This is a remix of schlem’s Mini Pelican Case.
Although intended as a mini prop, this proved practical as a tiny pill box for temporary use, which looks cool as an added bonus.

The original model proved to be rather ‘dirty’ and nearly impossible to edit. Hence I rebuilt most of it to get rid of all the gaps and awkwardly connected facets, which enabled me to design an even smaller-than-mini version. The original model has an inside volume of 34x26x12 mm and can hold five SD cards. The mini model has a volume of 34x22x11.25 mm (but is too small for an SD card).

Another improvement is that this version has sensible tolerances for FDM printers, and an improved hinge that is less likely to detach.

Update 2017/02/18: I added a ‘v3’ version which has a much improved hinge design that is easier to print and much less prone to breaking. This hinge will also easily turn across a range of 115°. The v3 files also come in a variation with built-in supports. The v3 version is definitely the one you'll want to print, but I left the v2 models available.

The v3 version still is not an easy print though, and will require a well-calibrated printer if you want to end up with a usable result.
