If you're anything like me you've been busy dropping Gridfinity baseplates into every single drawer in the house. Before you know it your life is wholly consumed by the grid.

But what do you do when your baseplates don't fit perfectly into your drawers? Randomly jam something into the gap? Glue, screw, or harness the power of magnets to hold them down? Just deal with them sliding around every time you open or close the drawer? Design a parametric print to fill the gap?

I chose the last option.


In all seriousness, I've been wanting to start learning how to design parametric files in OpenSCAD, and this seemed like an embarrassingly easy place to start.

With this SCAD file you can make spacers to fill out the corners, or just single gaps at the front, rear or sides!

Simply take some measurements, fire up OpenSCAD, and plug those measurements into the customizer panel on the right hand side! After you've tuned your spacer to perfection, just hit the render button, then export the STL!

I had to include an STL model for Thangs to be happy, but don't use it unless you need to fill an exactly 10.01mm x 10.01mm x 4.41mm corner gap! Use the SCAD file to customize that spacer like the nerd we all know you are! It's in the ZIP file!
