Here is an offshoot of my original cassette tape case available here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:647517

This remix adds customizable album art templates. Believe it or not, there is a thriving tape release community among DIY and underground music labels.

This is designed to be printed without support structures with a recommended layer height of .2mm. I'm including versions with a rectangular top insert and a round top insert. Print either LogoCassette1RectangulerHole.stl or LogoCassette1RoundHole.stl, then print LogoCassette2 and LogoCassette3. Open LogoCassetteTemplate.skp in SketchUp and customize with your band's album art before printing. I recommend using one color for parts 1 and 2 and another color for the part 3 and the logos.

I am only including the pictures of the Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon logos as examples of what you can do. I do not own the copyright to that album art, so I can't include it here. (And please don't ask for it.)

If you customize or remix this, please list this file as the source and follow the rules of Creative Commons - Attribution - Share Alike.

Before attempting to print this, make sure your printer is well calibrated. The parts are designed to fit snugly. I recommend this calibration tool: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:342198/#instructions

Big thanks and credit to my friend Austin Gaines for coming up with the idea.

I’ve also been looking for a file for printing the actual cassette case. I’d like one I can print both halves, insert my own audio tape recording inside and assemble to be able to play in a cassette player.
Do you have or know of a file for a functional cassette case? I’ve seen many that are solid plastic. :/

I have been looking for this too. Lmk if you find it. If not I may develop a template

Nothing yet.
I'm very illiterate in the 3D printing world and I have no skills to make the template- LMK if and when you do.

I've not seen this yet either. I have a bit of a backlog on projects, so I don't foresee me making one in the near future, but I do agree somebody needs to make one.

thanks, big fan of netlabels and friends of mine are deep into the tape trading.
hopefully a good excuse to make a limited edition ep :]

Thank you! Let me know how it prints for you.
