I made this at TechShop
, using the MakerBot Replicator 2! I designed this on Adobe 123D Design. (I could not upload the .123dx file, so I uploaded the .stl file instead)
I got my newly printed business cards, and needed a business card holder to carry these around in. What better way, than to make it yourself! I chose to 3D print it at TechShop
To start of, determine your business card size. In my case, 90 mm x 50 mm could comfortably hold my cards with a little wiggle room. I designed my case to be of 2mm thickness, so the exterior dimensions would be 94mm x 54mm. I also wanted it to have a relatively small cross section - I chose 8mm, putting it about the thickness of an iPhone 5. This case holds about 10-12 business cards.
I will lay out the different steps of the design - the main learning curve for me with 3D modeling was how the different shapes were assembled, so I thought instructions on how I put my shapes together will be useful for you.
