3D Modeling Name Tags with OpenSCAD

Overview

 This project uses OpenSCAD to create custom name tags. The name tags feature twin icons, text for name, text for title, and an optional border. Use the Customizer to adjust the icon type, text, and size of the various name tag components.

The Second Version

The second round of features added to the OpenSCAD name tag generator include rounded corners, chain loop, and custom fonts. 

Here are some sample name tag prints from the second edition of the OpenScad name tag module:
