Description

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
retraction-speed: 60mm/s
speed: 40mm/s
nozzle-size: 0.4mm
material: PLA.

(The big version shown in the last picture was only a test-piece. The quality of the print is not that good...)

I am sorry, but I only used Cura in combination with an Ultimaker so far- Maybe the settings I posted are too fine for your slicer.

I hope you can solve this problem and happy fabbing!

Hi, I tried slicing this stl code using slic3r and it produce gcode.
and then I load the gcode into pronterface (mendelmax 1.5)
when hitting print command, it does nothing on the printer. However the pronterface monitor shows progress and it display the temperature message of the printing progress. Do you know what happen ? New to 3D print

I wonder if this will this print on mendelmax ?

Now, just put a USB or SD card that you want to delete the files on inside the waste basket as a reminder that you want to clean them up...

Usually i forget which pictures I've backed up because I don't empty the SD card and end up with multiple copies. When I print this I'll use it to put the SD cards that have been backed up already to remind me to empty the files.

I'm not sure why I don't just cut the files from the SD card and copy them to the computer instead of copying. Everyone has their quirks...

This is a very nice use case!
And the paper bin has a function as trash...

Please post some photos if you really print it :)

whoa you printed that in a single piece standing upright.

you have a damn good calibration there!

i would have cut that object in three pieces.. the mesh unwrapped and flatened (hot water makes PLA very soft so you can bend it to right shape)

so it wil print without any strings, and of course seperate botom and top rings.

then glue everything together later...

lukasbieri on Jun 27, 2013 said:

Yes, I am very happy with the calibration now- My Ultimaker had a lot of problems after assembling it- But after hours of searching for problems I have an Ultimaker with a very nice calibration :)

Your idea of cutting that thing in 3 parts is good- but I wanted to test out how small detaills I could print. If anyone would like to have a 3-parts-model, please feel free to edit the .skp-file I added to the downloads :)

On what printer did you do it? Makerbot? Ultimaker?

lukasbieri on Jun 27, 2013 said:

I printed it on my 1-month-old Ultimaker.

Nice design! !

AbyssalHeaven on Jun 26, 2013 said:

I would totally use the larger version as a pencil holder. Put something in the bottom to weigh it down and I bet it would look great.

lukasbieri on Jun 27, 2013 said:

That's a great idea! I even think that putting something in the bottom is not needed, because it is very stable as it comes out-of-the printer.
I use the smaller one for the messed up prints at the moment.

You really want to be sued aren't you ? Nice job anyway ! I will send you postcards when you will be in jail.

lukasbieri on Jun 27, 2013 said:

Haha, I am looking forward to your postcards ;)

LOOOOVE THIS

Mac is NOT the best-looking OS; I would say Ubuntu is.

I can't stand Mac...

lukasbieri on Jun 26, 2013 said:

Well, feel free to like the OS you want- but people please do not start an argument about which OS is the better one. Thank you :)

That is really good for Google SketchUp ...

so true!
