TL;DR: For Simplify3D users, please only use the new Version2 of Balcony-Top-1X-V2.stl file. It works with all slicers.
The first version wasn't optimal to be sliced in Simplify3D, and resulted in gear teeth not properly attached to the gear body. Special thanks to Eliasen for debugging this issue with me.
About this Thing
A mechanised box with 2 "balcony" drawers. The drawers open with a 120º rotation of the lid.
- Sliding parts tolerance: 0.25mm
- Fixing parts tolerance: 0.15mm
- Balcony-Drawer-2X.stl (Print two of this)
- Balcony-Drawer-Floor-2X.stl (Print two of this)
All the files are in their correct z-up orientation. This would avoid the need of any support (except Balcony-Drawer-2X.stl which still needs a small 5mm tall support for best results)

Only 1 out of 5 STL files needs support
- Allow supports for Balcony-Drawer-2X.stl""
Recommended: Remove the Burrs
If you get plastic burrs (the small edge around the first layer), strip if off with a box knife for precise fit of the moving parts.
Remove the supports
Drawer-2X.stl needs small, only 5mm tall supports for best results. Remove and clean out the area with a box knife.
