Description

Here is a box that I made with my reprstrap. It has an inside size of 50 mm by 50 mm by 25 mm (approx).

I made one using 1.75 filament as pin. I resized it of 1.175 so that I don't need to drill the holes.

Scale it by a factor of 2 in all dimensions. This will change the 1.5mm holes into 3.0mm holes. You will still have to drill them out, I think.

scale so the pin can be 3mm filament?

Mine printed with no warping. I didn't have rod, but 1/16 is approximately the diameter of the wire handles on a medium binder clip (which are of course easy to pop out) - worked like a charm.

good to know brass works well for hinges

This one works pretty well! My box's lid bent a little, but other than that it shuts nicely, and acts as a great container for things!
