Having great success printing these at 0.15mm with a 0.1 lid gap. What is the the wall thickness used in the example 36x20xr6 container?

I didn't think anyone would need to adjust it and wanted to minimize the number of parameters. Clearly I was wrong, so I exposed the "lip height" parameter so you can now configure it with the customizer. Thanks for the suggestion!

I just couldn't figure out how to make the lip taller!(It keeps falling off) Tried 4 or 5 times and gave up. Downloaded the scad file and bingo...you have it hidden in the run() module! Why not make it available in the customizer?
