Transporting your flight stand for CY-6 can be a pain. Specially with the ball magnets. These just love to grab each other. Using my CAD I made a carrying tray.

Inventive :)

But, there are nine.

Seriously though.

This is the kind of thing I don't get.

They look great and will work well, but…

Using a printer to print board seems a waste.

A laser cut (and I only say that because they are hexes) peice of mdf or ply or even plastic sheet sounds more appropriate.

It would definitely be cheaper and easier for mass production, but even for a one off, I'd expect.

Maybe that's another bit of kit people could look into.

Maybe he only has a 3D printer and not a laser cutter. Filament is cheap. Can't imagine that costing him much at all. He didn't mention mass production, so it probably isn't an issue. I think he wanted a way to carry his flight stands. Had CAD skills and a 3D printer. His problem was solved.
