Improved Auto Coin Sorter
(Please also check out the new, further improved, and coin-roll suitable version here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3467834 )
Remix of Auto Coin Sorter for All Currencies by youngcat
The original is very good, but the dovetails are a bit flimsy and the coin holder is not positively aligned, so I was having quite a bit of trouble with coins getting stuck or falling out. So I fixed it :-)
- Simple and robust lid-type top board that stays perfectly aligned and keep the coin holder reliably in place, too.
- Extra length of coin ramp to make feeding the sorter easier
If you have already printed an old Auto Coin Sorter:
- Print only the top board of the Improved Auto Coin Sorter, it will fit your existing sorter as a drop-in replacement.
An automatic coin sorter for many currencies. See also http://youtu.be/7F2fIF9PNBk for a short demo video of the original version.
To store a coin, you may release a coin from the rightmost top, and it will slide down the hill and go into the right tube. To get a coin, you may pull the whole rack out and take out any coin.

The top board on FDM printers is best printed with supports.
It might need to be oriented diagonally to make best use of the available print surface.
Advanced method without supports: Slice top board horizontally, in the z-middle of the flat board, then print both halves lying flat and glue them together.
(If that sounds complicated, simply have a look at the included file "Improved Auto Coin Sorter EUR - Split Top Board.stl" :-)
