This things intend is to keep board game cards in order during play and to store them safely the rest of the time.

The holder can be completely customized to fit stacks of cards of any dimension. Multiple holders can be stacked safely by using the build in rails.


To customize this thing to your needs please use the "open in customizer" button on this page or OpenSCAD. The tab "primary parameters" should contain all parameters needed.

Due to the sliding parts the default parameters might not be sufficient on some printers. Should printed holders or lids fit too tightly try increasing the "fudge factor" parameter, should they fit too loose try decreasing it. Should this not solve the problem try manipulating specific settings in the "secondary parameters" tab. Perfectly printed holders / lids should slide without much resistance into each other and snap in when almost fully inserted.

I'm printing on an Ultimaker and use Cura with the following parameters. These parameters haven't been optimized for this thing, e.g. faster speeds will probably just work as well.

  • wall thickness: 0.4
  • layer height: 0.2
  • bottom/top thickness: 0.6
  • print speed: 50mm/s
  • bridge speed: 50%

Nice card holder! I've created a website to gather all board game improvements to inspire and showcase. Would you be interested in adding it to the Board Game Level Up site? Or I could help you with it, but still giving you the credit. www.boardgamelevelup.com


I love this! It would be perfect to store all of the different location cards for Arkham Horror

Great that you like it! If you make one please tell me how it works out for you because printing this isn't always easy (and maybe make some "i made one" pictures ;))
