Hi there

Any clue, why the customizer fails?

I get this error:

<JSON::ParserError: A JSON text must at least contain two octets!>

Nice work!

I'd like to let you know about CraftML, a new tool for making parametric models like this customizable battery tray you designed.

Inspired by your design, I used CraftML to make a similar model:

3ders has an article about CraftML.

Hope you will find CraftML useful for your future 3D modeling endeavors!

Uh, I hate being the guy who has to point it out but it looks like XML... :) I mean, I'm not dissing it or anything, maybe it's more like HTML 5 markup.

I like functions and being able to reuse them such as scripting / programming. OpenSCAD is my favorite so far. I will have to explore other solutions like CraftML.

Cool design you have there. I will have to try out CraftML. Looks very interesting! I never knew about it until I read this comment. Thanks!

Nice design.
I use a batteryholder to store my rechargeable batteries.
Not buying any other than that.

Thanks and nice choice of Battery's too! :-)

The base appears to be too thin. Some of the batteries are a little bit hard to get in... love the concept

Press the "Open in Customizer" button above and you can easily set the base depth and battery diameter to whatever values you prefer.

When I printed mine, there was no 'top' on the carrier. I can see the shells that make up the rounds, with no flat cover over them...

Any chance of making one of these where the bottom will attach to the top via friction? Would be the best, most customizable tray on here...
