@scottyarcy, I'll tag you in here as well, as you can discuss and design each of the two other tags remaining with these guys so that others will be able to see what the process entails.

Guys, start designing!

I'm having two designs made. One is pretty standard…

The other is more complex:

The complex one will test the ability to design a logo that's far, far too thin. @scottyarcy has already pointed out that he will need to thicken many parts, as I suspected he would. It'll be interesting to see how well the second image turns out given the difficulty it naturally presents.

The first, though, should look nice and is relatively straight-forward.

Photos of items made, they are both wall hanging items made out of steel. The height was 18" on the guy and the gal is 22" tall.

Opp's just realized the mini skirt was too short, had to replace it. Wrong pic, but good for laughs.......

Hey guys, 

Just made the PSU paw logo for Iacas. Photo attached

 

So whats going to happen with the NCB logo, is that I will have to make all the curved lines about the same thickness. There are 2 limitations, one is the 3D printer resolution but the other is that the smallest pen (that I know of) is an ultrafine sharpie. This also limits the size of detail

Hi, yep, pretty much expected that.

@Club Rat, you need to cut down on the complexity roughly tenfold! Man those are overly complex. Think about it… you've gotta fit a Sharpie in there and it has to fit on a golf ball.

yeah, I can probably only do the outline for @clubrat 

maybe some internal detail if there is enough room

plus, think about it, how much time do you really want to spend drawing all kinds of small details? :)

Here's a few other ideas. The golfer will make my Honey happy.

I've got a logo design for my St Lou Blues, but can not find the SD Card I saved it on....... Hate when that happens........

The only thing I could come up with so far is the star pattern from the dragon balls.

This way I'll at least feel clever about scattering balls all over the woods :-D

I'll think on it some more, but I'm planning to submit something final by the end of the day.

Something similar is why I was hesitant to take this on.  I currently use just dots on my balls - no words or letters or other symbols.  I couldn't figure out what I'd want, or how I'd judge it once I had it.  I like your DBZ Star Pattern idea.

Yes! Needs to be the four star ball, that's the lucky one.

Four star ball it is. That was Gohan's and he was my favorite DBZ character.

Haha yea, oh wait...what are you implying? :-D

Design idea submitted last night and @scottyarcy has already responded with a drawing which I approved. Quick response and excellent customer service.

    • Good for you, what course are you qualifying at?  Good luck.
    • Considering how many people he comes into contact with and how often he is flying, it is unfortunate but not a total surprise. You can catch Covid-19 again even with being vaccinated and previously infected. It just means that your infection is mild.
    • Or, he understands how it transfers, and he was only around his wife for two months. He didn't need to get tested… because in getting tested, maybe he would have gone out more than he did in isolating at home, perhaps? You are making a LOT of assumptions, as you often do, @Shorty. Cool it.
    • The Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 I wasn't a big fan of this course. It was beautiful and well-maintained, but I found parts of it to be a little contrived. It's definitely a target golf course and for someone like me who is wild off the tee, it took all the fun of strategizing out of it because the risks were just too high. I did like that there was variety in the course layout with a good mix of short/long, right/left, uphill/downhill holes. I'm not sure I'd make a trip out to this one again if I'm ever back in the area for golf, but it's less than 10 minutes away from a delicious French bakery with the best croissants I have ever had, so that bumps up the score a little  I'd go back just for the croissants. The Sandbox - 7.0 This little 17 hole par 3 course was just fun. It gave you different looks and a variety of options for play. I really liked it and tried a bunch of different things I normally wouldn't have on a regular course. A 7.0 is probably the most I'd give to a par 3 course, though. Lawsonia Links - 7.5 I really enjoyed this course. Overall I found the layout to be good. There were plenty of places to miss, but you still needed to hit good golf shots to play well. I liked the way the mounds and bunkers were designed to play with the shape of the holes visually. There were really only a couple of holes I didn't like - 13 in particular, even though I made par both times using completely different strategies. It's just bordering on too many blind shots for me, though. I'd definitely play this course again if I have the chance. Mammoth Dunes - 8.5 This course was spectacular to look at - absolutely visually stunning. The pictures don't do it justice because they fail to capture the scale of everything. The place is massive. I'll echo what the others have wrote above: it's a journey. You feel like you're not going out to play a round of golf, but rather that you're going on an adventure while hitting a golf ball on the way. I understand now how some other reviews I've read or seen describe a feeling of getting lost, or losing your bearings for a bit. I wasn't thinking about routing. I had no idea where the clubhouse was. I didn't really care about any of it because I was out in this beautiful landscape. The golf itself for me was just there. I would be perfectly happy spending an afternoon just walking the course without playing it. And that's a bit of a detriment, because at the end of the day, it is a golf course. As a golf course, I found it didn't really matter much how you played it as long as you hit decent shots. There was certainly an ideal way to play the course well, and I hit some awful shots and paid the price for them, but plenty of just okay shots I got away with because of the layout. In the end that's fine. I don't need every course I play to be a grueling test of my skills.  I'd make a return trip and play this course again. Sand Valley - 9.0 This one is a golf course first and a spectacular view second. Where Mammoth Dunes focuses on the adventure, Sand Valley focuses on the golf. It's still visually stunning, but just not quite on the grand scale that Mammoth Dunes is. And Sand Valley does not let you forget for even one second that you're out there to do one thing: to play golf. I don't remember having a single shot out there that didn't require my undivided attention. The course absolutely punished you for missing your spots. But the flip side of that coin is that it was extremely rewarding to hit good shots there. An example is #8 mentioned above - I don't think I have ever felt so pleased to hit a GW to 35' before in my life, and I might never again. The course is a challenge in the best way. It makes you want to rise up to face it. I want to go back and battle it again. I shot my best score of the week with an 87 at Lawsonia, but it's the 94 the second time playing Sand Valley that I'm most proud of. Like Mammoth Dunes above, I'd make a return trip specifically to play this course again. Bonus Stuff The facilities at Sand Valley Golf Resort were top notch. The prices at the pro shop were fair. The food and drinks were also reasonably priced and delicious. The food truck at The Sandbox had the best food in the whole complex, IMO. Lac La Belle I felt was fancy but overpriced. I bought a polo at the pro shop at Sand Valley, but a similar shirt at Lac La Belle was like 50% more expensive. The golf carts had beautiful leather seats, but I absolutely hate geo-mapping on the GPS systems. I don't know how many times it slowed me down to tell me not to drive in the fescue even though I was driving parallel to it 20 yards away. Lawsonia had an older clubhouse and it certainly had a quaint feeling to it. That's not a bad thing. I did not look to see the prices they were charging for their merchandise.
    • Every YouTube video should start with a 10- to 45-minute diagnosis to make sure the video you're about to watch applies to you. There are a LOT of reasons why someone hits a slice. YouTube videos do not start with a 45-minute "disclaimer" because nobody would get through it. They just want to stop slicing, but if the video shows a fix for something that the student doesn't do, the video is less than worthless — it may actually cause more damage. Don't watch YouTube videos unless they're just working on some fundamental things, or you're very confident that what they're going to show you actually applies to you.
