I didn't get anything in the file I downloaded. I got a text file and a scad file. Where would the app be to make my own size?

There's an option called "Open In Customizer" in the "Thing Apps Enabled" section below the download section. It will open customizer in a new tab, and you can input your options there.

Alternatively, you can download the files and open the scad file in OpenSCAD, but you'll have to manually assign valuables to the variables at the top of the code.

My wife makes her own fancy clothes, so they come in handy. Thank you for this customizable design!!

So sad there's no stl file I need tiny buttons for doll clothes.

If customizer works for you, that would be the easiest way to generate your file. Personally, I find customizer to rarely work on any browsers I use. You can also download the free, open-source, cross-platform OpenSCAD and use the scad file I've included here to customize on your own computer.

Underrated item, much easier to just print yourself a button than buying one. I mean, what's the point of a $1000 printer if not to print a 10 cent button?

Seriously though, very nice. Great idea.

I totally agree!

Correct, there's no STL file. Open the customizer app to interactively design your own button, or download the SCAD file and open it in OpenSCAD to customize the options at the top of the script and generate the STL file from there.
