Adjustable tenting stand for Iris

An open source parametric tenting stand by NazFab/AlSpheric.

This is a parametric model for a keyboard stand for the Iris keyboard with adjustable tenting.

I believe it could be adapted for most split keyboards with similar construction (i.e. top/bottom plates with screws and stand-offs) – AlSpheric.

The stand features four threaded feet. One can thread the bolts into and then tighten the jam nuts against to keep the bolts in place.

Print all models as is, don't mirror left to produce the right or the threads will be incorrect.

This was generated by a program (parametric model): https://github.com/Ivaan/shapes/tree/master/IrisKeyboardStand

The modelling starts with a list of coordinates for the screws holding the keyboard plates together as well as coordinates for the feet.

The program uses this 3D modelling library: github.com/deadsy/sdfx
