My apologies for the thermal labels on the filaments this month. My printer I use to print the cards died and a new one is on the way.
Plain boxes will probably still be a thing for a couple more months as I have a lot more than I thought I did and I’m trying to get rid of them.
If you are still subscribed through Box Mountain, please reach out to me and let me know what it will take to get you to swap to the new site as it’s been 14 months and they’re really wanting me to get y’all over to my site.
Thank you! Hope you had a great holiday!

This is a water holding project, so you'll need to use printing methods to get it as water tight as possible to prevent leaking. These are my suggestions:
Print in PETG (PLA can absorb the water after a while and expand)
Print settings I used in mine: 4 Walls, 4 Top Layers, 50mm/s, Low Fan, 240C print temp
If you still have leaking issues, the cheapest way I think to seal is to get a cheap candle, melt it down and line the inside with a thin layer of wax. Epoxy works good as well, and I believe there are some sprays that can be used to seal.
Dragon Egg: I printed in PLA with 2 walls, zero bottom layers, zero infill. There's a setting in PrusaSlicer, I can't remember which (ensure vertical shell thickness?) that fills in the gaps at the top of the egg
In the link below the zip contains 2 versions, a plain version and a version with a dragon design.
Note: After running it for a couple days with either the egg or the cup, there was a lot of water being shot out the space between them and the base. I added a splash guard that so far has eliminated the rogue spurts without messing with the amount of fog released.
