I really liked paulhoover's "Vegetable garden signs" and thought I'd try creating something similar in Customizer.

While I'll admit this doesn't have as much style as Paul's they should work OK for custom garden labeling.

What should I do ?
Thank you.

Hi Barnababouille,

Are you downloading the .scad files and opening them on OpenSCAD on your computer? If so you need to download the build_plate and Write libraries to open the model.

Alternatively you can click "Customize" on Thingiverse and use the Customizer app to generate signs without any additional configuration.

i am unable to get the sign off the raft when I print it out. What do I do?

Hmm I've never tried printing these with a raft. Maybe try printing raft-less?

I get these messages in OpenScad, when trying to render "Customizable_Garden_Signs.scad":
WARNING: Can't open 'use' file 'write/Write.scad'.
WARNING: Can't open 'use' file 'utils/build_plate.scad'.

Where to get these files ?

So awesome. How did you do that?

Hah thanks, your original is pretty awesome too!

I designed a similar style name tag using OpenSCAD which works with Thingiverse's Customizer app. If you haven't delved into OpenSCAD yet grab the source file for this thing and take a look. I put off learning it for quite some time but it was surprisingly easy once I gave it a shot.

Adding customizations to models and pretty awesome and saves yourself from getting any more plant name requests ;)
