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?

Instructions

See attached diagram for customizable parameters. For the lid and container to match, the outside diameter and wall thickness must be the same. Use the lid gap to adjust how tightly the lid fits.

:) I had the same reaction, I thought they were renders at first, but then saw the lines in the plastic. Definitely the most gorgeous plastic colors I have seen. Well done.
