Containers composed of Triangles
by pmoews, published
Here are 4 containers and a lid constructed entirely from triangles.
They can serve as holders for paper clips, rubber bands, or other small stationery items.
Supplied are small, medium, large, and extra large containers. The lid fits the medium and large containers. The lid can also be used as a small tray.
Stl files are:
The openSCAD program that created the files is make_container.scad.
The boxes and lid print most rapidly if done directly on the build platform.
To create the boxes 36 small triangles were first assembled into a large triangle. Six of the large triangles were combined to make the hexagonal base and three were combined to form each side. While the openSCAD code is not fully parametric it contains instructions for making smaller and larger boxes.
