The frame will take about an hour to print, each stand about 30 minutes at 50 - 70% fill. A higher fill percentage makes a sturdy frame with a good base weight. The stand slot is designed to be a tight fit, you may need to trim and manually finish the print.

The slot can be cleared of any overhangs by inserting a corner of the frame and sliding it across. The frame inserts at an optimal desktop viewing angle. If you want to wall hang the frame use a small nail or hook to fit the rear mounting hole on top side for the orientation.
