Travelers Tablet Stand by Forgetful_Guy Aug 3, 2012


This is a lightweight, transportable stand for tablets (designed for the iPad 1) which enables the user to comfortably position the device at two angles (30°/65°) on a reasonably flat surface.

The four flat parts can be carried in the tablet's bag, and it can be assembled quickly wherever needed.

This is the first viable version, improvements might follow.

Make sure to thoroughly clean the slides on the bridges and the grooves on the legs well before trying to put it together (keyhole-files work well)!

The parts are meant to slide together with relative ease.

It might be required to file down the noses on the slides, or make the grooves deeper with a file, for the parts to fit well.

If they jam up when you slide them together, try wiggling a little bit around the sliding axis, and then slide them apart/file more/try again.

I do not recommend clipping the bridges on - they probably wouldn't last long.

The Grooves on the Legs have to face outward when you put it together.

Recommended Settings:

Layer height: 0.2mm Solid layers: 4 Perimeters: 3 (0.3mm Nozzle) Fill-in: 0.3 (hexagonal works well)

Printable on a Huxley, although I had to do the legs individually.

Hope someone (else) finds it useful.
