Shutter shades to ring in the new year with!

Customizer wouldn't work for this, so I just edited the SCAD code from drjames.

I printed in ABS with 20% infill. Prints pretty quick (< 2 hrs). Warping wasn't a problem with ABS juice on a borosilicate glass base.

Very nice. They printed out well. Thanks!

Awesome design!!! Thanks!

Cool design! What do you use to fasten the hinge together?

Safety pins are good for quick and dirty, but a little loop of wire also works fine.

Well, i had to Macgyver a nail from a thumbtack, it actually fit pretty well.

Very cool!

For some reason the Thingiverse Customizer has problems with only numbers in the text field... a workaround is to just surround the numbers with spaces (" 20 ", " 17 ") or (like you did) to run it locally in OpenSCAD.


I figured there was something funny with customizer on that, and any excuse to dive into OpenSCAD code is always worth doing :)

As a side note, I didn't have many of the fonts that were cited as examples in the code. In the newer version of OpenSCAD, 'Help -> Font List' will tell you what you have available. Might be worth a comment update! This one used 'Stencil' to make the zero print sensibly.

Yes, Stencil fonts work very well - good choice!
The fonts I used (apart from OpenSCAD ones) are from Google Fonts because Thingiverse Customizer supports them. (They have all of https://fonts.google.com/ available for use). You can also download them from there to use locally.

That totally makes sense - my fault for not having generated a customizer thing yet!

Thanks for the original design!

You're welcome! Have a happy new year :)
