Hi! Is it possible one side got uploaded more than once? I’ve opened both sides in Prusa Control and TinkerCad, but they look identical, with the lip and cutout to open. (And I didn’t see the four holes for the lid magnets?) I could bery easily be wrong; I’m just beginning printing!

(Also, which way do you recommend printing them—especially the caps? Prusa has started opening everything vertically, which is inconvenient.)

It sounds to me like you opened the same file more than once in either program. Downloading the files shows that they're all there for me without issue.

For printing orientation, that's easily fixable by rotating the pieces to the desired orientation for printing. The base should print with the magnet holes on the bottom, while the lid and caps should be printed with the large flat top region on the bottom. Also depending on the calibration of your printer you may need to enable supports so the threads on the cap and holes print well. You'd just have to clean them out after, which should be fairly easy given that the threads are large.

Looks like you are correct! Sorry about that. I thought I had been very careful with my labeling, but I guess not.

Thanks so much for the tips! Sometimes rotating is totally obvious (I can't imagine much would actually print vertically), but others aren't so much.
