Este es un porta brocas configurable. Se configuran en la variable sizes los valores de cada broca (diámetro y longitud). Jugando con dichos valores puede usarse para algo más que para guardar brocas: pinceles, lápices, bolígrafos, piezas, etc.

También dispone de tapa para poder cerrar la caja,

El archivo scad está bastante comentado para que se pueda personalizar.


This is a configurable drill bit holder. The values of each drill (diameter and length) are set in the sizes variable. Playing with this values can be used to store more than drills: brushes, pencils, pens, parts, etc.

It also has a lid to close the box,

The scad file is quite commented so that it can be customized.

muchas gracias por compartir este diseño! recién estoy mirando openscad y es una muy buena forma de usarlo para aprender... y de paso ordenar todas las "mechas" del taller.

Qué bien que te sea útil!!

En mi repo tienes bastante código en OpenSCAD que te puede ser útil tanto para aprender como para hacer diseños.

Do you mind if I make a "remix" to change some of the text in your SCAD file to be in english?

If you only want to translate comments in file for helping people, may be you can send to me the text and i will be update the section in english of this thing with your detailed instructions.

I just changed some of the comments. I translated the top couple of lines so people know what is changed and a line to tell them where to go. Then I translated the custom settings area to tell people what changes does what.

It looks so great and i really want to use it but I can't speak spanish. Could you provide a scad-file with english comments or at least some sample files like the screenshots you posted?

You need follow this steps (i am adding links to my repo so the file is different than the one i uploaded here because in repo all files are separated but you can search for 'Valores personalizables'):

1) Set lh to your layerHeight (0.3 by default).

2) Add as many rows as bits you have to sizesvariable (first value is the diameter of drill bit and second value is its length, in milimeters.): sizes = [ [ 10, 133 ], ... ];

3) Set showBox = 0 if you want the cover or showBox = 1 for the box.

4) Optional. Set cut = false; if you don't want the notch to facilitate extraction of the drill bit.

That is all. If you need more help, please contact me.
