I present for your consideration the new 181 emblem with rare earth magnets.
Printed in 100 micron layers on a MarkForged Mark Two printer with their proprietary Onyx material and continues carbon fiber inlay.

I am kind of liking the pure Industrial look of the final print.

Now that I have made some upgrades to the original design I feel more inclined to sell some limited amount of these units. The new design will have the magnets embedded in the part so they will not come out now. I have also increased to amount of magnets and find the new design much better. The new design is so strong it held on the back of my car even after a big trip up and down the coast of California on I-5 at 85 miles an hour to Things West. If you want one please PM me with your address and I will put your name on a list and print some this month for any 181 folks in this Samba group. Cool
