I would like to 3D print a 400% version of the IBM model M badge for my car. I have been looking around for it, but can't find it. I'm almost certain there's a model somewhere. Thanks.

Hi,

I think this thread has a DXF file of the oval badge.

I can do this later when at right computer but with autodesk you should be able able to pull up all the text

Thanks! I was able to open the file and convert it, but I couldn't find the actual dimensions of the badge. It is also a uncertain whether it is correct, since the author wasn't sure it fit.

Is this going to go on the front/back of your car where the auto badge is? If so, that's hilarious and awesome!

Not oval but maybe you or someone could use a badge like this:

Hi, I know thingiverse is not great but I tried to make this from that dxf

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4204146

preview doesnt work, but if you download it from the "thing file" , it shows up in the windows 3d file viewer

Hi,

I took the DXF model from the link as made by user "ShishHappens"

I then put the oval dxf file into fusion360 from autodesk. I am not very good at 3d modelling. I sort of pulled up the text 2mm, and then the oval part 1mm. Then I exported it as an STL and a OBJ file.
