This is a simple cylindrical container that has been threaded to accept a threaded cap. I does print and it does work. I printed several on a Makerbot Replicator.


I printed this with the standard MakerWare settings for a single extruder Makerbot Replicator.

Slicer: Miracle Grue
Infill: 10%
Layer height: 0.27mm
Number of shells: 2
Extruder Temp: 230

UPDATE I accidentally uploaded a container without a bottom. I have since uploaded the correct file. Sorry about that.

Can you make a customizable version of this?

Printed fine @ 10X on slic3r 0.9.7 w/RH on Solidoodle 2.

What is this a box for ants!  I'll just scale it up.  When I open the files in ReplicatorG neither the top or the bottom have a top or a bottom.  I mean to say they don't appear to have the top surface and bottom surface.  

However when I open them in netfabb basic the cover has a top surface but the container part doesn't.

I created this object while working in inches - not millimeters  You will have to scale it up to get a usable object. I also accidentally uploaded the container part of this without a bottom. Thanks to your comment, I realized what I did and re-uploaded the correct file. The screw top cover should be fine though. I'm not using ReplicatorG anymore so I'm not sure why it looks like that. I use the newer version of MakerWare that you can download from the MakerBot website and both the top and bottom look fine in that program now. 

OK, I'll ask:  Any chance you parametrized it in Openscad?

Do you like Miracle Grue?

Nope, this is not parametrized. I created it in AutoCad 2007 and it doesn't have any parametric capabilities.
As for Miracle Grue - I love it. It slices at least 50 times faster than Skeinforge. Most of my models are sliced in less than a minute with Miracle Grue, and I used to have to wait up to 30 minutes for similar models to slice in Skeinforge.
