Pegboard hyperOrganizer is a massive update to my customizable line of pegboard parts. So be prepared to warm up that nozzle and get organized!
This customizable part generator will allow you to do almost anything you want, but here are some of the best features:
• generate rounded & rectangular parts
• generate pegboard pieces with your exact specifications (mm)
• custom peg placement with options for extra pegs
• make solid - for creating advanced parts in post-processing
• remove base - to provide a passthrough for tools
• offset from pegboard - for irregularly shaped objects
• angular cutaway - for accessibility and style
• works with any hole size & peg width
• custom fit settings - to guarantee a perfect fit
• remove pegs! - make parts NormWall-compatable™!
• instatweet your #hyperorganizer parts and make your friends grape jelly

How to customize hyperOrganizer [via Thingiverse]
parttype = select between Circular or Rectangular parts
R = Rectangular (default)
C = Circular
width = Width [R] / Diameter [C] of your part
depth = Depth [R] / Diameter [C] (MUST EQUAL WIDTH)
height = This is the height of your part (MINIMUM is ’32’ for 2 rows of pegs)
thickness = This is the thickness of your part (1.6 = good / 2.0 better / > 2.0 = very durable)
Optimal (Rounded) size for peg widths = 31.75 (32) / 57.15 (58) / 82.85 (83) // [+25.4]
pegs = span between pegs [0 = centered (one peg // 1 = 2 pegs // 2 = 3 pegs]
rows = span between pegs [0 = one row (one peg // 1 = 2 rows // 2 = 3 rows]
ADVANCED PART OPTIONS
solid = select between a hollow part or a completely solid part that you can modify further
N = no – hollow part (default)
Y = yes – solid part
base = remove base – to create a mount or passthrough for tools
Y = yes – solid base (default)
N = no – base removed
offset = creates an offset (in mm) from the wall, ideal for irregularly shaped objects
default = ‘0’
ANGULAR CUTAWAY OPTIONS
subtractangle = creates a cutaway with a custom angle, useful for accessibility and style
N = no – Cutaway is not applied (default)
Y = yes – Cutaway is applied with value from ‘subtractpercent’ (below)
subtractpercent = the angle that is cutaway from your part (will make sense when you use it)
// 1.0 = 100%
// 0.8 = 90% / 0.6 = 80% / 0.5 = 75% /
// 0.4 = 70% / 0.2 = 60% / 0.0 = 50% /
// -0.2 = 40% / -0.4 = 30% / -0.5 = 25% /
// -0.6 = 20% / -0.8 = 10% / -1.0 = 0% /
pegDiameter = 6.35 (default) for 1/4 inch peg holes
pegLength = 4 (default)
peg2peg = 12.7 (default) for 1/4 inch between peg holes, change this to make pegboards with custom/unique spacing.
pegFitpercentage = 3 (default) Creates a sphere at the end of the peg to ‘grab’ the pegboard. 0% adds nothing. 3% is what I keep for my pegboards. If they are not staying on increase this number for a tighter fit.
removepegs = removes all pegs, allowing you to stick your part anywhere!
N = no (default)
Y = yes – removes all pegs
morepegs = adds an extra set of pegs for increased stability, great for heavier items
N = no (default)
Y = yes – adds an extra set of pegs (left-right)
Material Used: PLA (Matterhackers Pro PLA - White)
Layer height: 0.20
Match the wall thickness to a multiple of your nozzle. I like to use a thickness of 1.6mm and my nozzle is 0.4mm so I use the following settings for solid walls (4 x 0.4 = 1.6):
Top Solid Layers: 4
Bottom Solid Layers: 4
Outline/Perimeter Shells: 4
Infill: 20% (for the pegs & offsets)
Speed: 40 - 50mm/s
Supports: Yes, Required - The more support the pegs receive the easier they will fit.
Skirt/Brim: Yes, Not Required - I use the following settings (Simplify 3D) to make my pieces stick nicely to the build plate with no warping and minimal post-processing:
Skirt Layers: 1
Skirt Offest from Part: 0.00mm (no spacing!)
Skirt Outlines: 10
It should be noted that if you normally don't print with or need a skirt to keep your pieces sticking to the platform you can probably remove the skirt entirely.
Post Processing: After removing the supports you may need to still sand down some of the pegs before they give you a snug fit. If you printed a skirt with your part like I recommended, use an X-ACTO Z Series #1 Knife to remove any of the remaining skirt. Additionally, you can use a lighter to 'tighten up' the plastic which may also help with fit, but don't go nuts.
