I needed extra space under the printer for the heated bed power supply, and also to securely put the power-brick in for tidiness.

This system with three pieces per foot allows simple manual locking of the hinges and opening/swinging from any four sides of the printer.

All parts are designed to print without support.

Some filing may be necessary so the hinge and lever rotate nicely.

The lever snaps into 45 degree positions by slightly bending a plastic octagon shape.

Tape and cardboard may be necessary to make the wood fit tightly into the hinge and woodbracket pieces.

The wooden baseplate is the same dimensions as the outer dimensions of the  3D printer (Ultimaker in this case).
