This is the first design of my KaptonCaddy! Just place your roll of tape on the base, and slide in the caddy core. It snaps together and becomes a handy carrying-case for your allen wrenches, nuts, bolts and other sundries. It has two swivel drawers, holes for tools and a basin up-top for bigger stuff.
The base is now part of the body. The tape roll now acts as a sleeve to hide the drawers. If you store any over-sized things in the top (like calipers) you may need to remove them to lift the roll off.
Test print #2 on its way!

Awesome idea!Â But is there anyway you could make one that has another level for a drawer, in order to fit an 8" roll of Kapton tape? I think it would just mean making the Body.stl file have 3 levels instead of two, but I could be wrong.
I've never had much luck editing STL files, or I'd give it a shot myself.
I love your Kapton caddy! Very handy indeed with lots of space for storage! Two suggestions if I may, one is to add a radius or fillet edge on the bottom of the tray where the post goes through to make it sit better on the shelf, I used a knife and it sits better now. Second would be to tighten up the tolerances, I ended up with some slop in the connections, they seem a little large. I like that you can take off the top and the trays but they fall off too easily but with the roll of tape on those tiny issues don't really matter, once again a great, very printable, very practical and clever design!
