Added this comment to nameek's modification of your object. I'm not sure what the proper etiquette is (I'm new to printing and Thingiverse)... I guess I should have sent it to you since you were the original creator.

"I was about to design my own, but checked Thingiverse and found your and dottom22's great design already available. Just a suggestion... Make the cap deeper so that the filament sticks out when uncovered and is easily grasped and pulled with fingers... say... filament sticking out 10 mm past the tap once cap is removed."

What about a version with just the half of the tap? I think the chamber would still be big enough and print time decreased.

Great idea! I'm actually working on several versions. This one is more universal so it would fit most boxes with thick or thin walls. Also the depth of the filter cavity (threaded part) was to increase the distance from the outside opening making it a bit more resistant to air transfer. I may work on a shorter one and see how it fairs. Thanks for the input!
