This Customizable Brick Block Box is based on the brick blocks from the original Super Mario Bros.

Thanks to the flexibility of OpenSCAD, this can be turned into a solid block, a cup, a container with a lid, or a tube with an open top and bottom - but with just a little scripting, it can be customized into many other remix projects!

Customization

Customization goes far beyond mere scaling.

You can set:

  • Width/depth of the block
  • Number of brick layers
  • Size of the chamfer between each brick
  • Object style (solid, tube, cup, lid, wall)
  • Wall width
  • Brick pattern (same as rotating the object 90 degrees, but may be relevant in future updates)
  • Clearance
  • Enable/disable top layer brick pattern
  • Enable/disable bottom layer brick pattern

Printing

If your printer can print 45 degree overhangs, this can be printed without supports.

By default, the block has a smooth bottom. While it can be printed with a brick texture on the bottom, you must have very good print bed adhesion for this to look good. curling on the bottom layer can be an issue.

How do I customize this? This is an OpenSCAD project. OpenSCAD is a script-based modeling software specifically created for projects like this that need to be customizable.

If you're new to the program, it may look strange at first, but most of the work is just typing values into a form or selecting customization options from a dropdown list. You do not need to know any programming or write a single line code to use OpenSCAD.

Once you've entered everything you need, you can export an STL file for printing. Here's a helpful video that walks through the entire process!
