Customizable Rolodex Filament Swatchby
There highly customizable (OpenScad) filament swatches that are compatible with Rolodexes!
Don't have a Rolodex? Print one!
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!
Openscad can use almost any font installed on your computer!
Select Font List from the Help menu. Copy the font you want into the appropriate field (remove any surrounding double quotes)
By default, the file uses the Liberation Sans font which comes with OpenScad.
