If you’re a 3D-printing aficionado or simply someone looking to declutter and streamline their workspace, the STOR Box might be your ultimate solution. Let’s dive into this innovative 3D-printed organizer that aims to enhance the way you store and access essential components and parts.
The Journey to an Organized Workspace
The brainchild of engineer and product designer Vasily Parshin, the STOR Box was born out of a quest for the perfect parts organizer. After trying several commercial options without satisfaction, Vasily decided to take matters into his own hands.
Over two years and more than ten design iterations later, the STOR Box emerged as an exceptional solution for 3D-printing enthusiasts and modders. It’s a testament to the power of perseverance and the desire to create the ideal workspace.
A DIY Dream: Designed for Makers
What sets the STOR Box apart is its accessibility. Unlike traditional products that require shipping, this organizer takes a different approach. Vasily recognized the potential of the 3D-printing model and aimed to make this design available to anyone with an FDM 3D printer and basic modding skills.
Months of optimization went into designing the STOR Box and its .gcode files to ensure that users, even those with budget FDM printers, can easily, quickly, and reliably print all the necessary parts. All you need is a 0.6 mm nozzle and some M2 hardware and springs for assembly. With a detailed parts list and separate rewards for hardware, you’ll have everything required to get started.
This is an organizer you can print at home, eliminating the need for shipping delays or comparisons at hardware stores. You can have your very own organizer in your workshop as soon as you finish printing it.
Features That Elevate the STOR Box
The STOR Box boasts a range of features that distinguish it from other organizers on the market. Let’s explore what makes it stand out:
Unlike traditional toolboxes, which often lack drawers, the STOR Box incorporates sliding drawers. This feature simplifies the process of locating specific components or tools within your workspace. No more rummaging through a sea of items; the STOR Box’s drawers make organization effortless.
The STOR Box is designed to fit on a 200×200 bed FDM printer. The .gcode files are tailored for this printer type, ensuring smooth and reliable prints. Imagine being able to print the perfect workshop organizer by yourself—practicality at its finest.
Versatile and Stackable Drawer Bins
The STOR Box’s drawer bins are far from ordinary. With ten different designs to choose from, you can organize components and tools of varying sizes and shapes with ease. Whether it’s nails, thumbtacks, or small parts, the STOR Box offers the ideal storage solution.
Stackable bins provide additional accessibility and organization, perfect for expanding your workspace when working on projects. These bins also incorporate retainer wedges, preventing drawers from accidentally sliding out and causing spills.
Locking Mechanism and Wall Mounting
For those who transport their tools and components, the STOR Box includes a secure locking mechanism. It keeps your items in place during transit, reducing the risk of spills and mix-ups. Back in your workshop, the built-in wall mounting mechanism allows you to attach the box to a vertical surface, freeing up valuable workbench space.
Strength and Reliability
The STOR Box is not your typical flimsy organizer. It has been optimized and rigorously tested for FDM materials, ensuring durability and longevity. Carefully chosen dimensions maximize space efficiency, and M2 CSK screws contribute to its sturdiness and reliability.
In summary, the STOR Box is a game-changer for makers, offering a versatile, accessible, and DIY approach to workshop organization. Say goodbye to clutter and welcome an organized, efficient workspace with this innovative 3D-printed organizer.
