These two boxes were quick experiments used as leaflet dispensers for a university project.

They worked ok for their purpose, i'm not sure how much use anyone else will have for them but I thought I would share anyway.


Box1 - printed fine at low resolution settings in makerware with a 5% infill, although there was slight warping on the base.

Box2 - printed ok at low resolution settings in makerware but I think the inside has a gradual overhang greater than 45degrees as it nears the top but this didn't seem to affect the quality of the outside of the print.

Just to know, for the first box (drape), did you use a physics simulator?

Hi, yeh sort of. I used the dynamics engine in modo 601 to basically drop a flat plane over a box. It required a bit of sculpting afterwards to remove intersections but it was actually really easy to make.

Interesting, thanks for the details.
