Instead of printing out the CCubeWall.stl individually and flat, in makerware I placed 4 CCcubeWall.stl vertically and positioned them so that the corners were flushed to each other, that way no glue required and no warping when printed flat. Then I printed out 2 of the CCubeLid.stl, no supports. I also scaled it by 75% to reduce any bridging failure of CcubeLid. It's 3 pieces all together, wall are all together, top and bottom are same.

Yes, I meant CcubeLid.stl not CcubeTop,stl.

Take some photos, I don't quite get what you mean.. I get that you printed the walls together.. but did you mean you printed 2 of the CCube_lid.stl? cause if you printed the CCube_Top.stl you still need the CCube_side.stl making the whole thing 5 pieces...

Instructions

Print 2 of both the CCube top.stl and CCube side.stl and glue them together..
Print 4 of the CCube wall.stl
they can be glued together at the edges, glued to the bottom lid or both,
the walls will hold together on their own when the box is closed
(though it may collapse if not glued together when picked up by the walls)

I recommend .20mm layer hight. and around 15% infill.
it all prints without support.

if you would rather not deal with glueing the lid peices together, you can try printing 2 of the CCubelid.stl with support.

what layer height did you use on this as with .2 mm i have weirdness going on.. it has just random garbage it extrudes on the rounding of the place for the hear and on the edges.. not sure whats going on

chefmaki on Feb 21, 2013 said:

I printed this with .20mm which may not be the same as .2mm what software you using? also which file where you having problems with?

I'm not sure why but this is unsliceable.

chefmaki on Jan 25, 2013 said:

I don't know what to tell you, I and others have been able to generate gcode for this, so try downloading the file again or try different slicing software. Someone else had a problem slicing the ccubewall.stl with slic3r, what software are you using? And which file is causing the problem?

ancyberturtle on Dec 30, 2012 said:

I cannot get slic3r to slice CCubewall.stl. I hangs on processing triangulated mesh even when ran overnight. Any suggestions?

I've run all these files through netfab.. so I'm pretty sure it's not the file.. are you using the latest version of Slic3r? or maybe try a different gcode software?..

That looks cool. I am curious is that ABS? If so where did you get it?

I have "silver" ABS but it's more like glossy gray.

chefmaki on Dec 16, 2012 said:

 Thanks!,  it's the Silver ABS from the Makerbot Store, I'm sure it's the same one you got, its kinda gray but it photographs shiny when you use the flash..
