A little snap-closed box

Post by zemlin » Mon Aug 29, 2016 9:02 pm

Roughly 3" x 3" x .33" when closed. Clear PETG. The hinge is printed .4mm thick (two layers) The first layer has the outline of the company logo and the second layer bridges over that to create the texture on the emboss - doesn't show real well on this image. The box functions quite well. Printed on Kapton over glass. Yeah, the open box has a burned glob in it.

It's a proposed idea for storing a wear part for a capping machine - we'd have it run on a soft injection mold. The part has sharp edges that are easily damaged in storage and handling.

Does the part have any features you can index to? So you can drop it in and have it retained with a gap around the cutting edges?

There are a wide variety of parts that will fit in this box - too much variability for features like that.
