I'm opening the SCAD file in version 2015.03-2 and I can see the code for the lid but it only renders the box. Any ideas why this is?

Edit - Found it. You have to specify it at the beginning of the code. Just like the comment next to it says. :/

Thanks for this great and scalable design, I hope you notice the tip ;-)

When I open you file in OpenSCAD I have following error: WARNING: Can't open library 'utils/build_plate.scad :(

This might be the file you need

Build Plate Library for Customizer

This is one of the best coded openscad files I've seen. Great work. Thanks for the design.

Where do you get your green filament? I just love that particular lime green hue!

What kind of magnets do you recommend (they look like rare earth magnets in the picture), and where can I find them?

Any small cylindrical rare earth magnets should work. I prefer the 3mm (diameter) x 3mm (height) magnets for hinges. For larger boxes, I'd probably try 4-5mm diameter magnets.

There's a bunch of sellers on amazon (A friend of mine is selling some at http://www.amazon.com/s/url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=chockalottahttp://www.amazon.com/s/url=se... , but I think the 3x3 cylinders are out of stock). Just search for "rare earth" or "neodymium" magnets.

Thanks. I'll be sure to order from your friend when I'm ready to do so. :)

You are cranking out the designs today! Great stuff.
