Caverna Storage Solution by wtwerner Apr 27, 2014

## Description

Here's a set of storage trays that hold all the components for the board game Caverna. I used plans posted by Seb Charbonneau to BoardGameGeek.com: boardgamegeek.com/filepage/99534/caverna-foamboard-storage

I'm in the middle of printing this lot, with a slight extra cutout for the deck of cards (since mine are sleeved, and do thus not fit otherwise). In my slicing for ABS with 0.25 mm layers and 10% infill, they ended up consuming:
A1.gcode: filament used = 17066.0mm (120.6cm3)
A2.gcode: filament used = 17495.1mm (123.7cm3)
A3.gcode: filament used = 17608.9mm (124.5cm3)
A4.gcode: filament used = 18813.2mm (133.0cm3)
B1.gcode: filament used = 13617.2mm (96.3cm3)
B2.gcode: filament used = 12384.4mm (87.5cm3)
B3.gcode: filament used = 12847.7mm (90.8cm3)
B4.gcode: filament used = 11890.7mm (84.1cm3)

This gives a total of 860.5 cm3 of filament, which for ABS translates straight to grams (density of 1.01 g per cm3). If PLA, that will increase by approx 25 % since it's density is around 1.25 g per cm3.

I will thus consume approx 86 % of a 1 kg roll which I in Sweden payed 300 SEK (approx \$40) for, i.e. a cost of 258 SEK (approx \$35) for all of the pieces. If you use cheaper filament, the cost will of course lower (my local shop only stocks properly branded Velleman rolls; strategy tax of living outside of the US).
Can you make smaller pieces? My printer cannot make things bigger than 12x12x12cm.
It really depends on the material, but I use Weldon solvent to weld the PLA.

## Instructions

Download A1-A4 and B1-B4. These are each of the quadrants for the two trays. Print them up with 10% infill and no support, sand the edges (if necessary) and glue them together. Weld-On 3 or 4 work really well to solvent weld PLA. Please be sure to post a picture of the finished project if you can.

#### Size

Can you make smaller pieces? My printer cannot make things bigger than 12x12x12cm.
Can a MakerBot Replicator 2 handle that bottom tray? My local service provider indicates they can only handle 284mm. What are the exact dimensions?Thanks,
Scott

Wait. I see it now. Each tray can come in 1 piece or in 4 parts.

You'll have to print the split-up versions of each of the trays. I cut them into quadrants A1, A2, B1, B1, etc. That makes for 8 smaller prints in total that you glue/weld together.

Finally got these pieces back. If I'm not mistaken, the trays in the photo above were glued. What kind of glue do you recommend? Any tips on getting the trays nice and sturdy?

how on earth can i get this printed cheaply? most places seem to charge like \$200-300 per piece and your models are 8 pieces...

Really, you need to print it yourself or find someone in your area to do it for you. I printed it using PLA filament and I think the total material cost was about \$20. A good place to look are makerspaces

Wow, this is awesome!
Thanks!!!
