Step 3: 3D Printing

3D Printing (You can find the parts as an STL in the attachment!)

If you are new to 3D printing, have a look at the Instructables BEGINNER 3D PRINTING CLASS.

I converted the created components in an STL-file in Fusion360 and edited them in the Slicer.

I selected the following Slicer settings:

  • Layer 0,3mm
  • Infill 20%
  • Support (only necessary for the CBoxConnect object)
  • Skirt

I used Vertigo Gray PLA from Fillamentum with 210 °C Extruder and 55 °C on the Build Plate.

Example (see below) => ~1h / 4,38m / ~13g / ~0,48€

A fully equipped box then consists of 13 parts

  • 4 x Bottom Corner
  • 4x Top Corner
  • 4x Mid
  • 1x Center

This means for 6 boxes I had to print 78 parts.
