Description

I had a hard time customizing the box, so I took most of the ideas and rewrote the OpenSCAD code from scratch. (And learned a lot about the limitations and undocumented parts of the language...)

The holes are now defined inside a list, so you don't have to define them twice. There's still some features missing from the original.

Great job on adding the posts. They look terrific.

I finally added support for posts in my derivative! And rotatable cutouts. And semi-recessed cutouts. (Thanks to SparkySD for getting me off my butt)

Thanks for making a cleaned up version of the code, yours is a pleasure to read! It was becoming annoying to use my own but due to encroaching deadlines I couldn't justify spending the time required to fix it up.

Kudos :)

Instructions

Determine the size of your package, and where the holes need to be.

Modify the scad file.
* Change the INNER_{LENGTH,WIDTH,HEIGHT} and TOP_HEIGHT variables to define the inner dimensions, and where the top/bottom split is.
* Change the WALL_THICKNESS, LIP_HEIGHT, CORNER_RADIUS, CURVE_SIDES variables to tweak the box thickness, the fit, and how curvy (or not) the sides are.
* Define the holes (rounded rectangle or cylinder/cone) using a list.
* Holes can be partway through. [2011-07-14]
* Define posts (filled or hollow). [2011-07-14]

If the box is too big, you can generate just the top or bottom (GENERATE_{TOP,BOTTOM} variables), or have it render with both halves put together (STACK_HALVES variable).
