@west can you please provide the dimensions of the plaque to be affixed to the tool head top cover cap (or whatever we're calling it)?

west added a comment.Nov 5 2018, 9:49 AM

The overall dimensions are 16.5x95mm

Steven added a comment.Nov 5 2018, 9:55 AM

We need printable dimensions considering the holes that will be needed to fasten the plate. Please work with @jessica to determine printable dimensions.

For screw holes i would ho with 12mm x95

@jessica has samples ordered, and made mention that they are struggling to match the LulzBot Green color. Please leave any more feedback as you get it please @jessica.

The color code is Pantone 382C if that helps. we want it to be close and consistent if possible.

@jessica for the Lulzbot logo, they cant do blind pems? Also can they add hole positions for those drawings?

I have requested both. The pems might be a set back...

The pems would just be for the logo not the hot label

@west Do you know if the LULZBOT text was redrawn manually? The are some sharp corners in the letter forms that shouldn't be there.

The artwork on the above proof is wrong:

  • Requires a registered mark
  • The letter forms have been redrawn without rounded corners used in Outage Cut
  • The kerning (space between letters) is not consistent with our logo type

@mcoronado I dont know anything about the logo, i thought the supplier did that

@jessica Please send the attached file to the print vendor. Thank you.

There have been changes to the mounting points. This is what I received this morning. I have sent the brand guide to them from reference.

Ok, cool. Please send them the PDF I provided so they can use our exact logo art instead of recreating it from the style guide. Thx!

4th time... @mcoronado how does this look?

@jessica the hole location relative to the edge of the plate isnt called out on this. Any concern there?

DaniAO added a comment.Dec 4 2018, 1:02 PM

@mcoronado please let us know what you think on the art work. I am not sure I can tell the difference :)

@tutley per Jess these will be called out. Just trying to get the artwork approved first!

Thanks All!

@DaniAO @jessica The artwork looks good.

Is it at all possible to get the logo plaque to have 3.5mm dia holes? the reason being, with 2.5mm hole we can only use m2 screws and we only have those as socket heads. If we use a M3 screw then we could use a button head screw. I think it would look better. For the caution label. I think sticking with M2 is good because the inserts that would have to go into the blower shroud would be a lower profile than the M3 inserts and that would reduce interference with airflow. @mcoronado what is your opinion on a m2 socket head vs m3 button head for the logo?

@west good call on the m3 button heads. It'll look more finished.

These were ordered and should be in around the end of the month.

We got these in today and I will be bringing them over to Lago for review later this afternoon.

The LulzBot plaque looks good to me.

Same inquiry from T3841: I think it's been brought up before, but a building in a reverse bevel inset for plaques with an adhesive backing on the plaque would eliminate hardware all together. The face of the plaque would share a plane with the printed part. @tutley @west Do you remember why we thought this wouldn't work? Was it concerns with the adhesive on a printed part?

Unless we as a team feel it's worth exploring ways to eliminate hardware, I think we're good to go.

@jessica please proceed in ordering.

@mcoronado we haven't found off the shelf sheet adhesives that would work reliably on a 3D printed part. There are paste adhesives we could look into that would very likely work but those are generally a nightmare in production as they are hard to control and have waste and air quality concerns. I'm going to merge this in to move forward to get Betas started. We can open another ticket in Betas if needed but I think we should stick with the hardware.

This is now merged to master.
