This is a holder for Games Workshops current paintpots, but will also hold P3 paints. The back pegs are designed for a pegboard with a .25 in gap between holes and a 6mm hole. On the back there is a larger raised area at the base of each peg this is so a 1.54mm thick magnet can be glued in place to help keep the bracket flush to the metal pegboard.

Flaws in my design, this makes for a tight fit when you have a bunch of these on a peg board, I have smaller hands so it isnt a problem for me but the amount of space between racks might need to be increased for p3 paint pots or if you have thicker fingers. Second, the pegs might be a bit too big, its kind of a tight fit but I got them into the peg board no problem.

Keep in mind I've had my printer for three weeks at the time of this posting and learned fusion 360 to make it, Im sure there are a large number of ways to improve this thing.

I dont plan on making an edit to this for dropper paints, a entire new bracket needs to be designed for them to make it space efficient.

I used a raft to make sure it all stayed flat , but supports are a must.

Do you have the original scad or F360 file? I need to increase the size of the pot holders for some of my airbrush paints which are about 34mm in diameter.

if only this would hold my Testor paints

What peg board do you have? I'm looking to purchase one.

Hey everybody! I've just published a remix of ShadyRabbit's bracket to hold dropper bottles. Check it out: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1444977.

Thanks again to ShadyRabbit for this great design!

Dropper Bottle paint holder for peg board

They came out great and fit my pegboard with no resizing!

Do you plan on posting these for sale somewhere? I posted a picture of my make on Facebook and some friends are asking if they could buy them.

Are you positive on those measurements?

1/4 inch and 6mm are very close, but that would mean the distance between the pegs and the width of the pegs were close to the same. It doesn't look like that... 0_o

I bought a 16 inch square peg board from home depot and the pegs are just under 7mm, but the distance between them is about 18.5mm.

I'm positive in the fact that they fit my peg board. Your pegboard could be different , I don't know if there's a universal size. The file uploaded is the one I used if it won't fit your pegboard remix it.
