I know many of you, like me, have lots of little small parts that can be hard to organize sometimes. I thought that being able to print your own parts bin would be awesome because you could customize to fit the exact requirements. You can also emboss or engrave the part name or logo or whatever right on the front for easy finding.

The ridge at the top lines up with a cut in the bottom so that they will stack nicely and should be perfectly printable. I also implemented nice curved bottoms to make getting those small resistors a little easier.

I wish I could make it a little bit easier to customize for other people. I'm not sure if there's a format I can save it in that will allow you to edit features directly (instead of going through .stl).


Print out a few.
Customize and paint in pretty colors to add life to your workspace.
Then stack 'em.

So I uploaded a very similar design in sketchup's format for people to modify themselves. If you want the nice curved insides you'll probably have to use the pro version temporarily to get the fillet. Also I had a little trouble with engraving the text so I decided to just emboss it.

I know there are some very cool provisions in Sketchup for making objects editable and/or parameterizable while leaving some features intact. It's just more work for the designer to implement.

You can, for example, scale the bin up or down but keep the lip unchanged... or scale the size of the bins while keeping that rounded profile the same (not have it stretch).

awesome. I'll look into that now.
