I've taken the companion cube deck box idea and made the following updates:
- Replaced the hearts with the MTG mana symbols. The top symbol is Phyrexian Mana.
- Expanded the deck box capacity to fit 100 double sleeved cards (at the expense of the tiny dice holder)
- Added a spacer at the bottom of the deck holder area to increase the height at which the cards sit, making it easier to remove them from the cube.
For those wondering why I chose the Phyrexian mana symbol instead of the obviously missing Red mana symbol - its because the Red mana symbol is boring, and kind of ugly.. I don't play much red, I guess.
I have uploaded a version of the lid with a thicker rim/border. I had to file it down just a bit, but found that it was much better at remaining closed than the original sized lid (from the non-remix part). I've included both. If you don't mind doing some post-processing, print the thicker border and scrape the edges down (safety first please!) until you are satisfied with the lid fitment.
I've added a size-comparison photo between this deckbox and the GOT style geared opening deckboxes. Those have a very very hard time holding 100 double-sleeved cards.
Added photos of the cube after finishing. Was going for a rusty prop from a sci-fi movie...
Actually using the FlashForge Dreamer, but thats no longer an option to select...
On my dreamer I had no problems printing with no supports except on the lid rim - where I had that first layer with no supports droop a bit. Adding supports on the main cube under the rim will help with final assembly. Having no supports did not affect the printing of the mana symbols.
Had no visible issues with lifting or warping. I use a heated bed, printing on a PEI sheet using the Purple glue stick between prints. A quick wipe with a damp paper towel (damp with water) to smear the leftover glue stick around works sometimes too.
