3D model description

Recently I was in need of a small parts storage bin for my desk. I wanted something that had a bit of a sci-fi storage crate feel, so I created these models. The drawer and slots have just the right amount of tolerance to create a minor air seal if you close the drawers quickly. This was an unintended effect that adds to the sci-fi feel.

For scale, the model is about a 90mm cube with some extra depth from the handles on the drawers. Prints well without supports!

I'll probably add a few more variations of the base over the next few weeks to allow for various drawer combos.

If you print this, be sure to share and tag @andrewbougie on Twitter and Instagram. I love to see what others do with my models!
