Click Open in Customizer and either opt for one of our preset shapes or draw your own. You can also adjust the size of the box.


Print with standard settings, .2 layer height gives a nice mix between speed and finish quality. If the box has sharp corners, print with a raft to keep it from curling. If the top doesn't fit well on the box, adjust the tolerance in Customizer.

how did you do this?Can you give me instructions step by step

Not sure what you are asking for. Do you want to know how to customize a box or are you asking about how the customizable object was programmed?

To make your own customized box, click the "Open in Customizer" button above and then play with the controls and press the "Create Thing" button.

If you are interested in making your own customizable object, you'll need to go to openscad.org and download the software. Then check out http://customizer.makerbot.com/docs and http://customizer.makerbot.com/best_practices for info about how to make a customizable object.

Can someone make a Cancer Ribbon box?

You can! just click the "Open in Customizer" button above and then draw a cancer ribbon in the drawing widget :D

Any particular reason for using functions to hold the shapes, rather than a variable?
Only thing I can see is that they are like a constant, but that hardly matters.

The reason that the shapes are contained in functions is that I'm using a tool that we wrote to export paths and models from Blender to OpenSCAD's polygon and polyhedron formats. That exporter uses functions because they are a cleaner/more modular way to reference the data when including/using it in separate files. It also gives us some more flexibility when exporting shape keys. Here's the Blender addon if you want to try it out: https://github.com/graphicsforge/io_mesh_openscadhttps://github.com/graphicsfor...

It's a great way to "compile" a mesh or path into an OpenSCAD script for use in Customizer (since we can't currently reference external .dxf or .stl files from Customizer).

Thanks for the great question! :)

The shape tool seems very hard to use, can I not pick a point and move it? I can only get it to draw hundreds of points in an organic shape but I can't make anything like the simple star it defaults to.

These are awesome! I made a coffin one for Halloween and everyone said "Nooo you cant use 3D prints for food containers!" lol

Well...we spend our life drinking from plastic bottles or eat factory prepared food without knowing really what we are doing...i doubt that putting some dry candies inside PLA (even if it is tinted PLA with the universe knows what,,,,) is going to kill us faster...
This is clearly awesome Makerbot team. Keep this way, despite you being part of the big Stratasys monster :)
Thanks a lot

That's what i keep saying!! lol
