If you've printed this, please read this update! (if you haven't, read it anyways)
For extra strength on the legs either
- Print them horizontally.
- Use the new hollow leg and add a metal insert (190mm long x 3mm in diameter)
The flute stand
Did you ever want a flute stand that can collapse? No? Oh, you already had one made out of metal? That's fine... my sister's broke, so I made this one. This second version, which will be called the "rounded leg version" has a slight wobble to it due to the legs being not quite as thick as they should be. However, through extensive testing (me sitting at the table bending the legs back and forth and from the flute actually staying on it), it seems to work fine. Even so, use at your own risk!
If anything, you can print this out so that you have a model that is more complex than normal (as there is a screw and three moving legs that fit inside).
Lastly, I don't know anything about flutes. The main shaft of this stand is 17mm accross. If that fits inside your flute/piccolo, you should be fine. Additionally, please use felt so you don't scratch the inside of your instrument! (see below)
- 1 Shell
- 1 Base
- 3 Legs
- 3 Metal Rods (if using hollow legs, which I recommend)
I recommend using a brim for the legs if you're printing them vertically (like I did).
Add a piece (or multiple pieces) of thin felt to the flute stand shaft so that the inside of the flute does not get scratched.
Insert metal rods (if using hollow leg)
This adds a lot of strength to the flute stand.
