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.

I wanted to make a simple robot chassis that could have things added to it as needed.

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