WIP! - Subject to changes
This is my latest idea, i'm a bit OCD to be fair, and i love things in order, i like tool boards, I love the idea of gridfinity, I also like drawer systems (like my boxy drawers stl's) and I also needed a new set of monitor stands for my desk, which is a dump right now.
So thats the background, I took my boxy drawers, the idea of gridfinity and my drawers and other tidy systems and started making a modular ecosystem for organising.
It not just a gridfinity clone, Im making two desktop monitor bases with drawers, using the blocks as walls and drawers for a base to sit on top and my monitor to sit on.
So you could use this to make storage racks, sets of storage bins for say nuts and bolts, desk tidy's, draw stacks.
We could then even start to fill the blocks with inserts for holding specific sized items kinda like gridfinity, but then mix in drawers, tubs and match and build into small modular furniture blocks.
This is still very early doors, the basic blocks have been designed to fit into a matrix grid. The grid can be screwed to things, or loose. they also sit flush next to each other to extend the grid size, so think print loads and lay them next to each other and the blocks will fit over the joins. Grids also allow for bases to screw up into blocks to secure to the grid.
The blocks so far are just basic tubs, different sizes as I build them. can be used for building structures or holding things. The blocks have holes for securing with screws or a centre hole to take a 6x2 magnet, with a magnetic base plate coming at some point.
Leave some comments, let me know if people are interested, if so i will go nuts on this, for now im building two monitor stands with drawers and will put all files on here, if people want this i will go to town on it.
Everything is modular and designed to be extendable to make things as big as you like. Storage sets as tall as you want etc.
Designed for tradeoff of rigidity vs print speed. Currently printing in wood PLA.
Added image of first run off of my monitor stand, will take a drawer or set of drawers in the middle and drop a 10mm thick laminate floor offcut on the top for the monitor base.
