Can you add a version with an o-ring groove instead of the v-channel? Option to print a flex o-ring might make this waterproof in 'most' scenarios.

I did try it, I can post it. The problem is the clips can't provide that much static force, and the printed o-rings are pretty hard. If you really squeeze it down after putting the lid on, you may get somewhere. I'm not sure it will much more effective than the well fitting flat surface the v-channel produces. Note, the small gap in the v-groove should reduce the chance of water wicking in. Cutting a soft silicon o-ring may be effective. (Also, if being able to separate the top and bottom halves of the new "Rugged Waterproof Box" is important, you can build it with 4 clips.)

thx so much, hadn't even seen your other box. For anyone else that ends up here without seeing the other design, it's this one: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3338826

I've now added these files.

and thank you for adding the o-ring option for this one

No problem. Let me know how you get on with printing the o-rings. I suspect performance might be very filament dependent. I used TIANSE TPU, it works but I think something softer would be better.
