Does your workshop need to get organized?
Are there tools laying all over the place?
If you’re looking for things to help you organize your life – you might buy pegboard, which is great… but I’m hugely disappointed with the quality of the hooks, holders, etc. That’s why my first Thingiverse searches were for free pegboard 3d print pegboard models.
If you’re ready to hang your shop on a hook – then read on for the first few, free, things I created once I got 3d printing.
When you’re done, be sure to check out our other collections as well as all 30+ websites we’ve found free 3D print STL files for download.

Pegboard Tape Measure Holder
This measuring tape holder was one of the first 3d print models that I printed for my workshop.
It perfectly fits my (relatively new) Craftsmen measuring tape and has unique push-pins to hold it in, rather than more traditional hooks.
Looks great in black and highly recommended.
Dremel mounting bracket
When I was looking for free STL files and models to 3D print, I found this and fell in love (and put my Ender 3 v2 to work!)
Dremel tools are SO versitile and you can find 3d printing models for everything from a Dremel table saw to a fully automated Dremel 3-axis CNC machine.
BUT – unless you went cordless Dremels just take up so much space.
I grabbed this download for the Dremel Pegboard mount, printed it, and now my Dremel cables are organized, out of the way, and take up 80% less space. Win!
Peg board accessories
Next up this collection of 3d printed organizers to get your tools out of the way.
With over 21 files including everything from basic hooks to organized file holders, it has just about all the accessories you need to get going.
Multimeter Pegboard Holder
My multimeter looks exactly like the one in the picture but just barely didn’t fit with the case on.
Either way, those things take up so much room and are such a pain to organize that we’re grateful for DAVE42 (who seems to know the meaning of life) for the free STL file.
Pegboard Safety Glasses Holder
If you have safety glasses that look like the picture and pegboard, this should be your next 3D print.
I always lose my safety glasses and it’s one of the few accessories that I always use (I like my eyes).
It’s the little things that make organizing your accessories and workbench easier and, frankly, better. Go grab the free STL and find your safety glasses easier.
As the second pegboard 3d print model I printed, I was… less impressed with these clips. They do hold thicker bags/items and are relatively well designed.
But their design flaw is their teeth aren’t offset – so they don’t quite grip as well as they could.
Pegboard Square Holder
It’s simple, it’s fast to print, and it’s WONDERFUL. This tiny little 3d print perfectly fits most squares and now I finally don’t lose it all the time.
One of the cleanest and most useful designs I ran into and dead easy to 3d print.
Pegboard Tool Holders 3: Holed Boxes, Precision Drivers, Tin Snips, Pronged
If you download only one thing from the Thingiverse website (or anywhere else) – this (and v2 below) might be your best choice.
It’s a great collection of tool holders that got 3 pairs of side cutters, several monkey wrenches, and my tin snips off my workbench and out of the way.
Pegboard Tool Holders 2; Screwdrivers, Snips, Pliers, Misc
TyCreek came back with a second collection here and even more pegboard holders.
Tray (Hole Pitch 25mm)
Like cowbell, we can all use more trays to keep organized.
They’re pegboard hooks. A little better than ones you’d buy at Lowes or Home Depot but nothing too crazy.
Worth it in a pinch.
Pegboard Paper Towel Holder
My paper towel holder might be my most used item in my shop… but putting them into pegboard is actually rather difficult.
Now you don’t have to with this paper towel holder, designed by Idabkey.
Pegboard 2-drawer parts bin
If you’re working with small electrical components (like resistors, capacitors, etc.) or a lot of screws and bolts, chances are you have or need something like this 2-drawer parts bin by NerdAlert3d.
Pegboard mounted coffee cup holder
It’s a place to keep your coffee mug out of the way, away from dust, and easy to find. Need I say more?
Pegboard mounted beer holder
Everything we said about the coffee mug, except it’s for beer. Mmmm beer.
Pegstr – Pegboard Wizard
Sharpie holder for pegboard
My wife says I lose pens faster than I lose friends.
And since Sharpies are great, but I can never find mine, I grabbed this 3d printable Sharpie holder to put on my wall.
Allen Wrench Holder for Pegboard
I find Allen Wrench keys everywhere (except where I need them). With this handy organization upgrade you can now get them out of the bag and into an easier to find setup.
That is, if you remember to put them back.
Screwdriver holder (pegboard or wall mounted)
Screwdrivers are one of those tools that take up a ton of space and never stay organized.
There are a lot of options but I like this 3d printed screwdriver holder because it’ll keep both your large, and small, screwdrivers secure.
Horizontal can clip
I’m torn on this one but including it because you might have less shelf space than I do. Spray cans can take up a lot of room (and be hard to find when standing on a shelf).
If you use certain cans often and struggle to find them, grab this free horizontal can clip STL file download.
Pegboard Tape Holder
I’m looking forward to printing this one – I have electrical tape, painter’s tape, Gorilla tape (you get the picture) everywhere and can’t ever keep it organized.
Pegboard drill indices
No more hunting for that missing drill bit! Grab this free STL download, send it to your 3d printer, and put it near a drill press for easy and speedy drilling.
One major issue most people have when trying to organize is how to actually mount their pegboard so there is enough space between the board and the wall.
While I chose strips of wood, I wish I’d seen these spacers as they’re either hard to find or a bit expensive.
Pegboard Filament Spool Holder
A great way to get your 3d printing filament spools out of the way. Though they’ll still be at risk of absorbing moisture.
Pegboard Drill driver holder
Easy Pegboard Caliper Holder
AA Battery Holder for Pegboard
There you have it – all of the free 3d print pegboard models we found online so far.
If you liked these you might like some of the other collections of free STL files we’ve put together.
What size holes are in pegboard?
In the US, pegboard comes primarily in two sizes:
- 3/16″ sized hole pegboard (“small sized”) that’s 1/8″ thick
- 1/4″ sized hole pegboard that is 1/4″ thick.
Both will accept 1/8″ pegs (though they’ll be loose on the 1/4″) and have holes spaced 1″ on center.
