This is an optimized version of our previous calling card. It is thinner and easier to assemble (tighter tollernaces on holes)


We're using a .35mm nozzle
Some assembly required. We add a dab of glue to the planets and pins along with a dab of glue on the ring gear to hold to the card.

You guys asked for .dxf files and a card without letters on it.
I've uploaded them now.
Happy Printing!

This extension connects Thingiverse with Makeprintable, a cloud-based mesh repair service that analyzes, validates and repairs most common mesh errors that can occur when preparing a 3D design file...

Any chance of also posting DXF files for the poor Laser Cutters out there? thx

P.S. You could do like Emmet and put your initials somewhere.

Very cool!
Can't really ask you to learn OpenSCAD, when I have yet to do that myself. How about a blank version of the STL files?

I'd love to do that..... I do all of my modeling in Solidworks... Not sure how to make it changeable. I do want it on there for a bit of selfless promotion but it would be great to have it changeable for you... Can you suggest a file format to save it?

Would love to see a parametric version of this that allows you to change the writing. Or was your intent not to let the design be used for other cards. If so not a problem just curious.
