Wall-mounted cubicles are ideal for organizing and storing stackable items. Shelves, on the other hand, are open. Their open design allows for more creativity in arranging colorful sweaters, t-shirts, or blouses. A modular shelf has the qualities of a cubicle and regular shelf.

The idea of 3d printed shelves may not be novel; however, a 3d printable modular shelf is a new idea. In fact, it was designed and created by Editor Sandra James as a cubicle replacement for Altered Rooms’ closet issue. During the thought process of designing a cubicle large enough to hold folded clothes, it was decided that the top of a typical cubicle was not necessary for containing a stack of clothes. A cube was sliced diagonally and the modular shelf was born. The shelf can be printed in four parts and adheres to a wall with four, 6 to 12 lb 3M Command™ Strips.

The modular shelf was designed using the same connection method as the CSU Modular drawers, making it more than sturdy enough to hold a stack of jeans or t- shirts. Incidently, six folded cotton T-shirts were found to weigh 2 pounds, 9 ounces when placed on a scale. Three jeans weighed 3 pounds, 10.4 ounces when placed on a scale.

In addition to its strength and versatility, this modular shelf offers a sleek and minimalist design that seamlessly integrates into any room decor. Its adjustable features allow you to customize the arrangement of your items, providing both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Whether you need extra storage for clothing, books, or decorative items, this shelf is a practical and stylish solution.
