love the design. will try 1.

So I am printing another one (several actually). We used it to display our cards at a convention last weekend and one of the other vendors stole it Saturday night (!! Really?? They left all our cards on the table at least!). Funny thing was, they then used it to display their own cards the next day... (and lied about where it came from, till a friend turned the holder over and it was obviously my print).

Sad thing is, we're friends with several other vendors and I was going to print them up some holders too... if they had just ask nicely they wouldn't have had to steal it.

It has worked well - left it in a hot trailer and it bent some (PLA) but a hot water bath and some pressing restored it. I did remix mine - I put a raised 10mm cylinder in the center (only about 5mm tall) to give me something to slide the cards against, so it looks more even when populated. I'll post and link back to this one sometime. (although someone else may have already done that, I see 2 derivatives)

As far as i can see, this cannot be printed....? the resulting file is vertical.

Hi, that's true the geometry described in the STL files are not in the ideal printing orientation. You printer software should be able to rotate the part in the right orientation, ideal for printing on your printer.

How did you get it to look so clear? 100% fill?

it's not filament, it's photo-polymerising resin. This part was produced with an Objet (Stratasys) printer.
