  • K2_MakerChip_v1-Back.stl - Base Circle
  • K2_MakerChip_v1-Decoration_3mm.stl - Chip Decoration
  • K2_MakerChip_v2-Decoration_3mm.stl - Chip Decoration
  • K2_MakerChip_v3-Decoration_3mm.stl  - Chip Decoration
  • K2_MakerChip_v4-Decoration_3mm.stl  - Chip Decoration
  • K2_MakerChip_v5-Decoration_3mm.stl - Chip Decoration
  • Sample_MakerChip-BambuStudio.3mf - Sample Bambu Studio

Instructions:

  1. Open Bambu Studio or Orca Slicer
  2. Drag/Drop the Base Circle into slicer - K2_MakerChip_v1-Back.stl.
  3. Add the version of Chip Decoration you want to use v1 - v3.
  4. Center the Chip decoration
  5. Switch to Objects view (In the Process dialog box in the slicer - Photo Included)
  6. Select objects, right click and Assemble.
  7. Slice to check your MakerChip!

Adding your own logo:

  1. Create your logo as STL, Logo z-height only need to be 0.6mm to 0.8mm.
  2. Size your logo to fit your Maker Chip. You can scale, but be sure to maintain your .8mm height.
  3. In the Objects view, select your logo and select the assembly and combine.
  4. Slice to verify you completed this correctly, and Print!

Adding your own QR Code:

  1. I've had great success using: https://genqrcode.com/generator/stl to create QRCodes.
  2. Create your QR code as STL, QR-Code z-height only need to be 0.6mm to 0.8mm.
  3. Size your logo to fit your Maker Chip. You can scale, but be sure to maintain your .8mm height.
  4. In the Objects view, select your QR-Code and select the assembly and combine.
  5. Now use the MOVE option in slicer to move the QR code up until its just peaks through the top layer.
  6. Slice to verify you completed this correctly, and Print!

Tinkered with this a lot last night until I got it to work. Here's what to do if you are struggling. Do NOT start a raw file. Open the example file to edit it. I used Orca. Convert your svg's to stl's however you prefer. Under the objects tab on the left, right click the logo object and click "replace with STL" and then select your logo. Move it into place. Do the same with the QR code or whatever you want to put in it's place. Do not mess with layer height presets. Colors are fair game.

The reviews only allow for 500 characters, so here's some additional details. There are some settings used that are allowing this print to render all the details successfully in the slicer and I believe they are tied to the edits in the presets. I didn't have the patience to go digging and find the ones that are making the magic happen, but using the 3MF file already provided bypasses the need for that. I was even able to replace the decoration file with another provided, scale it appropriately, and get it to slice well with the details. You may want to turn on detect thin walls and ironing to get the best looking coins. My first print without ironing turned out pretty rough on top. Don't let any of this push you away from trying this model out. It's great and a LOT easier just editing the example file. Also, if anyone could point me to a good program for converting QR code images to SVG's, I'd greatly appreciate it. Inkscape converts it well enough to render correctly inside of inkscape, but I end up getting geometry errors in tinkercad, bambu studio, orca, and blender from these svg files. My logo used in the coin is an inkscape svg and renders just fine. Honestly this is what I spent about half the time messing with all of this on.

If you'd rather skip the SVG to STL, you can use qr2stl, which directly creates an stl for the qr.

Yeah on some of the runs. I kinda like the rough texture these are the tokens to get into a speak easy party I'm running. Of course the name of the speak easy is "The Need"

not sure what im doing wrong, but when i try to do the chip with my logo and a qr on the other side, one side of the token gets basically eaten and the other side has the decoration design and either my qr code or my logo but i cant get it to do both or have the decoration on both sides.

Hopefully I can help. Place chip and one graphic on plate, graphic upside down- center each object, right click and select all - right click on chip and assemble. Now slice to be sure your graphic is where you want it, only need to print 2 layers, so should only be about .04 thick. If all is well, flip the chip over so your graphic is on top, bring your 2nd graphic to plate and flip it over like the first one. Follow same actions (center chip & graphic, then select all and assemble). Manipulate your plate so you can visually verify the graphics are where you want them to be, now slice and check it out before printing. i haven’t printed this chip, so may not work out if there is a lip….or you may need to increase the thickness of graphics to depth of lip plus .04. I’ve printed over 100 coins using this method and it works well; and fidget coins.

weird yeah I dunno what I’m doing wrong then lol. so I center graphic, then center chip. select both and assemble, then slice no graphic, so then I up the z of the graphic and repeat til it shows up on the chip which is about 1. ok cool go that, flip the coin over move second graphic to center, select that and coin again and assemble aaaaaand nothing I get no graphic even going up to 2.5

I find the trick is after you import your SVG make sure height is 3.5, then after you assemble, use the process objects and change the colors of the objects each to the colors you want.
