I was tired of having to waste quite a bit of space to store the cardboard box I was using as a lightbox, so I designed something better. The lightbox folds up into a compact form, allowing for easy storage and locks into place when folded closed. It even has a carrying handle.
All you need are a few shorter M3 screws (I used 14mm length), 2 Long M3's (50mm), a few 1/2inch wood screws to attach to the dowels, 2 sheets of 1/4 inch ply/MDF/other ect material in whatever rectangular dimensions you'd like, and 5 cut 1/2inch diameter dowels, 4 of which act as the hinged arms and one of which acts as the handle. (Also some transparent cloth to hang in the arms and some paper/cloth to act as a backdrop)
You'll need to print:
- 4 of the DowelHingeSwivels
- 2 of the DowelHingeTop 1&2
- 2 of the DowelHingPlateEdge 1&2
And one of everything else.
