The STL (Standard Tessellation Language or STereoLithography) file format is the most commonly used format for 3D printing.
When used with a 3D slicer, it allows a computer to communicate with the 3D printer hardware, printing a model.
Since its humble beginnings, many CAD software packages have adopted and supported the STL file format.
It is a 3D printing process and corresponding file type created by Chuck Hull at 3D Systems in the 1980s. It is for rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and computer-aided manufacturing.

Printed Pop-Up Wallet STL Author Recognition
The design is simple and minimalistic, focused on ease of use.
Printed Pop-Up Wallet STL Description
This is his own design of a pop-up card wallet. It uses a front swipe motion to access the cards. He made it print-in-place so that it is easier and ready to use right out of the printer.
Although it is printed 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 take advantage of the plastic’s elasticity to keep them from falling out even upside down. He sliced the retention mechanism into 2 parts (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.
How to Use the Pop-Up Wallet
After the print is done (printed upright), press on the pivot in the back of the wallet to free the mechanism. Press it in different directions, you should hear some clicks from the parts coming apart. (you can press quite hard if needed)
He 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, then you can force a bit and it should make it move.
It is a bit rough at the start, but move it several times all the way to smooth the movement.
