Este es un porta brocas configurable. Se configuran en la variable sizes los valores de cada broca (diámetro y longitud). Jugando con dichos valores puede usarse para algo más que para guardar brocas: pinceles, lápices, bolígrafos, piezas, etc.

También dispone de tapa para poder cerrar la caja,

El archivo scad está bastante comentado para que se pueda personalizar.


This is a configurable drill bit holder. The values of each drill (diameter and length) are set in the sizes variable. Playing with this values can be used to store more than drills: brushes, pencils, pens, parts, etc.

It also has a lid to close the box,

The scad file is quite commented so that it can be customized.

Do you mind if I make a "remix" to change some of the text in your SCAD file to be in english?

It looks so great and i really want to use it but I can't speak spanish. Could you provide a scad-file with english comments or at least some sample files like the screenshots you posted?

You need follow this steps (i am adding links to my repo so the file is different than the one i uploaded here because in repo all files are separated but you can search for 'Valores personalizables'):

1) Set lh to your layerHeight (0.3 by default).

2) Add as many rows as bits you have to sizesvariable (first value is the diameter of drill bit and second value is its length, in milimeters.): sizes = [ [ 10, 133 ], ... ];

3) Set showBox = 0 if you want the cover or showBox = 1 for the box.

4) Optional. Set cut = false; if you don't want the notch to facilitate extraction of the drill bit.

That is all. If you need more help, please contact me.
