3D Printing & Imaging Digital Fabrication Workshop

We’re always on the hunt for truly useful things that you can make with a 3D printer, so when Donald Bell featured the Thingiverse Pegboard Collection on this new Maker Update YouTube show, we just had to check it out.

The pegboard is one of those organizational technologies that almost everyone has and that is frequently underutilized. In my case, I have several such boards in my house, basement work area, and garage and I only have a few items hanging from the few pegboard hooks that haven’t been lost. Sure, I could just buy more hooks, but I love the idea of being able to customize the boards I have with pegs, hooks, shelves, and specialty holders that really optimize the space and the use of each board.

Here are 8 of the printable tool holders available on Thingiverse that caught our eye.
