Makerbottable toolholders by Webca Jul 5, 2010

Featured Thing!

Description

Here are some miscellaneous toolholders that can be scaled to fit practically any tool.

I was in the market for something like this myself, and was looking around searching for toolholders. The problem however is that there ar alot more different sized tools than there are toolholders that match, so then you end up with something that just looks awful and doesnt fit 100% to anything.

So regarding this project the goal was to make many different shaped toolholders that could easily be customized to fit any tool.

And again a big thanks to the makerbot crew for the plastic that made this:)


(Just an FYI - Everyone of my toolholders are printed on my full size makerbottable makerbot thingiverse.com/thing:3285)

someone needs to make a makerbot pegboard mount

Beautiful work.

I'm wondering how strong the clip-type holders are. Do you have to drop the tool in from the top, or does the plastic allow you to snap them in from the front without breaking? This is really cool.

The plastic allows you to snap them in;) ABS is really strong..

How about adding protrusions on the back that allow you to hand them on peg board/

Webca on Aug 9, 2010 said:

As i dont have a peg board this is really up to someone who would like to make a derivative for themselves and then share it with the Thingiverse community :)

My only enhancement recommendation is printing the tool size on the holders if possible. Sure, you know a 1/2" drill bit from a 1/4", but someone who you are asking to grab a tool for you probably wont. Not really a big deal, just a thought.

Webca on Jul 13, 2010 said:

Its a good idea, but i just put labels underneath. (as you can see in the pictures)

I am currently working on a new project so i dont have the time to do any enhancement to this one, but this is something that anyone on thingiverse with a makerbot could do by just editing the files i uploaded;)

Where did you get the design software and cost? I am a aviation instructor looking for class items.

I use Autodesk 3Ds Max

It costs about $3,500.. so if youre just getting into 3D design i would recommend a free software;)

Webca, More super awesome work! Keep it up!

Erik on Jul 6, 2010 said:

HEY, THIS WAS ON MY TODO LIST!!! Well, I would hardly have the time. Check!
I love collaborative production. And you're a real fanatic. Awesome :)

Also cool that your printed 3D printer is your production machine!

Now I need to order bright red ABS too... I only have dark red :(
