



To be able to 3D print I moved the dot over the 'i' so it touched the stroke. I also added a square peg at the bottom to insert in to a stand which I have made out of timber.
