MakerBot - the Lunchbox! by ErikJDurwoodII Oct 25, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

This is probably only large enough to take a sandwich and a Capri-Sun, or a Lunchable... but hey! You can store other things in it too! I'll upload a lid without the "Lunchbox" line a bit later after my print of this completes and then the source files.

Enjoy!

UPDATE: After printing the lid, it's obvious the hinge and the lid are a bit flimsy for the task at hand so if you print the files that are up right now, do so at 100% infill for the best strength.

I'll update this with a re-thought snap and hinge shortly.

Thanks!

made one today on the replicator 2. Came out decent, the pins were a little tough to make it through had to size them down a bit. 

Love the concept, think the handle might need a little bit more clearance to be comfy carrying it around.

Awesome work Looking forward to seeing where this goes

It is intended to be printed lettering-down and yes it was a challenge!

In what orientation do you recommend we print this?  I'm wondering if it prints face (lettering) down, that it'll be mighty hard to get it off the kapton tape...

Hey, if it'll fit a roll of Kapton tape and a bunch of misc tools like allen wrenches... Very cool, man!

Really nice!
Are you able to upload STEP files, then we could all put our own logos on it?

YES!  Once I am satisfied with the structural integrity of the project as it is, I will upload the source files for three versions:  This one, one without "the LunchBox" tagline and a "vanilla" one with no makerbot logos at all.
