This is a fun and functional storage box/ presentation box for 15mm diameter glass vials. As the lid of the box opens, the vials will be raised up out of their holder for a great presentation.
PLEASE READ: There are 2 versions of this print, one is the "original" and the other is the "Updated" version. I have only printed the original version of this design and can prove it works. I then made some improvements on the "Updated" version but have yet to print that version for myself so there may be issues I'm unaware of. The updated version has a larger lip to support the inner holder for added stability, as well as screw holes to positively lock the holder in place.
Printed Part List: NOTE: to print the updated version, substitute this list with any parts labeled "updated"

Note: lengths are ball park suggested, screws just need to be long enough to secure into place without passing too far out the opposite sides. See post printing for more details.

The Vials: I purchase mine from a local science surplus store so I can't link to an exact version. The vials measure approximately 15mm in diameter and 57.3 mm tall including the lid. You will need to adjust the CAD files to accommodate different sized vials. If your vials are simply shorter or taller than what I used, you can simply modify the height of the pusher accordingly.
