I was stuck on my Zen this weekend because I accidentally ordered the wrong filament, so I kind of wandered off to other things to do. On a whim I uploaded some logos/funny stuff to spreadshirt.com Today I got a mug in the mail (probably the only one that will ever get ordered, and I’m fine with that), and I got thinking… A nice T1 Engineering mug with the new logo on it would be pretty cool. Or funnys like “My other CNC is Mostly Printed too”. It doesn’t cost anything to put some stuff up there. It’s unlikely that anyone other that the company will be getting rich on this. But I think some of us MPCNC/Lowrider/Zen/Vicious1 fans/superfans would enjoy owning and displaying a little swag.
I’ll take a T1 Engineering mug with the logo and web address. Sound interesting to anybody else?
Ryan’s pretty busy, maybe we can submit artwork to him for his approval?
What do you think? Get a souvineer before Ryan has staff to answer his email?

I need to look at that, I have had a few sample shirts made none I was super excited about yet.
I have some I wanted with some sort of drawing, maybe a cad sketch of part of the machine, “Robots do my dirty work”, or “I built a robot to do my dirty work” , maybe? I just got the new biz cards in the mail, so I have been messing with a few things the usual 3D printed drink coasters, stickers…
But I am no good at that stuff, took pretty much 2 years to get biz cards.
I wouldn’t mind seeing some cool swag.September 13, 2017 at 6:14 pm #43786
What about a patent-like drawing of one of the parts or assemblies?
Something like this (but with the center assembly or something instead of a lego):September 13, 2017 at 6:15 pm #43787
Don’t you mean V(vicious)1? I am rocking the new logo on my comp book cover for school, that’s about it. Bout time I start seeing something new other than the standards like Hydroflask, Supreme, Adidas, Nike, Thrasher, etc.
I like the idea of some joke ones, maybe about an obvious error or failure we all get.
If for some reason I am ever so bored that I will die, the last thing I would do is make the worlds most massive MPCNC, maybe 6ft in every direction just to see how terrible it would be. All it would cost is some conduit
Maybe I need my own business’ logo swag….not yet.
Where is the merch store? Forget important R @ D it’s really about the merch!
An exploded view or technical drawing of the MPCNC gantry would be cool.September 13, 2017 at 6:15 pm #43788
I was thinking it would be cool to do something like that with a marker in the Low Rider, BTW. I think that would be cool too.September 13, 2017 at 6:18 pm #43790September 13, 2017 at 6:22 pm #43795
Those are SMOOTH. Dang it, now I have the urge to cut out an aluminum version. Is there a DXF somewhere? or PNG
Maybe a couple stickers here and there, I would put some on my rc car for sure.September 13, 2017 at 6:23 pm #43796
Seeing that while eating breakfast is going to brainwash you.September 13, 2017 at 6:24 pm #43797September 13, 2017 at 6:27 pm #43798
Had to try out dual process so I printed the coaster…haven’t used it as a coaster yet.
Had to make a table because I have only had an outside table…haven’t eaten at it yet.
Had to get business cards…haven’t had a chance to give one out yet.
I like to make shi…stuff, the follow up is horrible with me.September 13, 2017 at 6:29 pm #43799
I love the logo tri-sided thing, but still needs text. So if anyone does have any ideas I am open, if not I think I will end up with whats on my cards.September 13, 2017 at 6:35 pm #43800
Wow, love that business card!
Duh, V1, Where the heck did that T come from. Working from failing memoriSeptember 13, 2017 at 6:38 pm #43801
I would say list the machines you designed, but there is 4, not to mention a couple you might have locked away where you keep your secret 11 herbs and spices.September 13, 2017 at 6:39 pm #43802
Thanks! I do as well but it was stupid expensive…although I would do it again in a heartbeat, perfect .5mm touch plate as well.
That shop seems cool I am ordering a hat right now. Cool find Mark.September 13, 2017 at 6:51 pm #43804September 13, 2017 at 6:55 pm #43805
Aww hell yeah, I don’t have a kid but if I did you better bet this is what he/she would be wearing.

This is ridiculous I am going to go broke. This is the easiest custom shop yet.
So far I have a hat on the way, still looking. Anyone can go in and change the color and size of the logo…cool. I have it set to mark things up $1, so it isn’t doing much but letting me have more logos…September 13, 2017 at 7:03 pm #43809
Hmmm. That was fast. It has too much ink though, it will be really sweaty.September 13, 2017 at 7:05 pm #43810
That is pretty freakin’ easy:September 13, 2017 at 7:06 pm #43811
You can “edit” each design. Resize, and move it, change colors, add text. All I did was upload the SVG and it auto populated everything.September 13, 2017 at 7:30 pm #43813
Woohoo! Thanks! Watch for it in an upcoming video!September 15, 2017 at 12:29 pm #43911
I was thinking of cutting something in the way of a logo into my ZenXY tables, in the decorative spacer that fills in the edges under the glass… I also need to find an old lady to crochet Z1 doilies to put on them. 😉September 15, 2017 at 12:34 pm #43913
You mean matured to perfection….never get custom doilies calling them old ladies….jeez.
Bill you got a mention in Rebecca’s paper in case you didn’t see it! Thanks for being awesome!September 16, 2017 at 12:51 pm #43966September 22, 2017 at 3:28 am #44444
Unfortunately those high-profile hats always make me want to start talking seed hybrids.
SomeOldGuyStory – I used to help my step-dad haul hay once in a while when he had cattle. I thought it was so insane that I was working on a farm, I got myself the stupidest straw hat I could find!

HA, that is a sweet picture though.
The new hat is low profile and awesome, the logo is actually centered and the puff looks pretty good. But the logo by itself doesn’t look good to me so I need to get the name in there to get the logo off the seam as the center of the round spot is not the center of the logo so it perpetually looks “off”. Win for printful but now I need to actually finish the dam logo….I hate picking fonts.
The downside to printful is you need your own storefront. I can’t combine it with my current one or it would screw up the shipping as they ship direct and have there own rates (usually free)! If I open a new storefront for merch, I would love to have anyone in the community be able to have there own merch page how cool would that be?! I need to look into how that might be possible.

Nuthin wrong with a nice legible font. It’s V1 Engineering after all.September 25, 2017 at 6:18 am #44679
I use deja vu sans mono in all my editors, but it’s for legibility. #dvsmFanboy
