It would be good to have a lid on the top one.

These boxes look awesome, unfortunatly I don't have a large nozzle (yet), I have a standard one 0,4mm. Do you think that will work, or do you recommend a bigger nozzle? (I already ordered the taulman 3D t-glase (PETT) filament.)

Only drawback I can think of, is that it's not paramterised, so we can create our own sized boxes as needed.

Nevertheless, awesome work!

It's been more than a year since your comment but now I just found my way to print 1mm wall with 0.5mm nozzle. So your 0.4mm nozzle can print 0.8mm wall, I think it's sturdy enough.

I printed one today with the standard 0.4mm Nozzle on a Prusa I3 Mk3, and its really flimsy. Its okay for a scrap filament box, but I don't think you can stack it. 0.8mm nozzle seems to be the right way here

Nice set !
Could you do a remake of it with 4 handle instate of two ?
..
... I need to do that... This will be my new filament tester.

I've printed a bunch of these things...thanks for the upload! The only thing to be careful of is if you scale them down too small, the bottom will break apart from the rest of the box when removing from build plate. I've never had that problem above 50% though. Painting with a clear glaze makes even the really small scaled prints strong.

Thanks PowerScissor for your comment and appreciation!

If one 3D-prints the solid version of our box there is a simple way to fix the thickness of the bottom part. Using the following customised 3D-print settings would make it possible to define the wall-thickness-values.

  • Shells/perimeters: 1, 2 or more (as desired)
  • Infill: 0%
  • Top layers/thickness: 0
  • Bottom layers/thickness: As many solid layers, or distance as desired

Thanks for the recommendations, I will have to see if I can accomplish the same thing with my printer. I don't have as many options as some of the more expensive models out there.

We downloaded and installed the Dremel3D and can confirm that even with the advanced settings you won't be able to print is the manner described by us earlier.

Nevertheless there is another software you can use to run your Dremel Idea Builder. It is called Simplify3D and it will give you almost endless possibilities to define your 3D-prints. (http://simplify3d.creativetools.se or http://simplify3d.com)

Wow, thanks for the information. I was a little disappointed by the lack of print options. I wouldn't have thought a non-proprietary program could be used to print on the Dremel...so I will definitely give that a try.

We are glad you appreciated this information. :) Regarding 3D-printing for power-users, Simplify3D leads the way.
