Following on from the success of the Nested Birdhouse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:116288), I thought I would push the nested small footprint concept a little further, with a printable case.
Use it as a lunchbox, purse, briefcase, clutch bag, backpack, fashion accessory etc, you decide.
Print 2 off without support, it's all in the geometry.
Attach the two halves with cable ties or PLA rivets.
The hole in the catch is for the addition of a lock, carabiner or bolt etc. You can also attach a shoulder strap to the handle or carabiner.
Scale up or down (clearance disclaimer) to suit :
Print cube size for a single half 100 x 105 x 96
Print cube size for two halves (nested) 143 x 130 x 96
My Print Settings :
- layer_height = 0.2
- perimeters = 2
- top_solid_layers = 2
- bottom_solid_layers = 2
- fill_density = 0.25
- nozzle_diameter = 0.35
- filament_diameter = 1.75
