Love Jinja's design, but the bottom wire traps didn't work for me. I added these stay holes on top to keep the plug inside the box when the lid is snapped on.

Thank you for the file, I really appreciate it and the earbud box came out super nice!
I made one for my niece. Hope she can use it.
I haven't seen her without her earbuds in about 2 years, though...

That looks great, I'm really liking this design.

Try replacing your headphone_protect function with the following, I think it'll make for a more pleasing shape (I'm using it in my next iteration)....

module headphone_protect()


rounded_box( iwidth+5+(2*wall), idepth+5+(2*wall), 1, radius+wall );

hollow_rounded_box( iwidth, idepth, iheight, radius, wall );




    rounded_taper3( iwidth+5+(2*wall), idepth+5+(2*wall), theight, iwidth+(2*wall), idepth+(2*wall), radius+wall );

    rounded_taper3( iwidth+5, idepth+5, theight, iwidth, idepth, radius );




    rounded_taper3( iwidth+(2*wall), idepth+(2*wall), theight, iwidth+5+(2*wall), idepth+5+(2*wall), radius+wall );

    rounded_taper3( iwidth, idepth, theight, iwidth+5, idepth+5, radius );



Done - yes, much better :)

Nice! I'll be uploading a derivative that does away with the stay holes soon. I'm replacing them with holes for the jack. Love the lid! Could we hinge it somehow?

Hinged lid... yes... I like it! Would have to be some sort of snap-in...
