    Hello,

    can anyone help me with making a Kickstand for a 3ft by 6ft piece of 3/16 Foamcore? I've printed 2 poster and will mount to 3x16 adhesive foamcore. (Tall Standing)

    I have two sheets of 4ft x 6ft foamcore and the cardboard they were rapped in. So, each board will have a 2ft by 6ft offcut leftover [and still the cardboard wrapper] I have access to more cardboard. I just don't know what to do with it.

    I have a Fletcher 3000 (up to 60 inches; I could score and cut) and a 4x8 table/mat/long rulers.

    I could print and cut on top of a template if needed. (If someone has something I could use)

    If I need to get something else, I'll get it. I also have a Home Depot, just in case. It's a short term throw away application, if that makes a difference.

    Much appreciation,

    Andre

    Message me if you want strut templates.
    You can cut them by hand if you need to.

    I'd probably use the double for something that size but either can be scaled to any size.

    I always use coroplast and just cut one "wall", nothing nearly as fancy
    as what this guy has, but he does have a cool system.

    Instead of the braces cut into the coro, I would just
    hand-cut the coro to shape, put velcro tabs on both sides and
    give them a length of velcro so they can adjust how wide apart
    they want the supports
