Anyone come across a good STL for a miniature coffee mug or cup?

 

I’m happy to pay for the right one.

 

It doesn’t need to be life-sized as I plan on using it as a token for a 24 hour Blood Bowl tournament I’m running in a couple of months.

Is there a way to see how many print jobs your printer has completed? I’d be curious to know how many mine has run.

 

I'm not sure but it would be a nice feature. At least a hours used meter withdrawal be nice.

Haven't seen one but I can probably knock something simple together for you if you'd like.

If you're running Klipper, it's under the history tab.  No idea where it would be if you're running Marlin or RepRap though.

In a recent podcast, I heard Ronnie Renton say that they were considering putting out STLs for conversion bits or maybe extra poses of some of their models.  Also, Wargames Atlantic seem to be moving in the direction of making conversion bits for their plastic kits available as STLs.  Seems like an interesting development.

Yeah, even an hours used would allow me to ballpark how many prints I’ve done.

I have no idea what any of those things are. I’m assuming they relate to FDM printers? I only have a Mars 3 resin printer at the moment.

If you could, that would be awesome.

 

I’m just after something simple like these:

Threw it up on my Thingiverse. I'd use Printables but I don't know where that falls on ecommerce restrictions....

Did my best to maintain some thicker walls so it prints well small. I scaled them really small but they should get bigger if you need, let me know if you need any tweaks, I'm trying to work on getting better with OpenSCAD so this is good practice.

That’s awesome! Truly above and beyond, thank you so much.

I had been trying to think up a better way to inventory my many many minis than a simple spreadsheet, and I think I may have hit on a good way using a plugin for wordpress.  I got the idea on Thursday, figured out how to do it on Friday, and made my test site this morning.  Which is to say it's not hard to do.  If there is any interest I could make a tutorial for y'all to try out yourselves.  If not, that will save me some typing.
