Looks Great! I would like to make these thin so I can hang them up on a Cubical, I'm going to cut it down in the slicer, but it would be great to have base width or something in customize. Not complaining, just an Idea. Love it!

So you just want to cutomize the thickness, meaning you still have then chamfered back edges? Or do you want ideally just a flat brick-like base with text on top?

Yes Ideally it would just be a flat brick-like base but I didn't want to because to much trouble! I have been printing ones out for my teammates at work, I just do it in tinkercad, but I loved the idea of this so wanted to give it a go and the font is much nicer.

Ok added your idea as another "type=A flat name tag" to be set in the first line of customizer. You can also set the thickness of the base as last setting.
Have fun!

And I need a "post a make" with picture of your print from you now :)

wow awesome! Of course that is the least i can do!

:) Looking forward to that

I'm going to make one tonight. Or should I wait for v2 with unicode emoji support? :P
I only have so many desks I can put a name plate on at work

Super, please do and if possible share a picture of your print like last time :)
I would love to have emojis, but i could only find some things like a heart, etc. Do you think it would be useful here?

In my personal opinion, emojis were never ever useful. But I promise people will ask for it anyway :)
Maybe some, like the job emojis would be a nice addition to a name plate. (Eg. I was planing making one of these for the desk of a friend that works at the police with the policeman emoji on the side

From my understanding, openscad can render only standard monochrome fonts (not the advanced one in higher unicode ranges,these always appear as empty rectangles in openscad). I guess it would only be a matter of finding a dedicated emoji font.

On the desktop openscad can show emojis if you have such a b/w font installed. But there are no emoji fonts available in the thingiverse customizer. I found only basic shapes like a heart etc and added those to the sweeping-2-line-nameplate after you printed one nameplate for your grandma and included a heart...

Nice work ! It looks great. Good clean up on the code too.

Thanks a lot!
And all goes back to your great idea and implementation, its a superclean design and easy to print!
