Preassembled Secret Heart Box
by emmett, published
UPDATE: By popular demand, I've modified the customizer code so you can now add words to the top of the heart. Make sure your valentine knows it's just for them.
A big Thank You to the good people at Makerbot and the bot farm for printing 100 of these as favors for my wedding. It's good to have a friend with a factory.

Note the 63 that people have made and posted here. A lot of this has to do with your particular printer and slicer and how well calibrated it all is. Also, as noted in the instructions, if you want one with thicker walls, just use Customizer and choose a different thickness. That's why I made it parametric.
I printed it twice and both time it needs at least 2 more layers on top and bottom, it's just to flimsly. Could you please correct it by having it put 2 more layers at least on the bottom in the beginning? and the same at least 2 layers on the finishing top. That would make it a nice heart, The way it is it just not worth printing. Thanks Ron.

Don't be afraid to use force; the worst that happens is it breaks and you print a new one. I made this for the Customizer App, so you can easily tweak the tolerance if you're having trouble. 0.1mm makes a lot of difference. You can also change the overall dimensions. Just keep in mind, if you make H too small, there will be no room for the mechanism and it won't work. You may also have to change the distance between the hinges if you change the size, or they might end up outside of the heart. Check the bottom view to make sure.
