This is a simple door stopper that you can customize. Create 3D business cards that are useful and won\'t be lost ...

Door stopper V1 comes in two versions:

  • Simple: You can add text on top
  • Normal: You also can add text underneath

Door stopper V2 is a bit smaller and has a cut off top

These models were made with OpenScad ( http://openscad.org )and you also can customize the *.scad files.


Printing will be difficult with ABS since it will warp. If you print with a RapMan or similar, make sure to make a fat and hot raft. PLA printing on the other hand is easy (see the blue example picture), but it won't be as solid. More tips are inside the *.scad files.


Create 3D letters with a tool like Sketchup or Netfabb ( http://www.netfabb.com/ ) . Then merge with a tool like Meshlab ( http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/ ) or OpenScad. Netfabb pro (commercial) is the easiest solution.


  • Text underneath should be 3mm high with Z = 0
  • Text on top for door-stopper-2.stl: Z = 7.5

Might I suggest using my OpenSCAD bitmap fonts module to customize the text? :) http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2054http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

OpenSCAD Bitmap Fonts Module

Wow super ! Didn't know about this.

Integrated this with http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2106 , a project that is more important for me :)

Doblo factory - OpenScad modules for building DUPLO structures and bricks

Both of these thrown a 404, and it doesn't seem like the openscad versions have any text.

Hi, OpenScad does have text. E.g. see https://edutechwiki.unige.ch/en/Doblo_factory#Writing_text

This module doesn't make sense anymore :)
I also will fix the link above.
