This is the first Thing i have uploaded to Thingiverse so any tips or advice is welcome!

Right what we have here is a Small tool box for the mendel max. I dont have much storage space in the printers current location so decided to design a handy little box with back pockets for small tools.


I printed this model with...
2 perimeters
2 horizontal shells
40% infill

And it came out ok i think.... I have included the dwg so please feel free to change the model as much as you want.

This design has a 20.5mm gap for the extrusions this was fine with my print quality if anyone requires a larger gap let me know and i can upload a stl with any required size.

Did it overnight, took 6 hours. Really glad it finished, it's the longest print I've ever done. (It could have been 3.5, but I wanted decent quality) However, to mount it on my folgertech kossel I need to cut a slot, but its not a big deal.

This is such a good idea. I'll definitely use this on my folgertech kossel.

Does it hold well? There doesnt look like there's any mounting holes (But they can easily be drilled.) It'll be hanging up quite high.. It'd be pretty bad for it to fall.

I've had my MendelMax up and running for a couple weeks, and this is the first "large" print I've done by a wide margin.  I'd just added a fan and was wondering how those wide bridges would print... came out amazingly well.  The underside sagged a little bit, but the tops are flat.  (And if Slic3r had bridged a third of each section at a time, they'd cooled enough that it wouldn't have sagged at all.)  Printed at 0.4 layer height and 0.25 infill, took close to 3.5 hours.

Nice design... the only regret I have is that, having printed it, I realize I'd like to have it deeper.  The slots aren't tall enough for most of the stuff I want to put in them to really stand up right.  I'm thinking I'll drill holes in the bottom of some (or all) of them so that my hex wrenches and such will fit better.  But it's certainly going to be useful... I can give my wife her flowerpot back now that it doesn't have to hold all my tools.

Whew, that's a good looking print! Man I really need to finish my MM (he says, having just spent the past two hours trying to get his dumb TOM to print).
