If you need desktop organizer that will print on a modestly-sized (Prusa) print bed and you want to organize the same things I do, this is the desktop organizer for you.
Perhaps, like me, you're part of a generation that still uses "envelopes" to send pieces of "paper" that have words "written" on them with a "pen" to friends and creditors. And, maybe, also like me, you draw the line at "scotch-taping" pieces of paper to my monitor, preferring Post-its.
One of the problems with habits like that is you end up needing a place to store the raw supplies, preferably close at hand. Like on your desktop. Which seems to require something placed on the desktop where these supplies can be gathered and, you might say, organized. So here it is: (another) desktop organizer.
OK, I've had a bit of fun with this Summary. I realize that very few people have the need to organize the same stuff I want to organize. But I have enough of an ego to think that this rather individualized and unchangeable collection of containers might be exactly what someone else needs.
** The envelope container should work for most envelopes. Of course, you can put whatever fits in there. Doesn't have to be envelopes.
** The pen/pencil holders are on the small size. I find I really only need a few different writing implements at hand and everything else that would find its way into a larger pen/pencil container will be just fine in a drawer somewhere else.
** For the memory card tray, I made it for what I use - microSD cards (and an SD adapter). Again, I only need a few at hand - the rest are in a drawer. I'm considering making a cover for it, but haven't decided. [update: I decided in favor and posted a cover - two versions: one plain; one engraved with a pattern.]
** The "junk" tray could be for stamps or paper clips or whatever. The bottom edges are rounded a little to make it easier to scoop out small stuff.
** Yes. I regularly use both of those Post-it sizes. These containers hold the 3x3 -inch and the 2x1.5 -inch Post-it pads.
I used .32 for all posted pics
This is an easy, if somewhat long, print. It took about 9 hours on my Prusa MK2/S at stock settings and a .32mm layer height. The only issue I experienced, and only once, was a corner that curled. I have provided a solution in case that happens to you:
I'm putting up two versions of the model: one with pads and one without. Long flat things want to curl at the corners when printed. This model is not bad about it, but it can happen. A brim is a great help, but is really only needed at the corners for this model. I've included a version of the model with pads on the corners to help hold them to the bed. They work well and require minimal cleanup compared to a full slicer-provided brim.
If you have a problem with corners lifting when you print this organizer, these things can help:
Make sure your bed is clean and oil-free.
Specify a brim when you slice (or try the provided corner-pad model)
Increase the bed temperature. I went from 55 to 60 for this PLA model.
Keep the part cooling fan off for the first 10 layers or so.
You can print the memory card tray cover, top-up, as presented, without supports. Most slicers will use bridging parameters for first layer of the top of the cover and most printers will do a very good job bridging this small gap (and the layer is not visible, anyway.) Check the slicer's preview to ensure the bridging layer is across the width of the cover instead of the length.
Because of the thin walls, I recommend using rectilinear infill.
I used 3 top layers, but don't mind the infill grid showing on the surface a bit. Use 4 top layers (or finer infill) to hide it.
I used .32 layer height for everything and am satisfied with the results. The pattern will probably look better at a finer layer height, but everything else is just a flat wall. Try it if you want, but at .32 it took about 9 hours to print on my Prusa MK2/S on the default settings.
You may have noticed a chunk missing out of the top of the brown-colored organizer. This was caused by an older installation of Prusa-edition Slic3r that "repaired" the entire section of rim into vapor. I missed seeing it in the preview.
Here are the colors used for the organizers shown in the photos:
Paramount 3D - "Iron Red"
Paramount 3D - "Battleship Gray"
Century - "Brown"
It looks like a bunch of individual pieces jammed together because, for the most part, that's what it is. I used OpenSCAD to generate each part individually and to put them together as a finished organizer. While I can certainly post the individual pieces, I didn't design any connection mechanism and there are very few ways to arrange them in different patterns and still have the resulting organizer look acceptable.
The blank front of the envelope container looked like it needed something, so I embossed a pattern on it. The pattern came from freepatternsarea.com: https://www.freepatternsarea.com/designs/circle-ornament-vector-floral-damask-free-pattern/ (Lots of nice patterns there, so check them out.) Many formats are provided for each pattern on the site. I downloaded the png file and converted it to an OpenSCAD-friendly dxf format using Inkscape and polymaker's OpenSCAD DXF Export plugin: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:14221
This might make a good Customizer project -- it's all OpenSCAD and almost totally paramaterized (and there are a bucket-load of parameters). I'll have to give some thought to how to let the user choose items and arrange things using the current Customizer interface.
