Here's a bin for your tiniest of treasures! It fits in the palm of your hand and will hold precious items. Decorate it with markers and prints to look like it lives on the street. The dumpster prints in several pieces all without support and needs a little glue to assemble. Simonkangiser.com


Printing the dumpster is fairly straight forward. Because of the small nature,the casters and bar work best printed with a brim. If the piece has a number in front of it, you print that many of the piece.
When you glue the casters in place, there is a flat side on the tapered peg that corresponds to a flat in the bottom of the bin. If you look at the model before printing, you will see what I mean. The casters will fit in the holes in any direction, but they sit the best if these flats are lined up. I used a sewing pin inserted in the hole for an added detail.
Each sleeve is printed flat and the 3 parts should be kept together as one piece. The plastic between the pieces is a hinge and allows you to easily fold them into the required shape. Fold it up and glue it in place on each side of the bin.
The hinges part will slide down on top of the bin and stop on top of the corner guards. The holes in the hinges will probably have to be drilled to make them round to accept the bar. Put the lids in place and slide the bar through. I glued the bar in place with a drop of glue on the tab where it touches the corner of the bin. The bar can be swapped out for a piece of wire if you like.
I included a photo of a version of the bins. Originally, I only made the lids and casters for the sculpture and made the rest of the body from metal. I decided it would be fun to make the complete dumpster to print. Enjoy:) Instagram:Simonarri

Yo what's up with the dumpster doughnuts

For those with issues on the hinge try straightening a paper clip and using it. It fits perfect (if you have it bent right) and can bend the ends into an L shape so it doesn't fall out of the holes.

Hello, what kind of Glue do you recommend for this? I'm trying Loctite UltraGel Control with very little luck

I used hot glue on the inside and then cut out the excess with razor and pliers.

The hole is a little bit too tiny, But it's a great job!
I realy love it!

I am inexplicably drawn to this model! Very well done. Thanks for sharing!

Just printed out my second print of this model. What a fun print. If you have the build volume I recommend printing at 110% or bigger so that the hinges have large enough holes. I left the bar out and replaced it with some thin gardeners wire. Great job.

I just printed this out...the main can and the lids came out fine. However the casters and the side holders did not. I am wondering if I enlarge it if it will come out better?? I have a nephew that absolutely loves garbage trucks and I want to print him one for his upcoming birthday.

Im sure it will, Just reprint everything at a larger scale

I have to print a Bum to sleep in mine for sure!

where does the 2sleeve go?

Ok now i have seen it some one need to make a robot dump truck to complete the setup

These are going to be the new scrap disposal containers for my school's MakerLab. I love them!

Hey, I really love this print and was wondering if you would like to try a sample of our 1.75mm PLA filament and see how it works out! Free filament and free shipping, (United States only) just contact me at [email protected] and I can get you set up! Thanks and again great print!

This is osum it will make a great Christmas gift for all on my list, Thanks. Oh by the the print came out very well on my two Pursa I3 Dual Extruders. Keep up the great wok, I can't wait to see what is next. How about a container you know the ones they ship out over seas on ships.
