NOTE It appears that Thinigiverse is STILL having issues with it customizer functionality so I am also going to also upload an STL for a small bottle and you can use your slicer (or other app) to rescale to fit your need. Also, it might be time to do a write in campaign to Thinigiverse to FIX the Customizer functionality (here is the link to write them: https://www.thingiverse.com/support )! So if you do a download you will get both the code as well as the STL.

So I was cleaning up the shop and came across of these pill bottles I was saving as I hated to see them just fill up a landfill yet what to do then them? Well I have a Shark Tank moment (yes I just coined) and came up with nifty design that Mr. Wonderful would call me dead to world for not giving to him for pennies on the dollar but guess what? I am providing you the STL right here and now to print off on your 3D printer!

Can I ask you for a favor? It's simple, please subscribe to my Open-SCAD Channel (see here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNfTwYpWGkDcGhvzj4RoRhQ ) to help me keep making these great customizer apps for you guys! :-)

Also check how we made this here: https://youtu.be/8hK157Im2NI as well as We also printed this out on our BIQU Magician Lipstick-Sized Delta Rostock 3D Printer(see more here: http://amzn.to/2sBRxL1)

Now this is a customizer (so lets hope Thingiverse has this fixed) and you adapt this just about any pill bottle size! Oh what do you do with it, store things what else:-) Yes we makers can be part pack rat so you can maximize the space in each bottle and I know you can't get your fingers down there to get the screws (or what ever) out, so you just pull up on the top and bingo-bango everything comes up!

If your looking for a new printer, check these out as it helps me to keep creating great new designs to post here on thingiverse!

I am I missing something here or you trying to promote you own YouTube channel?

You promote two youtube channels, an instagram account, amazon and gearbest affiliate links, and two different web stores in almost everything you post. Glass houses, so on, etc.

umm what happens when all the other compartments are filled and you try to get a screw out? The rest of the screws are going to fall everywhere :/

Ah you can pull it to highest level of any one compartment and in general will put you close enough to fish out what you need (even with my fat fingers :-)

Looks a lot like my pill divider: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2717430

Pill Bottle Dividers

I was going to remix this with a rotating disc at the top to isolate one compartment at a time, but you got that covered :)

I guess great minds think alike :-) I just wish Thingiverse would fix the customizer function...
