Last minute Xmas present… a storage box!

Time for tidying up my bench ! As electronic components are getting smaller and smaller, the need for suitable storage boxes emerges. Here is the description of an original storage cupboard that I designed for SMDs as well as for very small mechanical parts such as watches spare parts.

Here is the picture captured from FreeCad that I used to draw the box and bins. Each box features 10 bins.

As you can see, multiple boxes can be stacked. Each bin fits in a cell and each cell features a spring loaded retaining restraint which prevents the bin from sliding and dropping while moving the storage cupboard. The carving on top is for sliding a  storage map as it is not possible to put labels in front of each bin. Here is a real life illustration of the box printed in 3D:
