Awesome Design - Very handy indeed. I open the file in OpenSCAD (2015.03-2) and the Advanced shapes (Circles) are not rendering. Any idea why?

Can you try to install an OpenSCAD development snapshot? These are way better, faster, etc, and some things are not even possible with the old version.

If you have any issues then, let me know!

Thanks a lot for the thing! Every filament gets a Marvin and y swatch now :)

I printed the box yesterday and wanted to go on now with the swatches. But I encountered the attached error with OpenSCAD. Can you have a look at it? It's something with the dot at r_corner.

What software did you use? Which Version?

If one slices at 0.2mm layer thickness, isn't the 1.5mm thick section inaccurate? Shouldn't it be either 1.4 or 1.6?

100% agreed. I changed it to 1.6 in version L
Nice catch!

Hey. This looks great. I just found this.

Curious though what settings you're printing this at.

.15 and 100 percent infill or something else?


I printed at .2mm and 20% infill.

Can you please add this information to the description?

Good idea - done.

Can you please say how many perimeter and solid layers you use? So we can use constant parameters.

Layer height .2mm
2 Perimeter2
5 Solid layers
20% infill (fill pattern grid, fill angle 45 degree)

and i put it into the description

Perfect! Thank you :-)

Thanks for the idea

¡Bienvenido! Si imprime algo, por favor toma una foto. Utilice el botón "Post a make".

What size nozzle did you use? The raised text isn't slicing well for me with a 0.4 nozzle.

I have a Prusa i3 MK3 with a 0.4 nozzle.
I use Slic3r, but the Prusa edition.
You might try to switch on the "thin walls" option in your slicer?

nice thing!
Which font is that in your main picture? i like it

It's the "Aldo" Font. You can install it on your system and then use OpenSCAD to generate the .STL
