Parametric Wearable Container with Slip-On Cap
by 2n2r5, published
I only had enough time to print out 2 sharpie containers and a small box. The default dimensions will produce a perfect sized sharpie case. The inside and outside container shapes are independently customisable for those of you wishing to use this to house a tool or pen. I was thinking of making one for my exact-o knife. It will give me a bigger and more ergonomic handle. How about a pillbox key chain or maybe even making a glow-light. How about attaching your pocket watch to your new single cigar carrying case?
This thing is being listed under household containers but needs its own category for just being awesome!
One drawback of making such an awesome thing is that the text may not work for all configurations. Low side counts specifically will not work well.
* Fixed Containers so that low wall counts work better
* Added ability to make 3 sided containers
* Small fixes in the code
* Fixed bug where sphere would protrude below bottom of container
* Changed wall width of loop to be indepently controlled

I did a ReMix - feel free to take the lines that add the bevel and add it to your OpenSCAD script. Maybe even make it selectable if it bevels the edges or not!
That's great. You should take a picture and post it as a made item. I will work on the beveled edge. I have an Idea for that already. Thanks for the comment.
My wife wanted a nice compact container for her Ego-C electric cigarette so I make one out of white PLA. It was difficult to open/close and she was afraid it might scratch the Ego-C so I made the hole 0.5mm bigger and printed it in Soft PLA (rubber-like) and this works GREAT!
Only thing missing is that the inside of the cap and outside of the bottom should have a 45 degree bevel to aid in closing the container.
