Containers Composed of Squares
by pmoews, published
They are derived from thing:77843 Containers Composed of Triangles. Square boxes are easier to construct; the openSCAD code is simpler and more parametric.
Seven stl files are supplied. Their names are derived from the size of the basic motif, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, or 6x6; the length of the side of a square in mm, 6, 8, or 10mm; and whether they are a full or half height box.
Stl files are:
box_3x3_6_half.stl - 38 x 38 x 21 mm
box_3x3_6_full.stl - 38 x 38 x 38 mm
box_3x3_6_fullx2.stl - 38 x 38 x 75 mm
box_3x3_10_half.stl - 62 x 62 x 33 mm
box_4x4_6_full.stl - 50 x 50 x 51 mm
box_5x5_10_half.stl - 102x102 x 53 mm
box_6x6_8_half.stl - 98 x 98 x 51 mm
The openSCAD program that created the files is make_sq_container.scad.

I remember when I was collecting seashells that many of them, such as the olive shells and clams, buried themselves in sand, and could be found by scooping sand into a strainer, which would let the sand go through, and stop anything larger.
I wish there was something like this customizable to the extent that you could specify its dimensions, and let it fill in the grid accordingly.
(Though I wonder how you could print something like this on most 3D printers due to the overhang/supports issue anyway. All those unsupported verticals, unless the grid size is very small, are going to sag.)

The openSCAD code is partially parametric and an extensive range of sizes can be constructed.
