Pegboard Screwdriver and Bit Organizer

Here is my solution to hold medium and large screwdrivers neatly and (hopefully) without any issue. I hope they work for you just as well as they work for me!
Made for 3mm material.
Use wood glue where needed, especially for the bit holder.



Cut the Black and Red for Version 1.
Cut Black and Yellow for Version 2.
Driver Holder V2 Final
^^^This is the SVG btw^^^
Assembly:
The bit holder is a bit tricky to attach… Sorry about that!

Perfect! The bit holder is especially nice, since I have the screwdriver that has the magnetic tips. Thank you so, so much! Definitely making this today! But I’m not seeing the SVG? Just the note that it’s there.

You have to right click the blank space and hit “save as”, I don’t know why it doesn’t show up…

Well, it saved it into my file, but when I try to open it in GF, it’ll show the pieces on the left, but not on the board. It also tells me I have “no artwork,” maybe because I have to rearrange the pieces to fit? Which I cannot do, because I can’t see them. Help please!

You can zoom out by using the CTRL key on the keyboard and your scroll wheel on the mouse, or by using the Zoom box at the upper left of the workspace.

Then drag and drop the parts onto the bed.

Great practical cut!

The items aren’t showing in your .svg because they’re off your art board. If you make your art board (in your design program) 12"x20" and place your art on there, then when you upload it to the :glowforge: they’ll be exactly where you placed them in the GFUI as well. :slight_smile:

@ellencadwell you can also hit Ctl-a (select all) and you’ll see a box you can then drag around to bring the pieces into view.

This is what I get both in Glowforge (the first pic) and Silhouette (second pic). In GF I tried the Ctrl-A and I can still see nothing to click on to drag it. In Silhouette, it totally distorts everything.

What am I doing wrong? Ugh! :pleading_face:

Do you see in your upper left hand corner where it says 100% - that’s where it’s filling your screen with the work area. Your objects are there somewhere, but they’re off the work area. So you can either hold down Ctl and scroll down on your mouse wheel - or click in that box and make it 25%.

Then, click on the Hand icon and move it around until you’re off the side of your work area, then click Ctl-A - which will highlight any art. If you don’t see it, drag it around to the other side - or the top, or the bottom :slight_smile:

Then, once you’ve found it, click back to the Arrow symbol, drag the art back into the black area - and re-zoom in so you can see your work area filling the screen.

Hopefully that works :smiley:

BTW, dragging things off your work area allows them not to be printed even if you have settings entered for them - so it’s a great area to use when you’ve got a bunch of stuff in a file but only want to print one thing. Becoming comfortable with the zoom and pan features will help you in the long run!

That worked, thanks Deirdrebeth! I never payed attention to that spot before - now I know! I also didn’t know you could drag stuff off the area screen and not have it print. I’ve just deleted parts I didn’t want to print (though not changing the actual file) if I had to use, say, another board or forgot to print two sides of a pegboard hanger.
I appreciate you!
