I needed some drawers for organizing resistors, capacitors and other small components. I wanted the resistor compartments to have cut-outs on the dividers to make it easier to get the resistors out with fat fingers, and I wanted a lot of customizability in the drawer divider organization. You can also customize the dimensions heavily.
The design is optimized for minimal plastic usage, hence the grid walls for the main chest and the thin dividers in the drawers.
All print with no support at 0.3mm layers. Since all the walls by default are thin, infill percentage makes little difference. I printed in PLA.
The design uses (and bundles) my Bezier library, which is particularly convenient for designing symmetric things (in this case, the cut-outs on long walls).
Update: Outer walls (including floor) can be thicker than inner walls. The defaults in the SCAD file are like that now, which makes it possible to print drawers with even less plastic. Also, by default the handle has no floor now.
