A tool holder with slots for SD cards, hex wrenches (aka allen keys), screwdrivers, pliers, side-cutters, scissors, pens, etc.

Although I keep post-it notes, a scalpel and digital verniers in it too, I wouldn't recommend doing so as their slots are not designed well and could do with improvements.

Derived from Replicator thing:23520 by MangoT21, except this one if free-standing. SketchUp design also uploaded.


NOTE! This is a LARGE print - the raft actually went over the edge of my build platform for this one.

Note that RepG took a very long time to slice this (over one hour), perhaps because I used a higher fill than I normally would.

The print itself was a LONG time on the Replicator (12-18 hrs) on the default RepG and 5.5 Firmware. I'd definitely encourage use of the Sailfish firmware instead, given the long dimensions involved you should see a massive improvement in print time.

wouldnt it be easier to print it upside down?

I presented it in the most recognisable orientation. But yes, flipping it twice will have the top down on the build platform which would improve the finish too.

It sliced in 3 minutes 18 seconds on Slic3r... (30% honeycomb infill, 10 mm spaced support...)

Wow.  Here's hoping that kind of improvement becomes mainstream.

 You should be able to use Slic3r with the Replicator as well...

My print haven't completed yet though, had some steps skipping...
