Two Compartment Swivel Case.

Top piece is printed in clear MadeSolid PET+, bottom pieces printed in Octave ABS or PET. Tolerances were adjusted for a tight fit on my setup, I'm not sure how it will translate to other printers / plastics.

When I print the pizero_swivel_top file the top case is not solid.
So only the edges are printed and the rest is empty.

I use an Ultimaker 3 to print te top.


Am I the only one who thought this one looks like a Kinston USB memory model...? I have one and I though it was some sort of case... XD

Clearances are way too tight. Barely got it together and it won't move or fit together properly.. A little tweaking with the model and it should work?

what settings did you use? the base of the compartments stick to the raft and peel apart when removing.

I always print raftless, on a 2.5mm polycarbonate sheet, with a thin coating of glue stick, usually with 150-200 micron layers. Glass works too, but polycarbonate is flexible which makes the parts easy to remove.

Great stuff, printed perfect on a Makerbot Rep 2!

What settings/orientation did you use for the MB Rep2? I suppose support was on for the middle piece with the swivel being "off the plate".

Did not print using a maker it 5th Gen. Walls too thin on bottom of compartments.
