Description

Organize your morning and evening pills in this aptly pill shaped organizer. There are two compartments per “pill” for each day of the week. The lids have a sun and a moon in addition to the day of the week to assist in organization. The main body is printed all as one piece, and then there are seven individual lids that snap into place and can be slid to reveal either the morning or evening compartment.

 

*Bonus* Single unit has been added with two lid options - blank or sun & moon (no day of the week text) !

 

Design Features:

  • Easily customizable - because the lids are loose, you can choose which day to start your week with (the 3DM model has the lids grouped into their own assembly separate from the main body for easily making the lids a different color from the main body)
  • No additional parts needed - the lids are designed with a friction fit to snap into place and do not require any magnets to stay closed
  • Single plate print - all lids and the main body fit onto one plate, even when printing in two colors by object (~4 hour print in PLA)
  • No printing support required - all parts were optimized to not require any support while printing on the X1 Carbon (134g total)

Size & Capacity:

  • 243.5mm long x 70mm wide x 23mm tall (~9.58" x 2.75" x 0.9")
  • I can easily fit 7 pills of varying sizes in one half compartment, or 4-6 if just filling it with medium/larger pills (if folks are interested I can easily maker a taller version that could hold more pills)

Print Setting Variations (for PLA on an X1 Carbon):

  • Standard 0.2mm layer height with the 0.4mm nozzle on PEI textured plate
  • Switched to “adaptive cubic” infill while in “global” settings
  • Selected “print by object” while in “global” settings
  • Customized variable layer height settings separately for body and lids to get enough detail in chamfered mechanical areas without increasing entire print time significantly by using a fine layer height for entire print

Assembly & Use:

  • Sliding dovetailed lids will require a little force to “snap” into place the first time (lids should slide smoother after a few rounds of opening and closing to break the mechanism in)
  • There are protruding chamfered areas on the underside of the lid that keep it from just sliding open whenever - this means there is some small resistance to slide the lid into the “open” position
  • A stopper is located on the center bottom of the lid to keep the lid from sliding too far open - thus, only one side of each day is open at any given time
  • Please keep in mind that there is no “child lock” on this design and it is not meant to keep medications secure - for personal use at your own discretion!

This is a great print. It is very large but great for those who have several medications/vitamins. I have now printed two color variations. Both printed without issues on my Bambu X1C with AMS. Designer is correct. Tight fitting lids during assembly with an overly satisfying snap when they go into place. You will need to work them a bit. Overall, I recommend this print. Filaments used: CookieCAD PLA: Vanilla chip (lids) and Mint green (box) Overture PLA: Grey (lids) and True Red (box)

Sometimes it hard to open the days. It needs a bit force for the first times. Then it works easy,

I love your colors! I should add variations for less than 7 days of the week. Thanks for the idea!

the concept is great and the top design is well done. the top sliders are a bit tight and hard to move

thanks for the review! I’m refining another lid print profile with looser tolerances, since quite a few folks have had a similar experience with the lids being on the right side.

Minor details on the base. Second print came out better just by adjusting the height.

Thanks for the feedback! I might need to go back and adjust the base radius a bit. I haven’t had this issue yet, but a few other folks have had a similar experience to you. Thanks for the feedback and photos!

It's a pretty stout model. Takes a lot of work to loosen up the lids. But at least your pills are in zero danger of falling out accidentally.

Stout is a fair description! Thanks for the feedback. I am working on a lid with looser tolerances from the get go. That way there can hopefully be an option for folks less concerned about a super secure container and more interested in ease of opening.

You’re right, it is roomy! I will be adding a print profile for a much smaller version soon, so hopefully it can work for more people. Your print looks great, thanks for the review!
