scifi crates

There is nothing more annoying than having small bits and pieces floating round your working space or room. Thankfully, Thingiverse user Andrew Bougie Greenville South Carolina has come up with a solution to fix this problem with his Sci-Fi small part storage crates.

According to Andrew “Recently I was in need of a small parts storage bin for my desk. I wanted something that had a bit of a sci-fi storage crate feel, so I created these models. The drawer and slots have just the right amount of tolerance to create a minor air seal if you close the drawers quickly. This was an unintended effect that adds to the sci-fi feel.”

He went on to say “For scale, the standard base model in the featured image is about a 90mm cube with some extra depth from the handles on the drawers.”

The printer Andrew used to create the cool little crates was a PrintrBot Simple. A print resolution of 200 microns was used, while there was an infill of 25% and no support or raft structures were used to make the crates.
