Hey everybody! Who likes Box and Lid?

Golly, I know I do!

If you do too, here's a Box and Lid for you!

Note: I gave the lid a little wiggle room in the .scad file, so experiment if you want a lid with a tighter fit. The smaller wiggle_room is, the less of it there is. Default wiggle_room = 1, so you might want to set to wiggle_room = 0.75 or something.


I provided several .stl files for ease so you could:

  • Print Box and Lid together
  • Print a BIG Box and BIG Lid separately
  • Print a SMALL Box and SMALL Lid separately
  • Print a HUGE Box and Lid together
  • Print a really boring, lame, euclidean Box and Lid

Hi, I tried to printed Box_only 95x95 with 170% resize, but 3D printer started printing not on printbad but aproximatelly 10cm above to open space. Where is problem? Thanks for hepl !

printed at 50% scale 0.4mm layer height on low settings with 100% infill took 13 minutes looks good!

if anyone wants this printed contact me at [email protected]
please no spam.

how did you model this? did you have to do anything different considering there is no thickness in traditional 3d? trting to make box that will have electronics lights...

Box and Lid!!! Thank you, I used this to make a set of nesting boxes for my niece's birthday, I don't have all the pics yet but you can see the big one here..

What is the infill,shell and layer? I made one with ABS ,but 4 faces are all crap.

Looks like the scad file is missing an include. "boxes.scad".
could we get it posted. please and thank you

I wish there was an I tried to make on button lol. I tried twice with the same result as in the picture. Something is up with my Ultimaker and simple shapes. Anything complex like a falcon no problem. I think the main axis shift in the bearings and brass bushing might get nudged as well. Anyone else have this problem?

Umm here is the pic

Had to download http://svn.clifford.at/openscad/trunk/libraries/boxes.scadhttp://svn.clifford.at/opensca... to get this to work. Which I assume you guys already had, but in case anyone else needs it, there's the link.

I made a 40x40 box and top from the openscad file and changes the wiggle_room from 1.0 to 0.05. with a small amount of fileing I was able to get the top on very tightly. I'll try 0.075 next for the wiggle_room. The openscad file seems to have a problem rendering the rounded 40x box and lid. the box show up as a solid. I have not had time yet to see if I can diagnose it. Nice box set. Love the 40x tight fit one I greated. 8-)

and a very fine box with lid it is...
