This photo frame would looks like that the photo is floating on the wall. This design is exactly the size of a traditional 4"×6"(KG). Please use the push-pin or the screw, either will be fine.

This is very cool.
I have a metal wall divider at work and will be holding these up with magnets.

Made one out of PLA on a Rostock Max v2 with 0% infill and my photo fits great. I wish there were a version that doesn't stick out so far but I still love it :)

Easy print, my wife loves these, I will be adding modified height and re-posting soon.

Could this be made customizable

I printed this and the pictures are always too lose especially if held horizontally.

This happens to me too! We need to make it customizable.

just scale it down by 2%

Interesting! I'll be printing this.

Hi, please where do I download the file so I can print this? Thank you

To download it, go under the "Thing Files" tab.

Wonder how it will look with a bunch of those randomly orientated with a led-strip behind it....

look good will print for others

Great idea would also work for a business card.

pretty nice idea - I like stopping it at just about 92% to stop the top layer and leave the infill patterns revealed - look like exposed architectural trusses.

well thought out idea. Amazing!

Brilliant in its simplicity. Well done, sir.

A brilliant idea...I love it. It looks like a slightly larger distance between holders might be an improvement to reduce 'flexing' of picture. Or, is the picture showing less flex than it appears? I realize some 'flexing' is necessary to hold the photo. Did you experiment with different distances?

I think less infill will also improve the flexing

Thanks! I tried some different distance. Actually, I think It depends on the 3D printer's ability. If it's slightly loose, please adjust the size (%) when you print it.

I've been printing these on MakerBot 5th Gen and yes, my photos have been falling out. I'm gonna try one out at 98% or so and see what I get...

Great idea! Thanks for sharing.
