Summary

This is something I'm very proud of. It was one in fact on a list of the first ideas I had when I decided to print in 3D. Its an organizer for spray paint caps.

I've been working with spray paint for a while now, and something I've always wanted was a way to organize my caps so i didn't have to hunt them down in a bag or a box. It takes a lot of time and effort. So I thought I could just figure out a way to hold them together into a clip or something. I ended up with this design.

I liked it because I managed to accomplish my goal using only two unique parts, and I went through seven revisions of this project before I was happy with the fit and function, but pretty happy with the overall design so far.

So let me know what you guys think.

Instructions

  1. Print 1 each High Capacity Base. I used a layer height of 0.2mm and no support. (I call it high capacity because this was like the seventh iteration of the base that I tried, and this one yielded the highest amount of storage.)

  2. Print 18 each Cap Snap Clips. Again I used a layer height of 0.2mm and no support.

  3. Now assemble the Organizer. Use some needle nose pliers to help you snap the clips in place as they fit snugly. They work like the buckle on nylon webbing, by snapping into place using three horizontal holes.

  4. Now load it up with whatever caps you want. I like to organize them by increasing thickness.

  5. Enjoy the added efficiency that comes with not hunting through a bag or box of caps.

Believe it or not, but the first thing I stumbled upon was your Cap Spacer - I guess I clicked on "random thing" but I saw it and thought, now here's a chap who's really dedicated to painting - I mean who else would care about the spacers for the Caps? But this thing is REALLY nice! Nonetheless I can't stop thinking if you couldn't make it as a clip that would fit on your standard can...
Anyways, a very nifty design.

Thanks for checking out my design, and I'll think about how it could be attached to other things.  Thanks.
