You can also make name tags using BlocksCAD. The BlocksCAD block interface creates an OpenSCAD file for printing, but the user interface is much friendlier. The text functions let you insert any text you want in a variety of different fonts. BlocksCAD is a great way to introduce programming for younger students who might not be as adept at OpenSCAD formatting. https://www.blockscad3d.com/community/projects/30243

Thanks for the tip! We've been hearing good things about BlocksCAD from a lot of teachers. Do you have any projects that you've run using BlocksCAD? We would love to take a look!

Official BlocksCAD account here-- We're glad you have been hearing great things from teachers. We have a lot of projects on our website and would love to open a dialogue with MakerBot about projects and student and teacher needs!

Hi BlocksCAD! We'll send you a DM to follow up, it would be great to hear more about your projects and education initiatives.

Every project I have posted on thingiverse has been made with BlocksCAD so feel free to check out my profile! For even more ideas, check out the BlocksCAD community page and gallery at https://www.blockscad3d.com/community

Great to see some customizer lessons! This will definitely a big help for users starting making customizable things.

I have got one suggestion, you may add the str function to the code this way:

        text = str(myword), 
        font = myfont,


Otherwise you will not be able to enter a pure number (like 123).
