I needed to create a new meeple to replace the one we lost.
First, take a picture of the meeple.
Then, using gimp, get the black and white bitmap of the surface to use.
Then, using inkscape, you can convert that image to a svg path.
Then, simply import this svg into blender.
Scale the model so that it matches the original one. In our case, the meeple appears to have:
- a width of 2cm
- and a height of 0.5cm
You must convert the curve to a mesh so that it will be extruded without errors.
Finally, you get the following blender file:
And you can convert it to the following stl file, ready to be put in cura to
Now, our kid goats family have a new member.
