Can somebody make a small version? My printer is only 120x120x120mm

How thick should my walls be I am using cura? with a i3Mega.

3 shells should work fine!

why did you chose to design in imperial? just curious.

No reason other then I'm used to drawing in inches. I've been a custom machine designer for almost 20 years and since steel and other material comes in imperial sizes in the US it makes sense to draw in inches. I suppose I should probably shift my train of thought to metric when designing for 3D printing as its more common.

interesting, thanks for the response

What design program did you use?

I use Autodesk Inventor because I'm familiar with as I use it for my profession.

Brilliant concept wonderful design

Wow this is amazing! What infill % did you print this in?

Thanks! Infill is not to important, I think I printed it at 15%. The wall thickness that form the basket are thin so they are going to be solid if you have two or more shells.

Oh ok, I had assumed that the infil would be 100% just because of the way the walls looked, but 15% makes things much easier. Thanks again.
