Update 08/15-2018 - This design will no longer be reiterated (unless minor flaws found) as I will be starting another project and maybe a v2 in the near future.
Update 07/31/2018 - Updated Lever for better card actuation
Update 07/26/2018 - Some people have had trouble printing out the new external cash clips, for that reason I have added much simpler design features which makes for easier printing.
Update 07/25/2018 - I have now added lanyards in all body variants. Their files have _LANYARD at the end of it.
Update 07/25/2018 - I have added files for cash clips. "CASHBACK" has a clip on the back side of the wallet. "CASHFRONT" has the clip on the front side of the wallet. When printing it out, you may have to separate the top part of the clip from the body using a paint scraper (like a raft).
Update 07/24/2018 (Same day published) - I have tested the alternative pins and have updated the files PIN1 and PIN2.
(Made fine adjustments for a better fit.)
I'd suggest printing these at 0.1mm to avoid inaccuracy.
Please do note that this design is in its early stages and many revisions will be done to it in the future. Future plans include use of lanyard, better card actuation, more cards, external cash holder, and more!
Blade - Ultimate Minimalist Wallet
- Easy to print
- Holds 6 cards (5 with folded cash)
- Lever design which secures the cards but also makes fanning them out simple
- Super light and thin (around 8 mm)
- Chamfered and filleted edges
As much as I want, I cannot accept tips through thingiverse/paypal because of [insert dumb reason here]. If you would really like to support/donate to me you can send me a PM. Thank you.
0.2 for body, 0.2 for lever, 0.1 for pin
I strongly recommend using a raft alongside with a brim to maximize build plate adhesion.
Lever at least 80% infill
Body at least 20%
Pins at least 10%
- Soft foam (will be used to fine adjust card's movement)
- m3 nut and bolt (length must be at least 9-10 mm)
Alternatively, instead of using a nut and bolt, I have included a pin and receiver in the files.
Pins need high accuracy; sanding pin 2 may help.
I used these yummy Cheetos I always get in the mail
- Insert lever, line up with hole
- Screw nut and bolt through hole and lever
- Insert foam into areas using a stick (Pictured below)
Foam should not be too thick depending on how soft it is
Ideally, the cards should have some pressure on it, enough to get rid of play there may be. BUT not too tight that it will affect performance.
If you are using super soft squishy foam like I used, I highly recommend to squish it in firmly before putting inside the wallet. (doing this reduces break-in period which may be required)
*for those printing with the money clip, use a paint scraper to separate the top part of the clip from the main body if you find it stuck.
Main body should be printed upright
Lever has a flat bottom
optional pins should be printed with the heads of the pin on the bed
