I always like things that are versatile and can be adapted for different purpose. This design is something I have been working on for days, trying to decide the best shape and structure that will work.

The photos are slightly different from the STL file uploaded as they were from the first draft design which had more folds than the final design.

I'm hoping that by sharing the design file here, I can see some copies made using different materials. Just want to know if the design works with ABS, PLA or nylon.

Look forward to seeing some of these made by you!


I printed this on a UP! Plus printer. 0.3mm, fast speed, 10 degree of support.

When collapsed, it can be used as an iPhone/iPod stand. When expaned, it can be used as an iPad stand or business card holder.

If more than one units are printed, they can be joined together by pushing the 3 buttons on the side into the holes on the other side.
