Card Case Customizer by TheNewHobbyist Apr 1, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

v1.3 Update: ADDED the ability to use other Customizer compatible fonts.

In an effort to better learn OpenSCAD I thought I'd attempt to turn all the 3D printed items I carry with me daily into Customizer models.

I've been using the card case designed by phooky since May 2011 and it still looks and works great. Since I had an existing good design to base my Customizer model off of I thought I'd add a little something extra.

Customizer functions on this model are as follows:

Number of cards Type of cards (business and collectable) Optional embossed image Optional embossed text label

Thanks to phooky, Benjamin, and SirGronk for inspiration.

Change Log:

v1.0 Initial Release

v1.1 Update: ADDED second line of text per laird's request. CHANGED the location of the box lid, this should make it easier see where text and images are positioned.

v1.2 Update: CHANGED the scale of the lid by 1.02. Should provide a better fit.

v1.3 Update: ADDED the ability to use other Customizer compatible fonts.

The lid is press fit on. Friction keeps it on.
How does the top stay on?? I don't see a clasping mechanism
HI, printing one now but i was having trouble with stencil factory, it doesnt seem to support knockouts, like holes within a shape. neat though.

Very nice.

A request? Could you add support for two lines of text? That is, one above the graphic and one below.
Good idea, I'll include that in v1.1

I'll also be moving the lid out of the way so you can see what you're doing when placing text and images.
Cool, thanks!
