I have an idea for a simple and fast to use darkroom easel. I have a model made out of board but it would be more useful if it were heavier and sturdier.
I’m not sure if it would be better to use wood or metal or 3d printing and I don’t know how to do any of those things.
The current design consists of three components, two of which are combined into one.
- Rectangle 10 by 8 inches
- Rectangle 10 by 8 inches with rectangular hole of 5 by 7 inches
- Rectangle 7 by 5 inches with rectangular hole of 4.5 by 6 inches*
*0.25 border on long sides, 0.25 border on one short side, 0.75 border on the other
1 is aligned with and attached permanently to 2
3 is separate and is inserted into and removed from the hole in 2 during use.
There is a small opening on one short side of 2 to allow the easy removal of 3.
I know nothing but if someone would be up for providing some basic guidance or instruction I would be very grateful.
