What infill are you using for it? PLA or or should it be PETG due to the water ?

Shouldn't need much infill but if you're worried about being waterproof I'd increase your wall/top/bottom counts. Or post-process with some epoxy or something.

I didn't realize the horizontal supports went through the stacking insets. Will fix that eventually...

What size bucket is this designed to fit in? Thanks!

Sorry, just seeing this now. Regular 5 gallon orange bucket.

Would you mind sharing your source file?

I'd like to remix this for my filament holders to include a 608zz feeder (remixed from Atom 2020 feeder)...I'll put the desiccant under your grit guard.

Added the step file. Go to town!

I think this is actually cheaper as opposed to purchasing a legit one. A standard roll of 1.75 filament is only around $15-$17 from Amazon, a grit guard is about $8 from chemical guys; and according to S3D calculations this would cost $4 to make and took only 15% of filament from my roll with an ETA 10 hours. I think its better than waiting 2 days xD. Either way thanks so much for this!!!
