I needed a card deck box for a non standard size deck of cards (mini). As i could not find one in the needed size i made this customizable piece.
Just enter the dimension of your card deck and enjoy!
Optionally you can increase the Number of compartments to create a box for multiple identical card stacks.
You can create round cutouts at the top/bottom sides and in the center or on both sides of the box.
You can as well choose if you want the edges to be rounded.
Any standard material should be fine and on a well tuned machine supports are not required..
It works good to add 0.5-1mm to account for shrinkage.
For a Standard size Deck i used the deck Dimensions 89 x 63.5 x 17
For a Bicycle Mini Deck i used the deck Dimensions 59.5 x 43 x 17

All the STLs are just shared as examples. i you need one, just use the customizer with your own dimensions.
And if you like it, pls share your makes. I would love to see what it is being used for!
If you like this thing, have as aswell a look at: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3239814
everything that this thing can do can be done as well with the newer thing.
But it has a lot more options and can be used for more things.
If you like it simple, use this one as it has less options that work great for a card deck box.
if you like more options and full flexibility, check the other one as well.
Thingiverse customizer can be painfully slow....
Often it barely usable, especially in "peak hours"
If you want to use it locally on your PC you can download the .scad file and use the "customizer" in openscad.
This will require the latest version of openscad for your operating systems.
after that in the View Menu you have an option "Hide Customizer" which you have to uncheck
- under View, untick the "hide customizer" options
- you might have to reload the scad file in order to see the parameters.
- to have all fonts available check the "Install google webfonts to your local PC" section
- have fun and remember to leave a like and to share your makes!
In case you are using the scad file on your local PC you can install the Google WebFonts to your openscad\fonts folder to have the full list of fonts available.
You can download the full set of font from here: https://github.com/google/fonts/
Then copy everything you find in the included "ofl" folder to you \openscad\fonts folder (e.g.C:\Program Files\OpenSCAD\fonts on my PC)
i ended up having e.g. a folder C:\Program Files\OpenSCAD\fonts\exo containing the .ttf files needed.
then restart openscad and reopen the scad file. openscad will rebuild it's font file automatically and it should work
