@haydesigner I picked up one of the cheaper SLA printers off Amazon (The Orange10), and it is quite fun indeed! Good enough to learn all the ins-and-outs of designing for printing. Not a large print bed by any means, but certainly large enough for DnD figures, small part prototyping, and small mold making.
@Stumpy91 I mostly print functional parts for around the house. I’ve found a few things on thingiverse, but other parts I designed on my own since they fit some custom purpose. I mostly use OpenSCAD for designing stuff like that.
@Stumpy91 I agree it’s definitely a little weird to use scripts to make CAD drawings; but I’m a software developer so that process is more intuitive to me. I tried using Fusion360 but it took me multiple weeks to just make a little case for one of my arduinos
@haydesigner I tried the little giphy thing a few times, and didn’t get an image I liked. First time I’ve tried anything but plain text. I should have kept experimenting with the buttons, but I didn’t want to edit my trash comment a dozen times.
I would love something like this if I could use it in my bathroom. All I have is a sink, medicine cabinet, toilet, tub, and shower - no countertop. Ideally, it would be for my Waterpik on the highest shelf instead of balancing it inside my medicine cabinet (main reason I don’t use it).
@borisgoodenough that’s a great idea! Are the horizontal dividers sturdy enough to hold bottles in the upper 2 “quadrants”? Can you stack the 2 small ones on top of each other if the top one is full of wine (without it crushing the one on bottom)?
@richrauch I got nothing to do with any of this, but for the product and the price, what are you expecting? You may be on the wrong site and consider heading on over to “pure mahogany” for your storage needs.
@goldnectar Ha! Sadly I think you are right. I had never heard of Daiso’s before. A quick search found some online versions (no doubt not the same experience as a brick & mortar in Japan), but they got some pretty fun looking stuff.
@elfunkman Calm your cheap box buying heart. They have brick and mortar stores in the states (probably elsewhere in the world). I frequented Daiso often in Irvine, Ca. It’s so nice in there (and clean) that you don’t have to feel the American dollar store shame.
I just got these and I gotta say, for what I paid, I was expecting a lot less. One nice thing is that the inserts don’t just rest in the cubes, they attach with Velcro “rails”. It makes it a little tricky to get in (hint: slide them in slightly folded from square, then slip the edges onto the Velcro from the side), and it’s not suitable for anything truly weighty, but if you want say, just one insert to make a double shelf for stacks of papers it’s great.
Second thing that took me a minute to figure out is, the instructions are a little wrong for the two-foot unit. They show the base insert as a single long panel. It’s actually three long panels joined and folded together. Unfold it and slide it in with the Velcro rails to the inside. (On mine, this leaves the annoying bright white labels visible on the inside. Cut them off or cover them up if it’ll bother you.) Then the instructions show you inserting a solid foot-square divider like the base plate of the cubes to divide the unit into two cubes, but what you actually get is a two-foot-long double panel with three cutout slots for the short inserts to mate with. Insert it with the slots facing out.
