I wanted a DVD holder that didn't require a large first layer and that would function on a shelf without compromising strength. This is the 3rd iteration of that idea (the first two were not published and were more prototype focused).
This is a relatively simple model that holds 10 standard DVD cases and elevates them off of the desk where they're positioned. This has an open bottom to conserve filament without compromising strength or functionality. The lips at the bottom, while small, are more than enough to keep standard DVD cases from falling through the bottom. Keep in mind that it was designed to be full most of the time and does not hold anything less than 10 very well.
Please let me know if there's anything functionally wrong with the model or if you have any ideas on how to improve it.
Model size is 152x142x70
Added a modified version of the original file (Mk3.5). It should still fit 10 DVD cases while taking drastically less time to print (3.7 hours with 15.5m of filament). I marked the front with the camber instead of a fillet. There is no raised back. The outer perimeter is still 2mm thick while the base has been reduced to 1mm. I have not printed this version yet and probably won't because I prefer the first version, but I felt there should be a versatile option available.

I recommend printing with 4 perimeters and using line infill. The idea is that you'll get your strength from the perimeters while minimizing time spent on infill. You might be able to get away with 15% or even 10% on the infill setting. Infill on this really doesn't matter all that much.
