Hamper Stool Project, Part 4

I have printed all of the parts for the top! I will need to drill holes to secure the hinge, but I know that will not be a problem, mainly because I drilled a hole through one of the mistake parts I made earlier.

All of the top parts were printed from two stereolithography files. Parts 1 and 2 were printed twice and Part 1 was mirrored and printed twice. The two GIF videos below show how to mirror in Cura and Repetier Host.

It seems to me that I will need more filament to complete the bottom parts. The roll is decreasing more quickly than I anticipated. I have about 1/3 of a wheel remaining. I think I can make at least two bottom parts before I reach the end. I ordered a roll today and I am likely to receive it on Thursday. That means I am will not have the frame together until next Sunday.
