Mac OSX paper bin

Update: This design is now also dowloadable via YouMagine. Please check it out there, I plan to remove all files from thingiverse one day in the future too if the situation keeps getting worse...
I wanted to have a piece of Mac OSX (which -in my opinion- is the best-looking operating system) on my desk. I have chosen the paper bin of Mac OSX because it is at first a really good-looking piece of design and represents the philosophy that even a container for waste can look great. Secondly, it was a good chance to enhance my modelling-skills, which are not that good. I used Google SketchUp for modelling and I think that I nearly reached the point where SketchUp was not able anymore to create what I wanted.
Anyhow, feel free to print out your own paper bin with that nice design and please post your pictures of them :)
I used the following settings for printing:
Layer height: 0.12mm
Wall thickness: 0.2mm
retraction: enabled, only if jumps are bigger than 3mm
(The big version shown in the last picture was only a test-piece. The quality of the print is not that good...)
