This is exactly what I wanted to design for my TV to keep remotes and stuff on. Can you share the CAD files so I can change the dimensions of the shelf to customize it for my setup?

This is great. An scad that allowed custom hex sizes for the shelf would be cool too. Maybe even other patterns?

Hey guys, im a 3d Printer beginner. I printed the legs and nuts but they dont fit together. The threads are not precise enough.
I printed with 0.15 and 100% infill with a Geeetech Prusa i3.

Any tipps how i can make it better?

since you already printed it i would just re-tap them, if you want to re print them and if your using pla set your fan speed higher, when printing with pla i usualy have my bed off, extruder at 200 and i use blue painters tape on my bed

this is a great idea, but I do not trust relying on the force of two legs pushing into the monitor to hold up any kind of significant weight or vibration. maybe suction cups, rubber feet, or some kind of 3m/command tape on the bottom.

Printed this out this past week to free up some space at my work desk. It took a little elbow grease to get those bolts on, but it fits my USB fan perfectly!

The bolts broke as soon as I tightened them :(
0.15mm height, 100% infill, PLA.

I'll try again soon, but maybe you can create a version of the legs with a hole for metal bolts.

you could drill out wholes, dont be afraid to break out the power tools :)

What's the thread size/pitch? Slic3r made the threads on the bolts and nuts kinda worthless for some reason, so they need to be chased and tapped.

Is this a standard thread size?

Unfortunately it is not.

When I printed the platform part of the model, the little hex bits were not connected to each other.

That's a slicer or printer issue, I've printed multiple with no problems.

I've tried 100% infill and increasing the number of shells. My build platform is level. Do you have any suggestions on what settings I could tweak to make the little hex's connect to each other. I do get quite a few perfectly forms hex's. It looks perfect until you try and take it off the build plate. Then you see that they are not connected to each other but separate pieces.

I honestly have no idea. You might try a different slicer. I have zero problems using Cura.

do you think this will scale down alright for smaller printers?

My only worry will be the resolution on the threaded bits, the rest should scale fine.

Should scale just fine, inside of the 3D printing software.

Great idea, i love it, print asap! thank you! ill post photo when done.
