This historic Route 66 sign / fridge magnet and ornament is fast and easy to print. It uses a 10mm x 3mm magnet that we purchased from Amazon in a pack of 100 for about $10. The magnet can be glued inside the hole in the back with super glue or Goop that we purchased at Home Depot. We also designed a hole through the top of the sign so you can use fishing line, thread, string or a wire ornament hook to hang on your Christmas tree or wall. Enjoy and Merry Christmas from the IEC3dDesignWorks team.
We use Elmers glue stick on blue tape and then add a touch of hairspray and mix the slurry together until white and tacky (not longer wet and slippery). This reduces any warping and curling on the edges of medium to large size base models, or on prints longer than 150 mm. Change the filament to the color of your choice after you see the horizontal line start printing above the 66 and the first layer of the word "ROUTE" is printed. Be careful in post-processing not to be too rough cleaning any strings around the letters as they don't bond as strong due to cooling during the filament change. Happy printing from the IEC3dDesignWorks team.
