Hey all, over the past few months I’ve been 3D printing prototypes for a multipurpose tool for my office/3D printing space. And I think I’ve got something great.
My friend and I created an extruded channel profile (called Tackoma) that mounts to a wall and accepts light duty accessories such as tool holders, hooks, shelves etc. We’ve also designed it so that it can hold paper or thin objects.
The cool part about it is that we are setting up downloadable models to print your own accessories. Or even create your own accessories for your needs.
I’ve attached a picture showing it on the side of my printer holding my tools. Since it’s an extrusion, it can really be any length and cut to any size. We’ve launched a Kickstarter to raise the money for the first production run. If you are interested in the project, check it out here: http://kck.st/2ot683X or search Tackoma
Also, we want to start uploading our models, where do people recommend putting them? I started uploading a few at Pinshape, but would Thingiverse or Youmagine better for a project like this?
