This is really neat and useful! Thanks CodeCreations :)

I really like the idea - but mine was so light that it would fall over if you looked at it funny. Thoughts on weighting down the base?

Okay -- the US quarter version tested very well, so I uploaded it. I also added support for 26 other common coins in the USA, Canada, Australia, and Europe -- or you can define your own.

Try it out and let me know how it works for you.

Okay -- I did a new version last night that includes the coin weight, and I'm testing it out "in production" here at the office today. I'll put it up tonight -- stay tuned! :)

Did you try attaching the photo the other way -- with the center tab on the back?

You can also try tweaking the angle or base thickness (or width/length) to weigh it down a bit.

Your question gives me an idea, though: I could model in a slot to insert a coin -- maybe a quarter or nickel or some user-selectable diameter. I'll have to work on that when I get back home (where I
have access to calipers) later this week.

Thanks for the comments -- definately try to insert the photo with the middle tab in back if you haven't tried that yet.
