I printed KGeorge's original pill box and, while I got it to work, I thought it could use a few... enhancements.

For starters, and most obviously, I have made it double the width. With the original, I could only fit three tablets. Having been used to using an old Anacin tin, I needed more storage!

Next, I resized both pieces to allow for clearances where the two halves meshed. In the original, I found that I had to size the bottom half up by 102% to allow the top to even think about sliding on.

Third, I resized the magnet holes. Once again, I added the necessary clearances, but I resized them to fit the 4mm x 2mm magnets that I had in stock.

Finally, and this will probably only apply to me, but I cut two recesses into the bottom to allow for two additional magnets. The purpose of this is this... I carry a front pocket wallet with magnetic closure. My old Anacin tin, being metal, would stick to that when I put them both in the same pocket. I wanted this pill box to be able to do the same thing, so... hence the additional magnets. Most people will leave those out and it won't affect anything one way or the other.

NOTE Due to either a Thingiverse bug or (more likely) shadowbanning, my models no longer show up under the [Newest] listings. If you want to see more of my models, please be sure to 'follow' me.
