Description

Name:

Taboo, an acronym for Tackle Box/ Organizer

 

What is it

  • A set of print-in-place tackle boxes / organizers of three different sizes (For X Series and A1, for MK3S and others, and for Minis.
  • Each tackle box has two trays, hinged, printed as a single print-in-place print job;
  • Each tray is divided into compartments (totaling between 16 and 24 compartments per box);
  • Each compartment is individually opened and closed using a latch on the side walls of each tray, with lids that remain opened or closed independently of each other.

 

Why build it

Many tackle boxes and organizers can help you classify and contain a large number of distinct items… but with a single bump, slip of the hand, or drop can ruin your day, by mixing and/or spilling your items. Taboo does not, because all its compartments open and close independently..

 

Use case 1

Ocean fishing from a boat, specially in multi-day trips – Taboo has been tested and honed for over a year fishing from chartered boats small and large, through hectic activity, crowded decks, challenging weather and constant bumps and slips. It easily fits in an angler’s fishing bag (where space is very limited), while accepting rough handling and withstanding unavoidable accidents.

 

Use case 2

Storing and retrieving workshop items that come in multiple sizes and varieties. It is not a replacement for an gridfinity tray, but if you are going to be moving around with your items, it mat be better: the same reasons that make Taboo a great tackle box make it a great organizer for small items.

 

Key Feature

 

Taboo works well because it uses “living hinges” for its lids, which enclose safe, spill-proof compartments without sacrificing space. Those lids can be printed in TPU for best results, but also PETG and, to a lesser extent, PLA. The key difference between lid filaments is the durability of the lids; however, the lids are very easy to print individually, which makes them easily replaceable, and keep the box useable for years regardless.


 

 

Edit – January 24, 2024

IMPORTANT   –   Because this web site only let me upload one file to contain the model, it makes it impossible to upload three different sets of files, each set with two plates that are designed to potentially  be printed with different filaments. So, on the plate that loads directly onto Handy you will find only the container of the large box. No Lids, no other sizes.

 

But the lids, as well as the other two sizes, are all in the “Raw Model Files” Section. Just click on the button with that same phrase and you will find two files fore each size. Good luck!

 

Introduction video


Three sizes included in the set, to leverage different printer sizes

The files include three different sizes: Mini (180x180 plate), Regular (200x200) and Large (250x250), so you can maximize the size of the box for your printer volume.

 

 

Printing and materials

Each Taboo requires two separate (and very straightforward) print jobs: one for the container (which prints-in-place), and a second one for the lids.

 

For containers I mostly use ABS, ASA or PETG because I use them outdoors, in challenging conditions, but practically any filaments can be used based on your needs.

 

For the lids, the ideal filament is TPU, but PETG works well also..

All pieces print well with 0.2 layers using 0.4 nozzles, using 3 layers, with absolutely no supports. For other settings, lids and box have different needs, as follows:

 

Container:

  • Prints-in-place, covering most of the plate for maximum capacity.
  • You can use PLA for less demanding uses (not outdoors)
  • 20% infill
  • Use ABS, ASA, or PETG for rough, outdoor use; in those cases print with Outer brims = ON, to avoid warping (mileage varies)Use adaptive print layers for better results, mostly to improve the tops of the hinges and the side brims. See darker bands on the variable heights snapshot below


 

Lids:

  • TPU Shore 95A produces very flexible lids that last forever. I have tried 6 different TPU brands over time, and Overture High Speed TPU is by far the best, with Bambu’s a distant third for this application.
  • Alternatively, use PETG for stiffer lids, with hinges that last a shorter time (no big deal, they are a quick re-print). PLA works as well, specially for indoor use.
  • 100% infill is recommended
  • Translucent filaments are great so that compartment contents show through
  • See the video to get a feel for PETG and TPU lids compared.
  • Side Note: The A1 Mini is GREAT for printing in TPU 95A from an external spool (See my upload of FRESH - Friction-Reducing Spool Holder model for even better results). If you haven’t tried TPU on your mini yet, using for printing the lids is a great introductory project to do so. For fail safe results just use the “Generic TPU” profile and Overture High Speed TPU (most of the lids you see in the video use the Translucent Clear and Blue version of that filament).

Hi there! Yeah, it's confusing, my apologies. I had uploaded many of the files in the "Raw Model Files" section, that was my mistake. Now they are available from the main menu as everything else. Good luck, I hope you enjoy the model! Shout if you need any help or clarification :)
