parametric OpenSCAD model for a twisted box consisting of two parts that screw into each other.
Parametrize it to your needs by setting the parameters in the TwistedBox module in the OpenSCAD script.
- DXF files supplies the footprint for the extruded parts
- twisting angle
- height of grip
I exported some sample boxes along with some footprint dxf files to get you started.
In the examples I used 1.5mm as the with of the extruded boxes which gets skeinforged into 2 printed layers with no infill in between on my setup. for the space between the screwing parts I used 0.5mm but you might want to make this a little bit bigger if you have very irregularly shaped footprint. There are 4 layers that define how the parts will screw together.
