Just what I wanted. Required a bit of dremeling to clean out the front tube.

ahora parece que ya esta arreglado. un poco raro. bueno yo lo he tenido que arreglar en NX11 estaban los modelos separadas sus partes. como si le faltase ser unido mediante booleanas.

Buen diseño. he encontrado un pequeño problema en el diseño a la hora de meterlo al simplify. al final lo he podido arreglar. paso los modelos 3d.

I use to check all my models in Netfabb before uploading and Netfabb did not report or show any errors. Also Cura prints them fine.

However, I updated the files now with exported versions from Netfabb so they should print fine now with other slicers, too.

Isn't this just a remix of Hachmeister's stand (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2587809).

New Hook Shape

Lol, that's a funny co-incidence since I never saw Hachmeister's stand. Thanks for letting me know.

But there is a simple reason why both look so similar: the design of this stand is a natural result if you a) don't want to use any screws and b) if you want it to be foldable. Then you are literally forced to use such a design as a logical conclusion.

However, Hachmeister placed the arms at the inner side, so his stand can't be folded as far as I can see. I did this "mistake" too with the first design of my stand but placed them on the outer sides later on.

Probably depends on your perspective and where the designer started from... did they start with the other model and modify it? Or did they start from an older concept/design (this mechanism is found in deck chairs for example) and design from scratch.
