This was inspired by "Paper Clip to set up straightforward picture background" http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:95180 The curves of slepcat's layout are an excellent notion, but I needed to use heavier paper in relation to the slots adapted, and I wished the paper would not come out of the slots so readily. Additionally , I needed a sweep which could stand on its own with more equilibrium.
Although much less refined as the first, the stand in this layout holds thin paper nicely and additionally allows for thicker sheets. The back post helps support a qualifications that is higher, and there's a plate supporting the sweep which can be weighted for extra stability.
Please see Directions for assembly notes.


The pin print and fill twice at 100% fill additionally. Printing each pin alone produces cleanser prints. The stands are attached to by the platens are a force fit into the receiving holes of the platens and as revealed using. A spot of super glue at the platen end of the pivot is likely to allow it to be long-lasting. Although most folks find this works, there have been a few who have had the pins print out too little; if so, use a 3/16" bolt.
To use, open the platen and feed the paper between the pivot as well as the stand. Holding the paper against the stand, shut the platen and fix it below the hook on the stand.
The level plates behind the curves are for weights that are needed for heavier paper. If your plan is to make use of just one size of paper, pasting the stands to a stiff cardboard or foamcore board is likely to make the set up more secure and simpler.
