Hey Fitzterra, can you add to the customizer the ability to set X and Y spacing between holders? I have a set of large self-centering bits and I need to leave empty spaces to fit them all :)

Hi @papinist.

Sorry, been a bit busy, so could only get to your request now. Anyway, try it in the customizer now - you can set the gaps between holes, and also few extra things. Check the update info.

Hope this is what you were looking for, or else shout if you need anything else for this thing :-)

Fitz this is EXACTLY what I am looking for, also with more features! Absolutely perfect, this thing will be extremely useful for many use in our shops.
Let me offer you a beer (if you set the paypal account in your thingiverse account, I'll make a tip!)
Thanks again from Italy :)

Hey @papinist.

Glad this works for you :-)

I'll accept your virtual beer, thanks ;-)

Any chance that you made it for the Thingiverse Customizer? I'm not good with openscad (or any other cad software FWIW)

@papinist - I was looking at doing this a few weeks ago, but then life got in the way :-) I'll give it a bash as soon as I get a moment.

@papinist - You should now be able to use the customizer to change number of rows and columns, height of the footer and height of the holder. There is also a scaling factor to help with printer tolerances, but it may be better to leave the scaling at 1:1 and do any scaling with your slicer should you need it on your printer.

Thank you very much, I will try it when I have some time :)

Parametric - as it should have been in the first place! Great job :)

Just adding to an already very useful tool, thanks ;-)
