This is modular desk tidy, inspired by the designs I’ve referenced under remix. It is however not a modification of those models, but a new original design in OpenSCAD.
This is customizable of course – if the Thingiverse customizer isn’t working use a recent version of OpenSCAD (Nightly as of January 2018) with the built-in customizer capability to quickly bash out the module configurations you want.
I’ve included ready-generated STLs for a range of heights with lug and slot configurations that will work for any assembly. However if you want an assembly with nice flat surfaces on the visible faces, you’ll need to generate your own.
I have also included a parameter file and a batch script which generate STLs for the set that is showcased in the image gallery. These files are only useful with the later version of OpenSCAD – they are of no use with OpenSCAD 2015.03-2. They can serve as a reference on how to generate your own configuration.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
