Lowpoly Heart Shape box on @Thingiverse #3DPrinting #ValentinesDay

herosmall

This is a simple low polygon heart shaped box. It’s a two piece snap-fit together container that can be used for storing treats, LEDs, components, screws or anything special. It’s just two parameters thick and can be printed in under 15 minutes (depending on your print speed).

This was printed using a single extruder. Different colored filaments are switched during the print job. Using 1 layer for the bottom and 0 layers for the top, you can see through the first layer when it’s printed in translucent filament. The triangles and honeycomb patterns are not drawn in the CAD model but actually generated by the slicing software. You can use different infill percentages to create high or low density patterns.
