3D model description

This is a box in a cube shape with a lid that twists in. One version has a circle pattern on the outside and one version has holes so you can peek in to see what's inside. The holes go all the way through so this version is not for powder or very small things that might fall through. File for plain box also included. Plus I did several lids! The different sizes in the photos are just scaled-up versions of the original which is 5cmx5cmx5cm (with lid).

I wanted to make a cube shaped container with a threaded lid that twists on. And I wanted to print without supports. There are bottled shaped containers to allow for the transition from rectangular to twist cylinder but I didn't want a bottle shape. I still needed the transition though since I wanted to print without supports so I put the transition plane inside. The inside of the box is actually bottle shaped even though the outside is a cube. I had to sacrifice some of the inside volume but only a little.

3D printing settings

The box prints with opening up without supports. The lid prints without supports with the thread side up. I have scaled the files up with no problems though scaling down may be harder because the threads may be thinned out too much.
