3D model description

So a friend is doing a series of Star Trek related geocaches and asked me to make one. This is the result. Although it took about forever to get it printed. I am using ABS and had really severe warping issues. I ended up buy printing both of the larger items with a substantial brim in order to get it to stick. The cube was the worst as it has very little surface (10mm) touching the bed. It failed around 6-7 times. It failed the most when using a raft, and even using a brim I had to enclose the printer in my case with a large cardboard box.

To use the box as a geocache you will need 10mm x 2mm round magnets like this https://goo.gl/jby2LB
You will also want to use either rite in the rain paper or another container, bison or dna tube or a film canister, inside as it it is not water tight

Print 8 of the retainers as there are 4 spots on the lid and the box for magnets.

thanks to Simakrima for the great design. that was easy to print!
