Preassembled Secret Heart Box

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.

Initially, I had problems with the upper surfaces when I was printing this on an Ultimaker. But, when I reduced the speed from 50mm to 20mm/s, it printed great. Thanks for a great design.
emmetts, this model (like many of yours) are heavily bugged with dangling edges. For a few of the previous ones, I manage to fix them with netfabb. Unfortunately, this one is just way too buggy that even netfabb couldn't fix. It would be great if you can fix this one, or point out which parts of the scad code causing the dangling edges. For your information, some of the dangling edges are located at the joints.
Thanks in advance.

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.
