    I was messing around with FreeCAD yesterday at the membership meeting and I found out that its pretty simple to import SVG files and get them to extrude to 3D parts which can be saved to an SLT, sliced and then 3d printed.

    Using InkScape, its really trivial to take some text (don’t care what it is) or even an image and make it into a vectorized versioned SVG.

    Here is a forum post that I found that basically goes through the whole process. Pretty simple!

    this should also be directly applicable when we get our cnc router/laser cutter/engraver up and running!
