Taste the rainbow

I’d be thrilled if the items in my shop were as neatly organized as they used to be in Zack Freedman’s shop:

But that wasn’t enough for Freedman, the president of fabrication firm Voidstar Lab. Freedman wanted his organization system itself to be a form of self-expression, so he designed some new facades for the bins in Fusion 360…

…laser-cut some label inserts…

…then 3D-printed the facades up using rainbow filament. By printing the pieces one at a time…

…he was able to advance through the colors at steady rate, so that each facade would be a slight gradation of the one before.

The end result was, by Freedman’s own admission, wildly inefficient in terms of time consumption. But heck, if it’s your own shop and you’re the one who has to stare at the thing all day, you should design and build it however extremely you like.

If you want to watch the whole process, it’s below:
