micro sd case, open

It has been a bit a couple of weeks since I last made a post. I am working on the next curve tracer post, but the next post covers a fair amount of material and it takes several decisions to get some of these things going.

I had found myself gathering MicroSD cards on my desktop for a while and I decided at some point this week to take a look at Thingiverse to find a nice little organizer or holder for MicroSD cards. To my surprise, I didn't find anything even close to what I was looking for. I did find some holders, but they were all either mixed with a different type of storage (USB flash, full- sized SD cards, etc.) or didn't really have a look and feel that I was looking for.

As you probably know at this point, I decided to take a moment to design a MicroSD card holder that fit my requirements/goals. I wanted a holder that:

  1. Holds several cards
  2. Is expandable
  3. Is a small and easy print

In the end, I came up with a design that holds up to 5 cards and can have either a lid or another holder stacked on it to add capacity.

I printed this on a Makerbot Thing-O-Matic that has been lightly modified over the years. Any printer on earth that can be considered a 3D printer should be able to easily print this part, even with slight overhangs.

In the future, I may take a moment to add slots so that the box may easily be secured for travel without fear of the lid sliding off. There isn't a large chance for that to occur, but some would like the extra bit of security.
