Springy Stand #3DPrinting #3DThursday

muzz64 shared this project on Thingiverse!

The ‘Springy Stand’ is a… ‘springy stand!’

It looks great as a decorative stand to put small things on but it also wobbles and bobbles because it’s springy. How springy it is depends on how much infill you apply… if you plan to use it for coins or light weight jewellery you can use minimal infill but to hold things like men’s watches you need quite high infill (…or to place it in a very well balanced way).

This is a fun little stand that is approx. 110mm tall and uses 70gm filament at 50% (max. recommended) infill with a Raft. The less infill applied the more the stand will spring and bobble around… great for lightweight things but a firmer spring is required for heavier things so increase your infill. The recommended range is from 15 to 50%.

Seeing how much the infill percentage changes how firm the spring is and how much weight it will support is interesting as well… the difference from 15% to 50% is significant to say the least. If you only intend on using the ‘Springy Stand’ for light weight things and want it to wobbly use 15 – 20% infill… but if you want it to support a heavy mans watch use40- 50% infill and it will be a far more rigid spring.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
