Support-less Weighted Gridfinity Baseplates (CadQuery Customizable)by
This is inspired by Zack Freedman's weighted Gridfinity baseplates, but puts the weight cavity on TOP so that the model needs NO SUPPORTS to print. As with all my other Gridfinity models, this was designed using CadQuery instead of Fusion 360. See this video for further information about the project:
This version is customizable in CadQuery so you can generate custom sized weighted gridfinity baseplates, including ridiculously large ones like 10x10 baseplates etc. I have included a random selection of grid sizes from 1x1 up. These should be fully compatible with the official boxes/grids. You can also fully customize the X and Y unit sizes AND the presence of weight slots AND/OR magnet/bolt holes! (in the filenames: nowt = no weight slots, and nohole = no magnet/bolt holes in the baseplates).
I re-implemented this because it seems like a perfect fit for an open source CAD software like CadQuery. With that in mind I have also released the source code python script that was used to generate the STLs. I would love for others to help me create new organizer bins and/or re-implement organizer bins in open source CAD software like CadQuery or OpenSCAD.
I used CadQuery/CQ-Editor to design this with a recent version checked out from github on April 13th, 2022. Unfortunately CadHub.xyz does not have a recent enough version of CadQuery to render this properly (n.b. the issue is with lack of a combine argument in the older version of the eachpoint method).
CQ-Editor is available from here, but please check out a 0.30dev version or newer to be able to compile the included CadQuery source code: https://github.com/CadQuery/CQ-editor

Because Thangs does not allow me to upload the CadQuery python source code for this model, it is available here: https://www.printables.com/model/186703
