After a few tries, I am finally happy with this 3d-printed stand.</div><br /><br /> <div class="par_text">(Click on the pictures for hi-res)</div><br /><br /> <div class="par_photo"><a href="IMG_0655.jpg"><img src="IMG_0655s.jpg" alt=""></img></a></div><br /><br /> <div class="par_text"> It is very easy and natural to use the rig in this position, it looks like a "small IC-9100". The only issue I've found is turning it on, and off. The power button is a bit hard and the rig slides on the table, but you can use your index finger to hold it from behind. I also tested placing four little double-sided tape pieces under the corners so it does not move. Also, under the four corners, there are small 1mm holes that can be used as a guide just in case you want to screw this base to a larger heavier) one. You can see them in the pictures if you look carefully.</div><br /><br /> <div class="par_photo"><a href="IMG_0664.jpg"><img src="IMG_0664s.jpg" alt=""></img></a></div><br /><br /> <div class="par_photo"><a href="IMG_0668.jpg"><img src="IMG_0668s.jpg" alt=""></img></a></div><br /><br /> <div class="par_text"> I can print it in a few other colors, white, grey, orange. Printing it takes 20 hours at this quality, and the process is not as simple or cheap as you may think. I am selling the base, complete with stainless screws and washers for 30EUR plus shipping. Registered shiping worldwide is around 10EUR, which makes a total of 40EUR. Send me an email to rbarrioss(_at_)outlook.com for details.</div><br /><br /> <div class="par_photo"><a href="IMG_0671.jpg"><img src="IMG_0671s.jpg" alt=""></img></a></div><br /><br /> <div class="par_text"> I also missed a position mark on the AF and SQL knobs, so I drilled a tiny hole on them and filled with white paint. I do this under the microscope with a 0.7mm drill, look at the results. If you get a base and send me your knobs, I will do the same to them:</div><br /><br /> <div class="par_photo"><a href="IMG_0661.jpg"><img src="IMG_0661s.jpg" alt=""></img></a></div><br /><br /> <div class="par_signature"><i>Roberto Barrios, EB4EQA</i></div> </div> </div> </div> <div id="main_w_b_bottom"> </div> </div> <div style="clear: both;"> </div> </div> <!-- /MAIN --> <!-- FOOTER --> <!-- FOOTER --> <div id="footer"> <p class="legal">@2012 Roberto Barrios.
