Manhattan Pegboard Collection for 3D Printers
Get organized! The Manhattan Pegboard Collection for 3D Printers is a group of modern, customizable parts that allow you to generate bins, mounts, holders and even shelves for nearly every object that you may want to have neatly hung on a pegboard.
As a NYC native, I never had ‘extra space’ in my home. So when I purchased an Ultimaker 2 3D Printer ten months ago, I knew that I wanted to use it to improve my life. By mounting modular pegboards strategically throughout my home, I have been able to create custom mounts for all of the little things in life and place them exactly where they need to be. I now manage to keep ‘everything in its place’ because everything has a place to go!
Parts in the Collection
• Customizable Holder (2-Peg) for Pegboards
• Customizable Holder (4-Peg) for Pegboards
• Customizable Rounded Holder for Pegboards
• Pedestal Shelf for Pegboards
• USB Cable Holder (6 Cables) for Pegboard

Customizable Holder (2-Peg) for Pegboards
This customizable holder has two pegs centered on the rear and is ideal for being used with small, low weight bearing objects. Additionally, if you eliminate the base of the part (done by modifying the openscad file), you can make mounts such as the hairbrush mount pictured.
If you would like to hold items of a larger weight, consider using the Customizable Holder (4-Peg) for Pegboards, which adds a second row of pegs for extra stability.

If you feel that this item has improved or simplified your life, please consider a small tip:
Depending on a variety of factors your print results may vary! Some of my prints slide into the pegboard peg holes without issue, and sometimes it requires a bit of extra force. If you find that the pegs are not printing well, make sure your support structures are adequately supporting most or all of the entire peg (depending on your settings).
I print my pegboard pieces using an Ultimaker 2 with an Olsson Block running a 1mm nozzle. The prints in the included photos were printed using Verbatim PLA in White. With this setup I can print durable pegboard parts at a 0.5mm layer height and 2mm walls with reasonable speed.
