I got my Maslow kit from MetalMaslow in November this past year. And then, I got a 3D printer for Christmas. Talk about some fun new toys! Anyhow, I knew that I wanted to keep several rolls of filament on hand, as well as keep them in dry storage. I looked for ideas online and decided to build my own. And what better to cut out a simple box than my new Maslow! I know, I know, dado blades on a table saw could have done the cuts in 15 minutes. But I don’t have dado blades, so I figured might as well use the Maslow.
This was my first project to design with Fusion 360 and then generate the gcode from there. I definitely should have used the gcode cleaner so it moved faster between cuts, but overall I am happy with the results.
I decided to have a window in the front of the box, so I used the Maslow to pocket out a recess for a piece of plexiglass. The sheet I had was 0.093 inches thick. In fusion I set that depth to 0.094 just to see how it would do. I’m pleased to say that the z depth was spot on, and the glass fits like a glove!
Here are some pictures of what I ended up with. If anyone is interested I can share the files here. I found the filament guides on thingiverse that I used also.
