Be sure to have a decent infill percentage for rigidity. I printed at 50% and it worked fine.
Use as big of a brim as you can to help stop the corners from warping.
Model is 7.5″ by 7.5″ so make sure you have a printer bigger than that.
Set your initial print speeds slower for the first few layers especially with the lid to make the vent holes clean.
When you open the STL file in a slicer such as Cura and it appears really small you will need to scale to 2540 to convert from mm to inches.
