Few things in life are as satisfying as milk crates, especially the ones that are perfectly stackable and can store a wide range of items. Still, even making a milk crate into a miniature will probably make you feel quite satisfied, so this next 3D-printed product might just be your next obsession.
These 3D-print miniature milk crates are a great way to decorate your desk, your home or your plant shelf! These tiny crates can be stacked on top of each other and they can even be used to hold small trinkets, or small plants like air plants, succulents and cacti.
Coming to us from 3Dinnovativeprints on Etsy, these stackable mini milk crates are well-appreciated by buyers, offering a wide range of colors and what most past purchasers consider a clean, well-made 3D printed object. Made from hard plastic, these are just like the full-sized milk crates for stackable, satisfying desktop fun.
You can buy these mini milk crates in black, white, pink, red, purple or orange and while it isn’t quite clear from the product listing exactly how large they are, they appear to be about one cubic inch compared to a human thumb depicted in the photo. You can also purchase them in quantities up to 989 per purchase, so you should be able to get more mini milk crates than you’d ever really need!
For those who want to 3D print these mini milk crates themselves, the shop also offers the option to purchase the STL file for the 3D printed miniature milk crates for an even more affordable price. When purchased, the 3D printed mini milk crate plans download as a ZIP folder which can be unpacked to reveal the STL file you’ll use with your 3D printer. The shop also says that it’ll give you $2.50 off on purchases that include four or more STL FILES.
In the product description, the shop says these self-designed STL files work great with any type of filament. However, it’s worth noting that those who buy the digital file cannot return them, due to the nature of the product.
They also sell a ton of other tiny 3D printed boxes, including tiny wood palettes, tiny shipping containers, tiny shipping crates, and more!
The shop and the mini plastic milk crates are both well-rated by buyers, with 57 individual reviews for this 3D printing STL file and an overall 4.5-star rating for the shop.
In one five-star review of the 3D-printed mini milk crates STL file, Hardy wrote, “No problems printing on my ender3 came out nice at .2 layer height with no support. I think I will be making several of these for my friends.”
If you’re hoping to buy the actual, physical mini milk crates from the shop, you can expect them to arrive between nine and 16 days after your purchase. They ship from the 3Dinnovativeprints shop in Canada, though buyers of the mini milk crate 3D printing file will only need to wait until they can print the item themselves.
