Big sign

We needed to put a sign outside to advertise Shelley's garden open days. Sunday 19 May and Sunday 16 June 2019.

She's letting people in to view the garden in order to raise money for charity. See the entry in the National Open Garden Scheme.


As part of the supplied stationery, we have some paper posters however, these are not going to survive the weather for very long. I put up a temporary solution in a plastic sleeve but to look nicer and to last a bit longer, we need something a little different.





Something 3D printed.


The 3D printer I have is an Ultimaker 2+. Its build area is 220mm x 220mm. That is not large enough for the sign I had in mind. I have, therefore, designed it in multiple parts.





I may have got carried away.




In addition to the 3D printed elements, I've made the supporting structure.





Now we just need people to come on the days.
