I finally got to better organize all my tools and small size material. And what's better than coming up with a custom sized solution that can be printed with a 3D-Printer. These drawer organizers are designed in openscad and can be customized to fit the exact dimension of your tool drawer. In my case I filled a 32" Craftsman tools chest drawer with 8x4 small boxes.
My favorite are the brick red and the turquoise. But in order to use all of those almost empty spools I decided to go with a wild mixture of colors.
Each box has a small label tap at the top which can be used to better label the content. In addition to that a separator can be added in the middle to make 2 segments of half the size.
The openscad file is available on thingiverse as thing:1068536
With Midnight Blue I was looking for a darker blue, transitioning from the highly saturated Navy Blue to Black and Gunmetal Grey. While fading into dark I pulled out some of the blue too which should give it a tiny bit more of a coated or surface treated metal look than plastic. This looks really great in low light where the shaded parts start disappearing in the dark leaving just a few bright reflection points.
The print of the terminator T-800 is an almost perfect use case, an example of scary looking metal without having to give up entirely on color. And I think it looks a lot better than just printing this in black or grey.
