I 3d printed a few Gridfinity baseplates and bins because I had a few things I wanted to get a bit more fixed and arranged. I have a 3d printed streamdeck-like macro pad, a usb-keyboard & mouse-switch remote and a bangle.js charger that I wasn’t very happy with because they were constantly floating around on the desk. I wasn’t sure the Gridfinity system would add enough value or solve this situation, so I was a bit reluctant to try it out. Apart from that I was a bit concerned about the time it takes to print and amount of filament it chews through.
After having printed this I can say it’s both good and bad. I really, and I mean really, dig the modularity of this system. It’s like LEGO for organising. But, if you can’t use/find readily available bins and plates, or you need something more custom, you will have to spend time to model it on your own. And it does take quite a bit of time to print, as well as chewing through quite a bit of filament. That said, I’m inclined to say that things are overall a notch better than it was before, but it’s not a silver grail.
I went to the eye clinic for a return checkup and the doctor confirmed that I had a posterior vitreous detachment (that, as far as I can conclude, resulted in a retinal tear). I have experienced this before quite a few years ago, but then it only left a small spot just outside of my central vision. This time the tear is more substantial, but luckily further out in my peripheral vision. I am, slowly, coming to terms with that this may very well be something I will have to endure going forward. What makes it that more difficult is that I’m very well away from being 60 years old, which is when post vitreous detachment starts to rear its head.
