    Bored and my 3D printer is dusty so I’d figure print a couple VFR keychains... so should I inset or raise the VFR in the middle... sure I can make the choice myself just bored and thought I see what others think....I’m thinking raised!

    Lowered near the bottom that straight edge....

    Center it between the fairing back edge and the front fairing edge.

    Print #1: Printed it last night turned out ok I except I didn’t load the file with the lowered VFR logo. So I’ll reprint tonight. But I think “VFR” should be inset and probably painted red or white to bring contrast because the VFR gets lost in the black and is hard to see.

    I understand—- I bought mine from my father who is moving and didn’t want to take it with him. So I got mine For $100. And man was I furious with him about selling his CNC router.... $500!!!!! $500!!!!! Did he offer it to me...nope!!!!! Man was I mad!!!!

    but #3 print I feel success. Words are wide enough so I added “700” to it. I’ll sand and paint tonight and put it to good use tomorrow weather permitting... the bike is 76mmX40mmX9mm, weight is 11g and took 90min to print. Used PLA filament on a cr10 printer
