Picture of Creating a fancy stand for a hologram
My team at work recently received a really cool thing: a hologram made from a 3D model. It's really dramatic, but I felt it was not being shown to its full potential: we needed a way to display it.

I created an easel using 123D Design, made for 3D printing. You can see it in the 3d viewer below and in the picture.

Step 1: Concept design

I wanted a shape that was futuristic (to go with the hologram), easily 3D printable, and that really made the most of computer based design tools.

My concept was to make a series of "blades" with a notch cut out that would act as an easel.
