3D model description

Currently I have created 10 containers of different shapes and sizes. All fit your used 'Pringle' clear flexible lids.

Unfortunately most of us cannot print a strong clear flexible pop-on, pop-off lid to seal a container.
Therefore with my containers all you need to do is up-cycle your used 'Pringle' container lids. (There is no need to use a lid if you want to use as a plant pot etc)

Created a stacking Ring for storing containers on top of each other:

Just for fun I thought the Hexagonal Container would make a nice Money Box. So I created a separate model for that.

Over the years I have collected many small metal tins for DIY items, unfortunately you have to open them to find the contents and over time they get RUSTY!

Whilst the plastic lids can be recycled. That requires more energy!
I think the lids are great to use as is, strongly support contents and to see instantly what is inside the container.
I have played about with the tolerance of the lid to get a tight fit.

The shapes and thicknesses of the containers make them robust.

I was thinking of the Prusa Mini when I made the 175mm tall cylinder, compared to the larger 200mm tall cylinder.

If you like my designs and feeling generous. Please consider a donation so I can continue to design and publish my models for free. See below next to creator. Thank you.


3D printing settings

No supports are required for any of the models. They all should be placed on the printing bed normal way up, with the open end at the top.

I have printed the containers in both PLA and PETG.

15% infill.
