Ultimate Drawer System
Intended to be the ultimate drawer system that is
- printable with FDM printing
- optimizable for anything you store in drawers
- compatible with Thingiverse's Customizer
- backwards-compatible with MarcElbichon's Ultimate Drawer System
- written for ease of improvement (which could use some improvement)
This Thing is the shelf customizer. For the drawer customizer, see Customizable Ultimate Drawer System Drawer. For drawer inserts/dividers see Customizable Ultimate Drawer System Inserts. Note there appears to be a rendering bug which shows up as big ears on the back of the shelf. The actual .STL files do render properly. I've tried to work around it, but only been partly successful. If you know what's up, tell me where I can fix the OpenSCAD code.
Version 1.01 fixes a couple bugs in clip pocket generation.
- Drawers and complementary shelving units are sized in units called "Us".
- If only one dimension is given, it is assumed to be the height and the width and depth are assumed to be 1U.
- A 1U drawer is 120 mm wide by 120 mm deep by 19 mm high.
- A 2U drawer is 120 mm wide by 120 mm deep by 39 mm high.
- Actual drawer width is 131 * Us wide - 10 mm
- Actual drawer depth is 130 * Us deep - 10 mm
- Actual drawer height is 20 * Us high - 1 mm
- A 2U shelf (or cabinet) is 131 mm wide by 130 deep by 50 mm high. (You can't (currently) make a 1U shelf.)
