Door Sign

I wanted to make a sign for my drone laboratory.  I made it about as large as I could fit on my printer in a single piece, 220 mm wide.  I sketched a rectangle in 123D Design and used the text tool to add the text.  I made the base 3 mm thick and the letters 4.5 mm thick.  I recessed the letters into the base 1.5 mm and used the subtract function to create recesses for the letters in the base.  Then I printed the two parts in different colors.

The letters were a perfect snap fit in the base.  They probably didn't even need any glue but I used some just in case.  Only the "e" needed some slight clean up on the first layer to fit.
