I did print it, and think it is a good overall idea. But there is a lot of room for improvement. It is a long print, easily 20+ hours depending on the settings, with a thick unnecessary arm to reach the printer's foot. If anyone has time to dedicate to this, some input: replace that long arm for a much simpler positioning arm, which could be printed separately (reducing the risk of a failed monoblock print). Leave more room for general tools (certainly your typical 3d printer working desk has more day-to-day hardware)... Trade plastic weight for extra room (really thick walls between the slots)... Anyway, hope this is not seen as criticism, just some ideas.

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate your input. This was literally a one and done thing for me that fit my needs and I decided to share it. Feel free to change it however works for you. I put the tool base where it is to leave that vent open on the side of the case. Not sure how else you could get from there to the foot with a shorter path? You could make that part thinner for sure though. Definitely wasn't 20+ hours to print for me though. Closer to 12 or 13. I just let it run while I slept.

Hi 24v, nice reading from you. It's a good thing that you shared your design! While reading my comment, it may have sounded a bit harsh, sorry - did not mean it. As I said, I did print your creation - and it's right there on my desk as the tool box.
I've just recently started to explore and try Thingiverse parts, not sure what is the usual workflow here. Once the parts are .STL, there is not much that can be done to change it, is there? At least not on my "Solidworks universe". Maybe if the editable solid parts are shared as well, others can make changes...
I would consider a separate "under the printer" rod IF there is the desire to restrain movement of the box along the side of the printer, with some sort of fitting to the "main box" - in a way that you could actually place the tools closer or farther from the front of the printer "as desired". And on the box itself, would make the openings a bit bigger, or try to find more room for "other generic pieces"... I just feel that there is some "plastic filled" regions that could have a practical use.
All the best on your designs - I'm sure you enjoy doing that as much as I do.
Cheers.

Hi. :) I wasn't offended, hope it didn't come off that way. Hard to express emotion in text I am not sure what other kind of file to make that you can edit? I use Tinkercad and am very new to this. It has an option to export a .obj file, would that work?
