Peg solitaire / hex bit holder
I seem to have too many screwdriver bits in my toolbox, so I came up with a neat way to organize them and make a fun board game at the same time.
To play the game, you really only need to print a single half (either 'bottom' or 'top' will do; they are just mirror images of each other). However, printing both of them will allow you to actually store the bits, and also have the space to put away the pegs removed during play.
You will also need eight miniature neodymium magnets (like these ones, for example) and screwdriver bits to use as pegs - thirty-two of them.
This thing is customizable - the parameters are:
- spacing between bits (smaller - more efficient storage, larger - easier play), and
- the dimensions of the magnets to hold the two halves together (to match whatever you have on hand)
Any plastic should do (I used PLA)
.2mm layer height
16% infill (adjust to your liking)
Stick the magnets into their slots, while keeping track of the polarity of the magnets (so they attract rather than repel each other). You could also glue them in place if desired.
