Summary

Boss tried to save money by purchasing a 10 foot tall "EZ Pop Up Display Exhibit Booth" on ebay. Figures he saved a grand total of $150 over the higher quality name-brand booth available from our local print shop!

Figures at a recent show my coworker tried to help dissassemble the booth, but wouldn't start at the bottom of the booth to remove the arms. He ultimately cracked and destroyed the plastic parts of the arms that hold up the booth's frame. Of COURSE since this is a cheap no-name brand booth, there was no way to track down replacement parts. Ultimately my boss tried to be cheap, but ended up spending more through the 15+ revisions I needed to make a "working" model.

Proof yet again that going "cheap" isn't always the best option.

(Note my finished item appears to be shifted left about 1mm when installed on booth, but this does not impact booth performance whatsoever.)

Instructions

I have tried every way possible to orient this model so I could print without supports (even trying alternative versions of the model with supports built into the model) with limited success.

I found printing on my Makerbot Replicator with these settings worked best:

Infill: 10%
Shells: 2
Support: Exterior Only (Though Full support might also work)

(Note picture is of original item, not printed model. The uploaded model eliminated all unecessary features because Sketchup stinks!)
