I made some for a Christmas dinner. Everyone liked them so I thought I would share.


You need a file of names and initials, such as the initials.csv included here, You also need:

  • python
  • openscad

I have only been able to test on ubuntu linux thus far as command line access to openscad is required.

When these dependencies have been satisfied, simply edit the CSV to contain the names and initials you need then run:


Then STL's shall start appearing in the export folder.
