I’m a big fan of mixing 3D printing and woodworking (go ahead, throw rocks…I can catch)

I’m also a big fan of my MultiFunction Slab in the garage. I’ve been 3D printing custom bench dogs for that and it’s been awesome!

so I built an office desk that incorporates the 20mm dog hole concept, as well as a steel strip for magnetic problem-solvers. Check out the video if you get a chance.

FEATURES
  • Whiteboard on Lego wheels
  • Wildly good cable management
  • Holds all my stuff for the various things I do

.

Voiceover mode. Mic swings out of the way and collapses when not recording

.

Lighting on articulating boom arms articulates in every direction to provide task lighting for whatever task is at hand.

.

Clipboards held upright to save desk space. Book ends each have 4x neodymium magnets so they don’t get knocked around
.

These thru-hole cable dogs prevent the cables from falling through – handy for cords that always stay in the same spot.
.

Flexible cable holders ”Flexi-Nubs” use 2x neodymium magnets to securely attach to the steel, and allow easy addition/removal for cables & adapter pigtails that I pull out and move around from time to time.

Love projects that fill a need – looks like a great customized desk. The various holders are very interesting. I don’t know much about 3D printing but these sure look like problem solvers. Thanks for sharing.

I like it. I really like the steel strip in the back. I have so many things on my desk along the back edge that seem to get knocked out of place. The only thing I would have to do is add more monitors. Im a software architect/developer and we tend to really like our monitors.

I was going to ask for the .stl files and then I found them at the bottom. Thank you! I have been into 3D printing for almost 4 days now, haha. I printed and air assist bracket for both of my small lasers, clips to hold my Festool cords to my Bosch dust collector hose, and handles for my systainers. It’s way handier than I ever imagined. It’s just a small Ender 3 V2 but it works well and is fun as heck. I’m using TinkerCAD and Cura Slicer in addition to Sketchup. Been thinking about Fusion360 once I get beyond the very basics. I wasn’t planning on getting into 3D printing but I was looking for something and I couldn’t find it but I was finding .stl files for it. I drove to the store and grabbed a 3D printer and had the part printed the same day.

Whoa, welcome to the amazing world of 3D printing custom practical stuff! And congrats on the Ender 3 V2. Don’t ever believe it’s not capable. I have 2x Ender 3’s (v1) and a CR10S (a big Ender 3). In fact, I put my main Ender 3 through a torture test (in a car) and am finalizing a video on it. Here’s a first draft of the intro bit. https://youtu.be/8i4H45RI0gQ

As for Fusion 360, it’s worth learning – On YouTube search “Learn Fusion 360 in 30 days” – it’s a great playlist that takes you through it and makes a lot of sense.

Thanks for the comment!

thanks! I’d like to make a small version with a nice wood slab, and non-flashy filament – or even wooden dogs. I just don’t know where to put it.
