Customizable Heart-Shaped Compartmentalized Box by Taper Jun 16, 2013


I've seen lovely small heart-shaped boxes here, like http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:42309, and decided to try my hand at designing my own to use Customizer.

The lid is friction-fit. When I tested the design, I had to sand down the edges of the lid some for it to snap into place. This script has an option to shrink the lid by 1-2%, which will (with any luck) still fit snugly but without as much elbow grease. This has not been tested, though.

The script includes a module to create simple heart shapes, should anyone need such a thing.

EDIT: I just realized that I've revised the internal dividers slightly since printing the box shown in the photo -- the current angle is 90°, not the acute angle displayed. Apologies for any confusion. I'll print a corrected version soon.

Printed in ABS on the Eugene MakerSpace's Thing-o-Matic, using a .2mm layer-height and 70% infill. The lid's sides were sanded, and the whole thing was rubbed with a small amount of acetone for smoothing.
