I made a 'Screwable Jewelry Box' or as I like calling it, a twisty box

I finally got the printer running to the level where I felt confident running another copy of this part off. Let me tell you, it's a cool item!

The patterning from printing make the seam between the two halves near invisible when printed in clear PLA.

This particular version is done at 150% size of the larger of the three available at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:413 because the 'normal' large size won't hold all my Catan pieces for 1 color. 125% may be a better size, as there is a lot of room left over in this big one.

I did this at .2mm layer height with a cooling fan. Took maybe 6 hours for both halves?

Printing a twisted box.

this thing is big. and you can’t see the seem that separates the two halves.

A twisted box full of parts.

Sweet! This twisted box could be more fun than a barrel of monkeys! Each Catan part set will have a matching color box.

There you can see the line between the two halves.
