HINGED CASE FOR EARPHONES Remixed by Natoshi Sakamoto << Tips are very welcome!
This stuff is thought to be printed in two pieces that snap together. This avoids the need for supports and allows for an excellent finish on both the lid and the bottom (especially if you have a glass bed or a similar smooth printing surface). Plus, you can also print the lid and box in different colors. I also made the lid catch mechanism just a tiny bit tighter to reduce the risk of it opening spontaneously.

Print slowly and apply only the minimum of cooling needed to maximize the strength of the print.
To assemble the hinge, push it together from the inside (small recesses are provided to facilitate this) as shown in the Post-Printing section below.
If you have difficulty opening the box, press it at the sides (lengthwise). This will make it pop open much more easily, see image below.
