Large, half-height bin for a pair of U-Wings.
This is part of my Harbor Freight X-Wing collection.
I'd like to thank Matt a.k.a. ryanvito for his help in pulling this design together.
Basically I sketch the outline on paper, measure out a set of points to make a polygon around the outside of the ship, and then code that up in OpenSCAD as a first step in the blank. Then I measure the depth I believe the bin will need to be to nest the ship just right, and typically create a cutout in the bottom to save some plastic.
The "bintools" code is then responsible for creating a test outline that is cheaper/faster to print to see if things are right, and also to place the outline in a bin (in this case two of them).
Ryanvito did the test prints for this one, which is always a help. Thanks!
