The X-box by JeppeHMikkelsen Oct 3, 2012

Description

This is a piece I made out of pure boredom.

As you can see it is 6 X's that combines into a box, I made sure that the locking part would not fit together in a 3D-program, but in reality they would fit perfectly together because of impurities.

Hope you like it!

You are welcome to further improve my design, as long as you link it back to me.

Well that is good to know.  I had only run it through the Netfabb basic and it found some errors.  I'll have to try and send it through the cloud version and see if it does any better.

 Did you run it through the cloud service (cloud.netfabb.com)? Because the standalone Netfabb Basic doesn't correct inverted faces.

Welp the half sized version I just printed didn't work out so well...
For some reason the "lid" printed solid and I didn't notice it until it was done printing.

It would appear the problems with the mesh will cause some problems when we print it smaller.  BTW I did run this through Netfabb and it doesn't appear it did anything to fix it.

FYI the top and bottom have several inverted faces. Not a problem for some slicers but you could run each piece through cloud.netfabb.com to fix.

I haven't had any problems, neither the two others that printed :)

I sent my copy home with my kids so I'm pretty sure every kid in their school is going to be looking at this thing today.  I may try scaling it down and making some smaller copies for fun.

how did it go? :)

That is so cool! :D I hope it's going to be succesfull :D

I tried to slice the bottom part on skeinforge but has something wrong with it and is taking forever to slice.  I'm not I'm going to be able to print this.

hmm... that is rather strange. I used replicatorG on my makerbot replicator, and it all worked fine, what kind of 3D-printer do you use?
