This is something I have been wishing to show since August …
Keith Rucker contacted me and asked if we could come up with a 3D-Printed logo for Adam Booth as a Thank You gift to cast out of Brass in his metal forge
Keith and Adam are very talented metalworkers and both have YouTube Channels with well over 10,000 subscribers each …
ADAM BOOTH‘s YouTube Channel:
KEITH RUCKER‘s YouTube Channel:
Keith suggested we incorporate a micrometer into a Logo Design based off Adam’s YouTube ‘ABOM79’ name
Once the Design was finished using SolidWorks CAD Software ~ I then used a 3D-Printer to create an ABS plastic Sand Mold Pattern for the Brass Casting

The Logo took about 2 hours to 3D-Print but the nice thing about 3D-Printers is one can just press the ‘print’ button and walk away to work on something else and come back later when it is finished. You don’t have to watch it or worry about it … Very nice dual use of time!!
The 3D-Printer doesn’t create any smell so it can be used inside the house … I keep mine in the spare bedroom and commonly will start a 3D-Print and go to bed and wake up in the morning and it is finished.
In the future Keith will be uploading a video of the Brass Pour making Adam’s Logo… but for now here is a link to some other Brass items Keith Rucker made from some 3D-Printed Sand Mold Patterns we designed together

Also had some fun making a few Renderings and Quick Videos of Adam’s Logo
Once the design is finished in SolidWorks many different rendering views can be made using different materials, textures, and appearances …
Below is a SolidWorks CAD Rendered Video of ABOM79 Logo:
Adam was nice enough to make a video showing Keith dropping the Brass Logo off at his shop … It was a lot of fun to see his reaction
Thanks for the Video Adam … and Well Done Keith!!
Ended up having some Brass Lapel Pins made using the ABOM79 Logo …
Was owed a favor by a company, so had 100 Brass Workshop Apron Pins made for Adam Booth for him to share with his ABOM79 YouTube Viewers.
Created a few SOLIDWORKS CAD photo-realistic renderings for Adam to choose from as to the color he wanted …
After Adam chose a design then had the company prepare it for fabrication …
It is amazing they can shrink the Logo down to the size of a Brass Pin.
About two weeks later the ABOM79 Brass Pins were done in Vegas, and I mailed them down to Adam Booth in Florida … Of course, first I took one out to put on my Workshop leather apron.
The Logo Design was a fun project to do with Keith as a gift for Adam.
