Any chance you'd release cad files or some other base files? Similar to one of the other commenters, the home depot pegboard holes are too small, and adjusting the extrusion multiplier didn't resolve the sizing. Thanks for posting such a great system, hopefully I'll be able to utilize it :)

Reduce your infill % and then increase your extrusion multiplier even more.

Wow... just WOW! I printed the 3 parts for the drill holder and it worked PERFECTLY!!! Before finding your thing(s), I was wondering if I could find anything that would be strong enough to hold my heavy Makita drill. Well, everything snapped together just right and my drill is hanging VERY securely on the pegboard.

GREAT job!!!

Great to hear! You should share some pictures.

Yes... yes I should! :) So, I posted a bunch of info and pics here: https://www.printerknowledge.com/threads/3d-printed-pegboard-clips-holders-hooks-parts-etc.12928/

(and also my comments about wishing you had more / better pics of all your pegboard variations)

... but attached is my favorite one:

Hi. Thank you for posting these files. I'm in the middle of reorganizing my garage and having these at my disposal is awesome.

Could you comment further on printing tips? The pegs are coming out slightly too think for standard pegboard purchased at home depot. Is there a setting to use that would not take the pegs out of alignment with the holes? I'm using Prusa Slicer with a Prusa MK3 and PLA.

Try reducing your extrusion multiplier under the "filament settings" tab. That will reduce the peg diameters without affecting their spacing. I would try reducing it by 0.1 and see how that goes. You may need to adjust it more than that.

This is undoubtedly a very clever and useful design... but, figuring out which parts to print is like trying to assemble a jigsaw puzzle in the dark. if the photos could be indexed to their stl files that would help a great deal. or... help us by describing what parts should be printed to hang a particular tool.

Please read the entire summary. It includes specific instructions about which parts go with which other parts, and how to read the STL file names.

If there is something you see in the photos that you want to print but can't figure out, let me know and I will point you in the right direction.
