There's nothing like housing your modern technology in the facade of old technology. This is a small laser cut box that can hold up to 8 full-sized SD flash cards. There is a small living spring that will hold the lid shut when it's bouncing around in your bag. You can open the box from either side.

With Christmas coming up, this would make great easy to make gift. I know I'll be making a set of them.

This holder is the second generation of a SD card box, the original version was not nearly as much fun.

Update 05/14/2016 - It's been almost been 5 years since I posted this, and have uploaded the latest version of my cut files. Thanks everyone for your interest.

Even though this creation is a few years old, I hope there's some response to my question. I'd like to enlarge the overall construction, but retain the notch size and spacing. I'm no wizard when it comes to using SolidWorks, although it's great that it's included in the files. Is there a simple method to enlarge the overall layout, to accommodate standard gift cards and keep the 3mm material thickness?

One additional note is that the cuts are set up for 3mm thick material.

Just cut one of these out and the result isn't quite the same as the image - the photo shows the cogs on the insert and the extrusion with four holes on the casing, but they aren't in the dxf or eps files. Could you upload a version with those? :)


I was excited to cut this until I noticed that the files were missing those elements.

Not sure how this version of my files got uploaded, but I went through my files from 2011 and found the ones that look like the photo.

Have Fun!

Amazing, thanks 4volt!

This deserves at least 1000 Internet Points!
