Never Jet Hot

Curator of Flotsam. Goes off on tangents.

Dimensional shame in 3D printing.

Here’s my first attempt to make stackable bins to fit in the vertical file cubbyholes that my dad built into this fine secretary desk.

You see I left the brim on so it won’t rattle around in there. Somehow my measurements didn’t translate to the actual file for printing. All of these cubbies are precisely 60mm wide, thanks to my dad’s usual attention to detail. So I can’t very well have crappy bins of various widths rattling around in there.

It would be nice to be able to stack them. So Version Two will be 60mm, without brim. It will have thick, uniform walls for stacking; and also much longer, might as well use the space available. Stay tuned!
