I just printed this but the SD cards fall out very easily. A cool design/stand, but not so much for moving around. Do I need to scale it?

It's not originally meant for transporting the cards, so the tolerances are loose to allow easy insertion/removal. I like your idea, though!

Scaling it down along one axis (or reducing the slot size in the customizer) might work, but is not the optimal solution since you'd want a slightly tapering recess in which you push the SD cards with a tiny bit of force to that it is held by friction.

I've made a quick-and-dirty modification to the design and uploaded a new STL as "Experimental SD Card Holder Transportable". Try it out if you like - I can't guarantee it will work, but chances are good it will :-)

(Of course, if you try it out, it would be great if you'd let me know if it worked, so I can make include it in the design as a truly customizable feature.)
