Hi guys. I’ve had my cube for under a month and my bathroom is short on space and incredibly hot so it’s getting slightly misshapen trying to squeeze it on a soap dish with my Pears bar and the heat from the windowsill. My son and I have a 3-d printer and a quick search later and boom, a container printed and done! I need to reprint the lid as I printed it without support and its lost a bit of the outer rim but its not a bad effort!

I guess so if your interested, just need to fix the lid before I’m happy to sell them on! We’ve a few colours, white, metallic silver, red, navy blue and rainbow. I need to order some black. I’ll try and work out a price, but I’m sure it won’t be too much as it doesn’t use a huge amount of printer filament.

Great stuff, let me know when you're ready to go!
Thanks.

Looks great! I’d be interested in one too (way better than the original box and foil that I’m keeping it in at the moment)

sounds like it’ll be a few of us interested in it haha
I did think a few of you might! I’m going to retry the lid tomorrow afternoon with a ‘brim’ support. If that works I’ll start taking orders! I’ll try and get some photos of colours we have to give you an idea of what we have at the moment. I wasn’t sure about the white but it’s a nice contrast.

Trying it the lid again. There’s meant to be a thin rim round the edge of the top, and it had a loose layer or so. Nothing noticeable but wouldn’t sell it like that. Hopefully I have sorted it.

These are some of the colours we have at the moment. The blue will likely be slightly opaque like the red baby yoda head! We’ve not printed with it yet. We also have a Matt grey rather than metallic. I’ll be ordering black as well soon.

The second lid was better on the outside but the inner was rougher on the inside of one edge! One more attempt to get it right! I can live with either version but it’s not as finished as I’d like. I’ll post later and show the issues but I’m sure I can sort it, 3-D printing can be a little tricky on the fine details and its the edge of the outer square rim of the lid that’s causing a few issues.

The rim around both currently has issues. It’s not my design and will search the name of the person responsible to credit them from the website thingiverse. The issue is the millimetre edge/rim on the top. I’m going to increase the print quality tomorrow, to see if I can make it better the, 2nd was almost right but still had a loose edge.
