Chroma Mug not for sale? Guess I'll make something myself.

    So, after seeing the chroma mug/coaster set and realizing I'd never be able to get my hands on one (or two), I figured my next best option was just to make my own Razer themed coaster. I have a full CNC shop, so it was pretty easy for me to setup and run after hours. Took me about an hour to model and an hour to program, then it was a 2 hour mill cycle. It's a cool little one-off that will keep my desk ring-free for years to come.

    I'll have it anodized black with my next batch of production parts.

    Woah! That looks really cool! They may put the Choma mugs out on the ZSilver system, But it will most likely be way to expensive to use just cortex and arena to get, And you will most likely need to buy stuff with ZGold to get the mug.

    Very nice! CNC is something I wish I'd gotten into, I did a lot of CAD and design classes in school, but lost most of that information over the years.

    Obviously you have a whole shop, and probably have a ridiculously large amount of money invested in your setup. I'm just wondering if you could suggest something to get amateurs and enthusiasts going with a small garage type setup? Or would you recommend staying away from working with metal unless you've got deep pockets? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    My first CNC machine was a conversion of an SX2 mini mill. I spent about 6 months on that learning the basics without breaking the bank too much, and despite being very limited on table size and speed, it got the job done. If you've got a bit more money, tormach makes some pretty good stuff for beginners and small shops. The nice thing about those is they are turnkey solutions. No converting required.




    Glad everyone seems to like how it turned out as much as I do. Thanks everyone.

    Wow that is awesome! I'm a drafter and use Solidworks, I wish my company used a CNC or had a 3D printer so I could make some stuff like that. That's impressive that it only took you about an hour to model especially with importing the logo. Really smooth surface finish on it too!:smile_: Also nice warning stickers, not sure if those are OSHA approved... lol

    If it was for me, I would have asked if I can get one too ;)

    Since this isn't the only request I've gotten, I may as well address it here.

    I can't just produce and sell these to fans of Razer because it's their IP. It was a fun little one off for myself, but unless I got express written permission from Razer, I can't produce these and sell them.

    Best get working on that trade agreement my friend, this could be your big shot if you started producing these in mass amounts

    I agree, looks like it would go nicely on my desk

    While I appreciate the kind words, I don't really feel the need to pester Razer about potentially producing more of these. This thread was shared on twitter, so someone at the company knows I made this. If they approached me, I'd be more than happy to make any size batch of these, but I haven't even sent this one for anodizing yet because it's currently a side project. I also don't feel that what I've done here is unique enough that Razer would even need to involve me in the process of making something similar. I mean, maybe it seems simple to me because I do this kind of thing on a daily basis, but still.

    Really, my only intention with posting this was to show that I bleed green. If any sort of production agreement was reached, I'd obviously be ecstatic, but in no way did I expect such a thing to happen.

    That is awesome! I was thinking of designing one and printing it with carbon filled filament for the look, but a CNC is so much more authentic, keep us updated with the anodized version!
