The SNACK Drawer Store: Now Made with Real Snacks

New Year, New SNACK Drawers

It’s a new year and so it’s time to dust off the 3D printer and get back to work. There is now a new drawer model and a new variation to the old one too! See below for details on the new SNACK Drawer Medium and Captured Cards.

For those that are new to Framework, welcome. This might also be your first time seeing anything about the SNACK Drawer. If so, please take a look at the original post and the version 2 post for some history.

Digital Files

If you want to print your own drawers for cheaper, or you live outside the USA / CA, the digital drawers are a great option. The first drawer file set is $8.00 but the other afterwards is only $4.00! Click here to jump to the digital files store page.

If you previously bought the digital files for the Old Original or V2, you will be getting the updated files with the captured versions as well as a coupon for the medium drawer digital files in an e-mail in the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience.

What’s New?

Medium Drawer

Thanks to the suggestion by @Keith_J_Brett, I made a 50% larger version of the SNACK Drawer that extends below the normal expansion card slots but is just shorter than the laptop’s rubber feet. This extra space makes it possible to store all sorts of new and exciting things. Here are some examples:

Captured Drawers

I don’t remember to whom I owe the suggestion of making the drawers captured, but if it is you reading this, thank you!

By adding a little slot in the bottom of the drawer slide and a post in the frame, these variations of the drawers are captured so as to not fall out! Both versions of the drawer support this variation.

New Colors

Thanks to two customers who requested custom colors, I now have in stock a silky white that is a close-ish match for the framework’s aluminum and an orange that is (I hope, I don’t have a reference) close to the orange of the bezel replacement. See those colors at the top of the page.

Thank You

Thank you to all the people that have given an internet stranger (me) their money so that they could put a tiny drawer inside their niche laptops. I look forward to making more improvements and designing even better solutions to problems you didn’t know you had.

Absolutely amazing gen-on-gen improvement!
You should put internal volume comparisons :stuck_out_tongue:


That’s not a bad idea. I think I can measure that using water and a syringe. I’ll update you when I’ve done that. Thanks!

Extra large sip of water!


All done, check the original post for the volume comparison. Thank you again for the suggestion.

For those wondering, I filled a 3ml pipette with water and then dripped it into the drawers until they were full. Since 1ml of water is 1cc of volume, the amount of water that it took to fill the drawers could be easily converted to their volume.

Thank YOU @XenoCow although I have yet to buy a SNACK Drawer or the files, this is by far my favorite project and expansion card just because it’s so simple and I always love reading your new write-ups!

P.S. seeing a computer drawer full of peanut butter is so cursed, but I love it <3


It was the most entertaining snack I think I have eaten in a while. The drawer was a mess afterwards, unfortunately.


The SNACK Drawer (and the LTE Modem card) were both briefly shown in the Linus Tech Tips video review of the Framework 16. :slight_smile:


OMG I needed a place for my gum, great solution! :joy:


I just stick mine to the palm rest /s

Framework is not a product. It’s a revolution

I agree. That’s why I joined in. Plus, I felt confident in @nrp’s ability to make a good product because of how well made the Oculus Rift CV1 was. Hopefully we get more people designing all sorts of accessories and expansion cards for Frameworks. And hopefully other companies will follow Framework closely enough to allow for community supported modifications of them too!

Do you know the internal height or just internal dimensions in general? I am interested in the large one for a very specific use case of holding a single Werthers Original caramel.

Sure, the Medium drawer is stepped inside, for your purposes, I think only the space in the larger area matters. Here are those dimensions from a real printed drawer, as best I could do with my calipers (as opposed to the CAD perfect ones):

Just measured the digital dimensions. As for the messy sizes, I think my mixing of imperial (for my ease of comprehension) and metric (for 3D printing) has just made this a bit of a mule project.

Width (red) = 0.994" (25.25mm)
Depth (green) = 0.879" (22.33mm)
Height (blue) = 0.281" (7.148mm)
