3D printable tool storage system?

Thought this was quite ingenious: http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.a ... 26&p=71906

and perhaps something which could be worked up easily for 3D printing?

Here's a higher resolution image showing the mechanism a little clearer: http://www.conquer.tw/upload_files/Free ... /DM--3.jpg

Given the size requirements, I'm not sure how well the grate itself would be suited to 3D printing, and the raw stock for machining it out would be significantly higher than one of the grids.

The fixtures, though... I'm thinking I might snag a grid and a few fixtures and give it a shot.
