Summary

Pac-Man Containers is a useful and fun container for small things like sweets, mints etc. so are great to use yourself or as a small gift.

This is an easy PLA print on well set up machines with a filament fan. Good build plate adhesion is necessary. This is a larger and more practical version of my Pac-Man design available at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1728304

They are a useful and fun container for small things like sweets, mints etc. so are great to use yourself or as a small gift.

At standard scale Pac-Man containers are 60mm in diameter and 20mm in depth. The triangular opening into each compartment is 20mm x 15mm (widest point) so big enough to store all sorts of small things.

Please refer to the instructions and images for additional information.

Print Settings

Printer Brand:

MakerBot

Printer:

MakerBot Replicator 2

Rafts:

Yes

Supports:

No

Resolution:

Standard / 0.20mm

Infill:

Recommend 2 shells / 20% or more infill


Notes:

Use raft to ensure this print sticks well to the build plate as the contact patch is minimal considering the size of the print.

Do not use any support or you risk the moving parts fusing.

The orientation of the print must remain as set in the .stl file or the compartments will not print correctly so they will not move and/or the print will fail.

Please note: This print has fine clearances and requires a well set up precise machine to print well with all parts moving.

Post-Printing

Remove the raft and free the compartments...

Freeing the compartments should be as easy as applying a small amount of pressure to each of the sliders. Rotate back and forth a couple of times and they should slide freely.

Please note: This print has fine clearances and requires a well set up precise machine to print well with all parts moving.
