Sometimes, you only need a simple box with a lid for your gift or to store your cookies. I designed one of these simple but functional boxes, perfectly optimised for 3D printing.
Update 2023: The box set is no longer on sale. Check out the “Box of Cubes“, an easy print and free download in various sizes. Thank you for all the support!
Check out the following models you may like:
The design has 4mm thick walls, which make it very robust, and it will look great if you print it with transparent or translucent filament and a special infill.
Free Sample Box
There is a free sample box you can download and use as you like.

Photos of a Real Print
The box in the following images was made on a Prusa i3 MK3s printer, using Prusament PETG Transparent, with 0.2mm layer height with the default slicer profile “0.2mm quality”.
For each size, there is a pair of STL files. All file names start with the project number,
LR2061 followed by the size
S stands for the approximate inside width and depth and
H for the inside height in cm. After this, you find the part number.
1 for the body and
2 for the lid.
Print these parts in the orientation shown in the following images:
For best results, use the following settings:
- Filament: PETG or PLA
- Nozzle: 0.4mm
- Layer Height: 0.2mm or lower.
I hope you find these boxes useful; these well-prepared models will save you some time. 😄
