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?

Instructions

The hinge pin is made from 1/16 inch brass rod. The hinge pin holes were chased with a 1/16 inch drill bit.

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!
Nooooo, boxes aren't great containers?????!!!!! *DONT_KNOW*
Nice job, just amassing! ;)
