I needed a pliers rack that held pliers upright to save drawer space. These exist but were way too expensive. Snap-On and Lisle versions would have cost several hundred dollars for enough to fill my tool drawer.
This version is designed for a quick easy print. Just less than 1 hour per section at 0.25mm layers. Print as many as you need, they connect together almost like Lego. I believe it would be much stronger if they were glued, but will them all together filling an entire tool drawer from one side to the other, they may not need to be.
There are 2 STL files included. One with pegs to connect to the next, and one without pegs to be used as an end piece.
This is published version 1. I went through a few versions before hand, and it still needs some work. Sometimes, I have to file the snap connectors to get them to fit. If you have any suggestions, then please message me.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
