awww the nozzles where too high for me :( also not to be rude but i'm not a fan of the hinge whatsoever. makes closing it hard and I doubt it'll last long

Use the Customizer for that!

The customizer says Script timed out when I want to make a 6x8 box for 0.2 0.25 0.3 0.35 0.4 0.5 0.8 1.0

I tested it and have also problems with the customizer and can't figure out why it don't work.
Anyway, to customize the labels you have to download the scad-file to change them into the file because this is not supported in the customizer. Beware if you use more than 5 characters for the labels, with longer words they intersect with the lines.

Hey, is there any way you can add a scad option to separate the lid without a hinge? I am trying to print one with 11 rows, and with the lid, its too big for my printer bed.

With the current version you can already set the variable "hingeThickness" to 0, after that it is easy to split the two parts of the STL-File with your slicing software. In Slic3r just right click on the part and select "Split" and remove one part.

awesome, thanks for the quick reply!

I cant store 0.8mm or 1.2mm nozzles without having 8 or 12 rows? I dont have 0.3 or 0.5 or 0.6 or 0.7 or 0.9 or 1.0 or 1.1mm nozzles, either. How would I change the nozzle sizes?

Change
lblText = [ "0.2mm", "0.3mm", "0.4mm", "0.5mm" ];
to
lblText = [ "0.2mm", "0.4mm", "0.8mm", "1.2mm" ];
for a 4 row box

You'll need to use openSCAD rather than the customizer

It's nice, however I have many nozzles that are a bit too high (even some E3D V6), or even a lot (such as MK7/MK8) too high for the cover to close. Could you make a version with a higher top cover (such as 8-10mm higher)?

You can generate a box with the correct height. Just change in the Customizer the value "Nozzle Tip Height".
