Weird. Just tried slicing the STL with Slic3r and it trips up on the Quantum text on some settings, but slices it just fine on others.
Skeinforge dealt with it just fine.

Sadly, I lack the ability to make a 3D version of mine. The first post missed my logo for the quantum:

Any feedback on the logos?

It's pretty neat, although maybe a bit too atomy :)
But don't mind me, i'm a sucker for minimalism.

A few attempts at putting together a product badge:

I printed a few of the STLs this weekend, but my laptop was down until today (forgot to bring power supply home).

Hurm. Looks like i should increase the distance between the dome and the dash and make the text fatter/lower.

I wasted a fair amount of time with netfab trying to do the same thing. I don't have a photo, but 1mm tall black letters on a white substrate looked pretty good.

How about tipping the dash a little so that the part towards the center of the dome is lower than its outside end?

Tipped the dash, increased the gap between the dome and the dash and lowered the text to 1mm.

Edit: Oh, and beefed up the eyelet a bit too.

I've been thinking a bit more about the logo, and wondered if it would be better to have a single logo for the ORD Bot. The reason being that there will be only a few quantums, a lot more hadrons, and probably also many variants. So I brainstormed a bit about this logo with the following keywords:

reprap
open source
xyz robot
makerslide
FDM printer
arduino-based
precision
expandable
motion

This initially led to the following logo variants,inspired by the xyz directions and colors and reprap and arduino logo:

While simplifying the logo, using only the colors and the teardrops, I rearranged these shapes to give circular motion to the logo, which was one of the first arguments for the earlier logo designs:

And two more variants of the logo, the first opening up the shape emphasizing the aspect of open source, and the second emphasizing the FDM aspect.

I am interested in your thoughts about these.

Printed

I tried printing @JeremyBP's STL file.

I worked pretty well. The print suffers from the tower effect a little where the point at the end got too hot from so much time in one spot.

This is about 2 in across. I printed it at 180 mm/s
