I was pleasantly surprised that the cover fit so well in the notch the first time. I'd expected to do some sanding of the cover or even selection of a different thickness (worst case reprinting the box), but it worked very smoothly. On the downside, this print was incredibly difficult to clean up in terms of support material. Between the round exterior and the concave interior and the thin overhung notch, it was a surprising portion of project time. I know some 3D printers do water-soluble supports for removal. This is a great idea.

I screwed up the first version of this file in Fusion somehow (I think I saved it in the wrong spot) and had to re-CAD it. I'm learning a lot about Fusion workflow and how to streamline it and pick up on projects more easily. I also learned how to put one file into another, which was a good lesson to figure out. Overall if I were to do the design again, I'd make the case more interesting, high school boys' sense of style be darned. The Sculpt environment we learned recently could be really cool for this.
