Picture of Electronic part organizer - 3d printed

Hello,
I made this wall-mounted organizer for small electronics, like resistors.
It consist of two pieces; the base/holder and a divider.

I made this project with 123D Design, a free download is available at http://www.123dapp.com/design.
It took me two hours or so to make and I guess it will take some hours to print depending on your settings. (I haven't tested it)

Step 1: The Base

To start, open a new project and create a box. The dimensions I used were: 100mm X 30mm X 5mm

Step 2: The Mounts 1

Next make a box on the long edge about 10 mm from the end. the box should be 10 X 5 X 10 mm.
Repeat this on the opposite site of the base. 

These little boxes will become the mounts for the base.

Step 3: The holes 1

Now make a lot of circles, about 5 mm from each edge and 5 mm apart from each other.

The radius of the holes should be 0.5 mm.
This meant that the diameter is 1 mm and most parts won't fall through. 

If you want an other size hole, keep in mind that the radius is half the diameter.
If your component is 2 mm across, the radius should be smaller than 1 mm.

Step 4: The Holes 2

To turn the circles into holes use the "Press Pull" tool under modify and click on your circles. Then press "5" to set the depth of the cut to 5 mm or click on the arrow and push it down.

Step 5: The Grove

To make the grove, you need to make two squares on the side of the base.
First make a 2 mm high and 1 mm wide square.
Next make a 1 mm high and 2 mm wide square right underneath it.
The squares should be centered between the holes, as you can see in the picture.

Then, like in the previous step, use the "push pull" tool to make a cut of 25 mm.

I'm sorry, but I just don't see how this works as a component organizer. I buy, sort, and use components every day, so I'm pretty baffled by this.
