Box with lid by randrews Nov 3, 2012

Description

This is a box with a hinged lid, large enough to hold various small things, like maybe cards. It uses a straightened-out paperclip for the hinge pin, and can be held closed with another paperclip.

When I originally printed this last year, I did it on blue tape. Now I use glass + hairspray for everything, so I'd recommend that.
What kind of tape kapton blue you used?
Is the rep2 bigger? I couldn't get them to both fit on the platform on my Replicator. :)

Instructions

Print it out, I used 10% infill and it came out fine. You'll probably need to drill the holes out a bit to be able to work the paperclip through, but it should be very snug once it's in. Get a second paperclip and use pliers to turn one end into a loop, then use through the holes on the other end to hold it closed.

Here's the model on Tinkercad:

Actually it printed perfectly in PLA - no drilling needed
Really? Weird, I did mine in PLA also and the holes didn't quite line up. I drilled them out with a 2.5mm bit and they were fine though.
What did you slice with?
Miracle Grue, so that might be it.
I did as well - 25% fill .20 mm layer 2 shells. I did combine them and printed at same time on a Rep2. Printed perfectly first shot. Snapped right together with paperclip
