Stacking box

3D model description

Think inside the box, you can never have to many boxes.
Print a few of your own stacking boxes to keep your things in order may they be screws, nuts, bolts, toys or other miscellaneous things.

Just like our Candy Bowl we designed this box specifically for testing 3D-prints with large-bore nozzles. The result is a semi-transparent box 3D-printed at 0.8mm layerheight with a 1.0 mm nozzle.

Even though it is possible to print this box at higher speeds, we kept it down to achieve a high-gloss shiny surface toghether with a all together higher quality print. This shows very well in the two attached pictures with the lower part being printed at a higher speed than the top part. Not only will the result have a higher degree of transparency but the print quality will also be alot better since the plastic can be extruded and cooled down at a lower rate which is needed when extruded with a larger size nozzle.
The outer dimensions of the box is 120x120x80mm. At around 20-30 mm/s it took less than two hours to print.

We have kept the geomtry as simple as possible to make it easy to print. To get rid of the layer-change zipper-line we used vase-mode in our print settings.
To make the box strong and achieve optimal transparency we 3D-printed the candy bowl using taulman 3D t-glase (PETT) filament.
