At Angled.io, we often use our numerous 3D printers to fill needs that arrive in our warehouse.
We need a pen holder? Printed in-house. We need a printer elbow? Printed in-house. Just recently, our designers noticed that the team was losing small tools around the warehouse, so they quickly devised a solution. They designed a custom tool stand to help our team keep track of all their tools, in one place.
Our designers created this custom tool stand with cubbies for each specific tool that our team may need. This means no more misplacing small tools! Rather than laying tools on a work table or putting them all in a box, they now have their own individual place. Even better, our team members can now simply glance at a tool stand and see which tools may be misplaced.
One of the ingenious elements of our custom tool stand is it’s low-plastic-use design. Not only does the porous nature of the stand mean that we save a ton of plastic in its production, but it also increases efficiency in print time. Rather than having to print a heavy block of plastic layer by layer, our printers can quickly produce a grid pattern with ease without losing any structural integrity in the stand. Even with cubbies in the side of the stand, the grid pattern provides just as much structural integrity as a smooth block of plastic would.
This custom tool stand is a versatile design that will be able to adjust right along with our team. New cubbies can be removed or added to the design as needed, and our team will be able to keep track of the tools they need, all while cutting down on time and plastic to produce.
