This holder was inspired by others that are around, but that had the problem of not allocating USB sticks that are wider, including the SD adapter-reader.
This design allocates very well up to 8 USB wide sticks, and 8 SD cards of standard size, but only 5 micro-SD.
Also added holes to prevent from dust accumulation, and reduce a little the material used to print it.

* There is an improved version of this design available, try it here USB SD and MicroSD holder for wide USB sticks


Just print it in any infill density you want, it works well since 40%, or even less

MicroSD slots indeed needed re-work, I'm about to release a new version that fixes that.

Hopefully will be released before Nov-18, 2017.

Stay tuned!

sizing wise the usb and the sd cards fit fine, but the microsc cards do not slide into the slots. The slots are too small. Are they supposed to go in at an angle or something? Im trying to put them strait in from the top.

Other then that and the fact that I sliced off 4 usb ports, I loved this one!

Good job!

Not really in my case, printed on Prusa i3 mega and micro SD slots fit perfectly, tight and don't fall out. Great job, but after a half year of printing it seems like there is still no standard for all 3d printers. Some parts I couldn't print well work better on other printers when I look at the comments. Where is the regulation guys?

The Micro-SD slots have too much play on my print. They always fall out at the slightest move.

Cool little gadget, I'm using it now. But we did a video on our print which can be watched here:
also if the description of the video you will be able to see all of our print details, for those who are interested.

I just finished printing this thing. 40% infill at .1mm resolution was probably overkill. Also I had to print it at an angle vertically with supports to get it fit on my tiny print tray. 19 hours of printing.

Otherwise this thing came out great.

You should make versions with less usb sticks

just toss it into tinkercad and slice off the end with the usb. Took me 30 seconds

The design files loaded up here do not seem to quite match the photos of what you have printed. In the designs the MicroSD slot is purely in the angled surface and does not break the vertical edge. This makes it a but small for MicroSD cards to sit snugly. Beyond that this is a great looking print so I would like to thank you for sharing a nice bit of simple but stylish design with us all.

Really nice object! Printed flawlessly and made my workbench some more space. Thank you Lalo_Solo!

I wouldent reccommend any one to print this th micro sd slots were too small for me

Agree. Non ideal for mircoSD.

I had some serious warping under the SD slots. I think it wouldn't be so bad if it was solid at the bottom.

mon impression stop toujours au même endroit......... impossible de finir

This is the first thing I printed on my new Maker Gear M2. A very useful design! Thanks!

Would you mind sharing the CAD file? I'd like to alter the number of slots. Thanks!

The design was made with Blender, however I recommend that you use the STL file that is published here.

You could import it from FreeCad, or any other design program, and edit it from there (including Blender itself).

Probably the most useful thing I've printed

Why are the USB sticks press-fit? and why did you not also design this to be injection-molded as well, when you could easily have shelled the part? My critique is that this design works great as-is, but it could work much better with some extra tinkering.

Try looking at my USB holder to see what I'm talking about: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1913202

Interlocking USB Holder

Why just 5 Micro SD slots? Although there is so much space for them.. then it would be perfect.

first print in abs curled just enough to not allow cards to fit so second print in pla should fix this issue. if i was going to try again in abs i would print up instead of across flip model in z :)

I put a Deadpool Logo, batman logo, and Halo CE Logo on it. I also put a small layer on the floor so nothing falls incase. Nice model dude!

Printed a similar model - make sure you print high-accuracy if you want to put micro-sd cards in. I printed with fast settings and can't use micro-sd now. USB and SD work fine, so just print careful if you have micro!!

Hey just want you to know, there is someone on Ebay selling your design with your photos and everything. They aren't crediting the design at all. here's the link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/3D-Printed-USB-and-SD-Card-Holder-/262259737746?hash=item3d0fe60492:g:~ZEAAOSwqYBWpr5H . If you call Ebay they can have the product pulled if you wish.

They want $77 for it? Is that....ludacris? I haven't looked at pricing prints yet, been too busy on my own projects.

For $77 you could print close to 150 of these little USB holders. haha. $77 for this item is far too expensive, save money and print one yourself. It would only cost maybe 50 cents.

Yeah I thought it was too high, I own a printer to be clear, and I haven't looked at selling prints yet. But $77? Yikes. Glad to know I wasn't alone thinking that was too high!

This worked perfectly for what I needed, thanks!

Thanks for this. Printed nicely at .2mm with 5% infill in PLA on a Flashforge Dreamer.
