    Nice! I use 3-ring baseball card inserts in a large binder for resistors, caps, diodes and transistors. Need a better way to organize pots, switches and opamps.

    That's sweet! I have an overflowing old parts box, the metal kind with plastic drawers. Most of my parts are now in bags in storage bins, didn't work the way I hoped though, still a pain to find stuff and worse to inventory.

    I like that! So much nicer than the standard off the shelf ones I’m using.

    It will take a while to print. Suggest relocating the printer out of earshot and making a schedule of when to check on it that maximises throughput.

    Made something similar for the daughter to organise her craft stuff. Took 2 weeks to print but well worth it as used frequently.

    Definitely takes a while. Recommend using a .6 or .8 nozzle also. Cuts down print time by quite a bit. I'm using a Creality Ender 3 with a SKR Mini board, so it is really quiet, but it is located in our guest room / office, so out of earshot and pretty quiet. IF you are really handy, you can set up a Raberry Pi and a webcam to check theprint with your phone! :)

    Honestly, the Ender 3 is only $179 on Creality's website. They are a blast. My son and I are having a ball with it.
