CASCADE CARD WALLET Remixed by Natoshi Sakamoto << Tips are very welcome!
A pop up card wallet, it uses a front swipe motion to access the cards. It’s print-in-place so that it is easier and ready to use right out of the printer. The design is simple and minimalistic, focused around ease of use. Although it is print in place, it requires some pressing and forcing to free the movement.
The cards are held in place thanks to the 2 front slots that takes advantage of the plastic’s elasticity to keep them form falling out even upside down. The retention mechanism is sliced in 2 (with the groove on the side that is not straight) to prevent having one large card that stretches out all the plastic and lets go of all the other cards.

After the print is done, press on the pivot in the back of the wallet to free the mechanism: Press it in different directions and you should hear some clicks from the parts coming apart.
(you can press quite hard if needed) I made an extra 2 holes in the back to better detach the mechanism, you can push with a screwdriver head to free the pieces.
Also, free up the front strip and then you can force a bit and it should make it move. It’s a bit rough at the start but move it several times all the way to smooth the movement.
