A simple snap-on stand for 16cm diameter plastic reels

Version 2.0:
Now with a stronger lock on the arms, better fit between the arms and thicker arms to support reels spinning more easily.


Print 2 stands and 2 arms or print the whole set STL.

Insert one arm inside the other (like 2 Us facing each other), snap ends on the stands. See the pictures if explanation isn't clear.

PS: the green plastic pictures are od the old version. Use version 2.0, much more stable (white illustration).

please upload .stl exports of this, i have no software that supports .skp

I've converted this to .stl files for you and posted it as a derivative here, see thing 37913

FYI .skp files are from google sketchup, its an awesome and FREE program to create 3d models and it's great with 3d printers

a) you can just add the files to this thing, there is 'edit' at the top
b) Sketchup is fun, but there is no linux version
