A name plate, sweeping around in a circle. Customize it to show your name or text (Press "Open in Customizer" above or install OpenSCAD on your own computer). This version has 2 lines on top of each other, as by request of schoonke.
You can customize:
- NEW: You can add a big heart ♥, smiley ☺ or other special characters (†←→↑↓◄►♪♫☼♀♂♦♠♣∞) now to the left or right of the text!
- NEW: "HiddenText" and "HiddenTextSize" will generate text on the underside of the base. Use it for notes, dates, etc.
- The roundness: Set "faces_segment=2" to have a quick preview in the customizer on this webpage. Once all is OK, set "faces_segment=8" to make the final render.
- The shown text.
- The number of text lines: You can leave "textstring1" empty, and it will be only one line.
- The font. Nice is e.g.: "Orbitron", "Bangers" or "Luckiest Guy". NEW: You can set all three fonts (top line, bottom line and under-base-text separately). By default, all are same as "fontname1".
- Each lines font size individually.
- The angle where the text is cut (lower angle will make printing easier)
- The distance between the lines
- The type of base (round or minimal)
- Wether you want the text up (to put it onto a table, etc) or upside-down (e.g. to stick it on a wall)
If anybody has a picture of an actual print, please publish it via the "post a make" button. - I am curious to see your uses in the wild.

By the way, the quote "Whatever it is, I'm against it." is from a song by Groucho Marx in the movie 'Horse Feathers'.
You can print it without any support, as long as you leave the cut-angle below 90 degrees.
If you want to use OpenSCAD on your own computer to customize (good idea!), make sure you install first the respective fonts on your system. All are available from google, e.g. for "Bangers" here: https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Bangers
Then set the fontname
in the .scad file.
