Great design. First pass on a Pegasus 12 with PETG a little hot was a pain to separate and ended up snapping the support arm that clips into the notches. Postmortem it was completed fused in there and would not have ever come apart. I'm going to drop the temp I print in the PETG, increase the Horizontal Size compensation from the post above in S3d, increase the layer height to cut down time and bump the cooling to maximum when it hits those layers and above that start on the actual shaft it swings around on.

Very nice print! I printed the V2 version and it printed 100% Flawlessly. I am going to try to scale it down to 50% for a phone.

Made two of these, one for my tablet and the other for my phone.
Two changes I would make, I believe others have also made these comments as well:

  • Would it be possible to redesign so that opening and folding it can be done without having to lift it off a surface
  • It would be great if the two supports could fold away

Otherwise great design and for me printed without problem

Git Gud Design :D i used triangle infil but which infil is the best considering strenght? I printed it on Creality Ender 3 Stock 0,4mm nozzle 20mm/s walls 40mm/s other thingis :D 0,1mm layer height and 0,48mm layer width took 10h to print, soon i upload photos :)

Don't print this if you have 0,4 or higer tolerances on your machine. Printed this but couldn't able to break loose the part. End up breaking it. Waste of my 3 hours. :(

Sorry to hear that! Yeah, the tolerances are quite tight. Did you use the latest model version beginning with 'py'?

Ender 3, 0.2mm, PLA, 20% infill. Works perfectly!

Glad to hear it! Thanks for the feedback!

I printed this at 0.4mm layer height in abs on a flashforge creator pro. I used simplify3d to slice it, you can increase the sepertion between components by using the dimensional adustment cohtrols on tbe "other" tab, set the "horizontal size"compensation" value to -0.2 mm, this will shrink all tbe outlines and increase the spacing between components so they wont fuse together during printing.

Sounds like a good work around. Sorry everyone's struggling with binding parts! I'll try and get some time to sort it out once and for all.

looks great, but it is difficulty to seperate all parts.

Невероятно. Я впервые печатаю изделие в сборе. Не по частям. И все работает. Все части прекрасно отделились друг от друга. Очень хороша подгонка. Like! Like! Like!

Tried printing this, but it's a pain in the ass.

The concept is fantastic, and it "kinda" works, unfortunately the base seems to get moulded as one part. It might be worthwhile to decrease the tolerances between the arms to account for issues when attempting to get all the parts moving (and that the majority of people have their first layer height slightly lower to increase adhesion), alternatively, some form of peelable raft like structure that can compensate for first layer squashing.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. Sorry to hear you're having trouble with it. That's a good point. I think the design is basically set up for what worked well on my own printer, but it might be worth updating the model with looser tolerances between the different components. I think the spacing between the base and the inner part of the frame is only about 0.4mm! When I get some time I'll try and produce another version that'll be less prone to binding. There's no real need for them to be so close together.

Sounds great! As I said, the design and concept are damn good, just a few tweaks and I'll definitely print it again!
