I love keeping my electronic components neatly organized so I can find them when I need them. When I have a jumble of bags of parts I forget what I have and it's a constant waste of time weeding through everything.

I've been meaning to modify the old drawer box for a while now to add more tiny drawer slots to efficiently hold very small components like smd parts, ceramic caps, and tiny screws. I modified the model to support 5x2 slots in a drawer and also made the divider wall between the slots thinner.

I recently received a batch of ceramic caps divided into 50 different values. 10 slots per drawer worked out perfectly for the size of ceramic caps I have.

Currently there is a bug rendering when I try to make the number of rows 3 or greater and I get the following message:
WARNING: Normalized tree is growing past 200000 elements. Aborting normalization.

Enjoy and please share any pics and comments about organizing ideas for your own small parts.

Yup, being printed on FFF it's unusable because it's just too tight

I've printed the 4 section tray with the holder w/ holes but it didn't fit well, I was able to put the tray into the holder but then it was impossible to take the tray out. Maybe the tolerance of my printer is causing that, I'm not 100% sure about that. Anyways I will print the holder another time but scaled a little bit. Thanks for the design!

I didn't have that problem in my print. Thanks for the feedback!

By replacing NOFILLETS with FILLETS, I was able to get a good rendering for 3x5 drawer
" roundedBox([slot_width,slot_depth,DRAWER_HEIGHT+DRAWER_CORNER_RAD],INNER_FILLET,FILLETS);"

Thanks for the design :)

Would you be able to upload the STL files for the drawer with 4 sections and one with no sections/dividers in it?

Sure. I just added them.

Also, keep in mind that you can use the customizer on thingiverse (see the "open in customizer" button near the top right) to customize drawer size and export out an stl.


wheres the file for the box these drawers go into? Am I missing something?

You can change the part to cabinet to do this in customizer (or openscad).

I also uploaded 2 versions of the cabinet:

  • Parts_Tray_Holder.stl
  • Parts_Tray_Holder-holes.stl
