Modular grid storage. PRE-POST

 

I wanted to make some grids to put on the drawers/shelves that hold tableware in order to let dust and such fall through. This project has gone through may iterations…

Some random samplings of revisions. Things like strength, tolerances, and print time can be difficult to simulate for FDM prints.

Robut

I wanted to make a simple robot chassis that could have things added to it as needed.
I decided to go with some pz22gr9120r gearmotors because they are cheap (~$3 each) and easy to find. The 1:84 gear ratio and 6-24V operating range means that they aren’t going to be going very fast on a 2s or 3s battery pack, but for just playing around I think that robustness is more important.

The body has a 20 mm grid for attaching components and takes about 12 hrs to print. The bottom takes another 3.

Note: Please understand how to work with things correctly. PVC contains Chlorine which is dangerous, if you don’t know this, look up proper safety stuff.

Bathroom sink

When replacing the entry half bath I noticed that the toilet wasn’t centered. Supposedly this is to make the room look bigger. I don’t know about that, but things not being centered or aligned bothers me, so I wasn’t sure what to do. I decided in the end that the vanity doors should be aligned with the toilet and a cubby would be put to one side for TP and such.

The toilet is not centered on the wall.
