Are your amazing little minifigs drowning in storage? Are they displayed but lost on a giant shelf?
Display your little friends with pride with this modular storage box! Print as many as you want. You can have them sit on a shelf or a desk or hang them on your wall. (The wall mount shown uses just one nail for the center box. If your sculpture is balanced it will hang nice and secure from one spot. If unsymmetrical is your style you'll need two nails).
Note there are several stl files on here. Use one, some or all for your design. Play with colors! The dovetail fittings look great in contrasting colors.
main--use this for most of your boxes, it has the nail holes and dovetail slides and fit together great.
straight slots--dovetail slides only fit together one way! (male has to start in front). doh. Difficult if you want a solid structure. Use the straight slot box to fill in the gaps. This will make sense once you start putting them together.
smooth back--in case you don't want the nail holes
no back--just for fun or if you want to cut down the printing time.
Just a note, after making these I saw AJsRaceway's hexagonal minifig boxes (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3338499) and did a face palm. Hexagons! Of course! Ah well, maybe next time.
The only important part is to print on it's back with supports touching the build plate only. The supports should be as light as you can get for easy removal. They'll hold up the back of the slides and the nail holes. Remove w needle nose pliers and you're done.
Grab as much plastic as you can and pop out the supports for the nail holes
Pop! (I tried having the slides go all the way but it created a lip which needed a razor to get it off. Much easier with supports.
Hidden nail/screw holes with recess for security. Ignore the black lines, I think it's cat hair.
