Summary

Another variation on my earbud box. This time with a hinged lid that's pre-assembled.

Instructions

Print out and use.

This is not polished yet. If people like it then I'll finish it off, smooth off the edges and such. At the moment I still prefer the smaller version that this is derived from. Let me know if you want me to make any changes on it.

I love this design. I have been using it now for a few months and just marvel at its simplicity and functionality.

I've printed a couple of these now. The first couple had fused hinges. I fixed it by increasing the layer height down to .1 (was .25, which was just too sloppy). I also dropped the temp from 210 to 200, but I'm pretty sure the layer height was the "fix".
On my last one I added about 15mm to the length and 10mm to the height so that the box would accommodate my iPhone earbuds which are huge.
Thanks!!

You may uplod it as 2 diffrent stl fils

Just made one. Great design, but I think connecting the hinge posts to the main body with a few more layers would make it a lot stronger.

I just printed one, but unfortunatly the hinge was not functional and in attempting to free with a knife the print snapped

Really like your design, do you think you could add the OpenScad files for it? would really like to be able to change things like the tolerance between the two parts, as well as maybe adding a logo to the front.

uploading files isn't working for me it seems, just tried to upload it and it just sits there for minutes (it's only 11kb)
PM me your email addy and send it to you.

Awesome. I just made one. Made some mods with a dremel and a drill. But overall it is a great design.

Any mods that I should incorporate into the design?

See the one I made.

I think adding a clearance on the inside of the hinge would be a good mod.

adding a hold for a 3.5mm plug to go into might be nice.

Thanks Jinja for a great design. I really like this design. I made one and it worked out pretty well, although I wish it were a tad bigger. I can simply scale up to print a bigger one. I also had wished it was a little more rugged. It feels pretty flimsy at the lid and where the base meets the hinge. Is there any way to get a version that is a little more heavy duty? Once again, thanks for a really nice design!

Good suggestions, that shouldn't be a problem. When you say you want it a tad bigger, which dimensions were you thinking?

Actually, I was able to thicken up the bottom by editing the STL file directly. I made the bottom/top 1mm thicker and scaled the whole thing to 120% so it's just a bit bigger for my earbuds with iPhone controls. I'm at 40% printed now so it should be done soon.

What software do you use to design your stuff?
Great stuff!

I use OpenSCAD. http://www.openscad.org/http://www.openscad.org/

You use a simple language to build up complex shapes by adding/subtracting simple shapes. It's great for making configurable and/or precise components. It lacks the ability to easily add an artistic flourish though. So it's not for everyone, but it's perfect for me.

Jinja -

I like the way that it has "cavities" that allows for holding the wires. You never know when a wire will "finish" when you are wrapping it up. It makes me want the same idea in a circular form. That would lead to a larger volume, but I think a circle could lend it itself to a "cover" design, if you know what I mean. Not that you couldn't put an "Altoids" sticker on it right now.
