Heart shaped boxt00tie

A simple geometric heart shaped box. Composed of a square and two half circles.
Use it as a jewelery box, to put a ring in or just as a toy.
The lid is flush on the inside and outside with a hidden stepped groove to keep it on.
The size is easily customised in the openscad file: all you need to specify are width, height and wall thickness.
Width is the distance from one of the flat sides to the tip of the opposite round side (eg. the width of the square that the heart would just fit inside).
The openscad file should be nice and modular so you can reuse say just the heart shape if you want to.
If you only want the lid or the box just use the scad file. Ask me for assistance if needed!
Thanks to blddk for testing and printing this, the blue print are his pictures.
Printing: if you print with concentric top and bottom fill the fill should nicely accentuate the heart shape. With my settings pronterface says filament required: 1769.3mm (12.6cm3) and approx 40 minutes to print for the attached stl. Custom sizes will vary of course!
