Personalized, Parametric Gift Tag / Gift Card Holder by karmavore Dec 19, 2012

Description

Minimize your Christmas deadweight loss gift giving by thoughtlessly buying your nephew a prepaid Visa, or up the ante by buying him money that only works at one store. Then, wrap that turd of a gift in an extremely thoughtful, personalized keepsake gift card holder that they'll treasure until you leave the room. There's no better way to say, "despite this gift, I remain totally awesome" than with this jewel of a thing!

Sorry about the trouble. I've updated the "gift tag card holder.scad" file so that it will work again.

For reasonably sophisticated OpenScad users: The problem occurred when an update to the OpenScad changed the meaning of the parameters to the "scale" function. "scale([2 2 0])" used to mean "scale x and y by 2 and ignore the z dimension" but now it means "scale x and y by 2 and z into nothingness." I like the new definition, but it took me a while to figure out when my stuff broke.

This drove me nuts trying to change the name in OpenSCAD. No matter what I do, after I expport the STL, the simply doesn't show up on Cura. Even if I export the default file without making changes, it should show Henry, but again it shows nothing.

Instructions

First, unzip fnt-LeagueGothic.zip into a fnt-LeagueGothic directory.

Using the "gift tag card holder.scad" file, modify your text to provide your customized name and its location. Or, use one of the examples provided in the stl files and just start calling your friends either Henry or Ian. What do I care?
