Its just a waste of filament

Just spent 3 days and 40 miles of filament building this contraption only to find out it does not hold a 60 card sleeved deck. In fact it's not wide enough for even a single sleeved card. So wtf... cool design but ultimately a waste of life.

I'm sorry you feel that way. Why don't you just scale it up then?

Could this fit ~66 single sleeved, yugioh sized cards?

Want to make this for my Card-fight Vanguard Gear Chronicle deck

will this fit yugioh cards and how many of these pieces can i fit on the build plate at a time?

This deck box has limited card space.
What it can hold:
40 sleeved cards
60 unsleeved cards

Cool design, being able to see the mechanics, but requires major modification since the finished product cannot even hold 60 sleeved cards.

I am planning on redesigning to hold 100 sleeved cards. This will supply to EDH and STD with sideboard.

thinking of making this for my sister who plays mtg but are wondering if sleeved mtg cards would fit?

Love this design but I could never get the pieces to fit correctly. Check out my remix!

Yes I saw it. Very cool!

One of these days maybe I will revisit my design and make it more printable. Since I made this, my printer has gotten a lot more reliable and I am less afraid of making large complex print jobs. Plus I have a heated bed now :)

printed circle at 100% still breaks easy. where does it go exactly read directions got the gist of it but a step by step would be amazing ( for the dense people like me..

Don't use circle. Use Axleside instead. Also, if you do want to use circle, then you have to glue it into place. My circle was pretty flimsy too until I did that.

awesome box in the process of building, what the raised straight part on the bottom that lifts the cards up for?

What do you use for the hinges on the top? it looks like there are holes to put pins in but in the photo they are not used.

Oh yea. I put a paper clip in there, or a piece of 20 gauge wire

cool, so do i need to print two copies of holly_edge.stl?

The instructions are not clear at all, I may import this in to blender and figure it out then post up a photo of an exploded view or something.

Just about finished building this project. Couple of tips... You will need to print two of holey_side.stl, holey edge.stl and holey frontback.stl.  Also, the circle didn't quite fit well into the holey_side part so I cut off the two small flanges and left the middle wedge.  I just had to glue it in place.  

For the hinges, I found that 18 gauge solid core wire fit wonderfully.

It took me quite a while to figure out where to put the circle axle.  Could you post a photo illustrating the circle, holey_side and halfgear together?

As soon as I finish the build, I'll upload the photos.  I have a feeling that our Magic club will be asking me to make many of these.

Uploaded "axleside.stl" which is a fusion of holey side and circle.stl. Also there's a picture of how it should fit. I hope this works.. I don't have the object in front of me and I'm not 100% sure this was how i ended up gluing it together. Yes there is a lot of gluing in this project and what you describe with circle.stl is exactly what i did. Good luck! Thanks for making my thing!

Do I need to print two copies of axleside or is it only used on one side of the box?

I used it on only one side of the box. I suppose you could use two but one was gave enough springiness for me.

This is awesome. I'm thinking of adapting it to different sized things, and I was wondering if you could share the 'source' file. What did you model it with?

I took belrius's STL files and modded them using rhino. I'm afraid the "source" is belrius's SCAD. I couldn't get it to compile so I did the next best thing.

May we have a video of the box in action please?

The box is no longer in my possession. Sorry :P. Maybe I can convince its new owner to take a video of it but that might not be for a while.

the box is sick. thank you for the design. working on mine right now
