I’ve designed a workbench that folds up for storage against a wall. (It sticks out from the wall by only 5" when it’s stored!) When it’s unfolded and setup with the top in place, it’s a sturdy 3’ x 5’ mobile workbench. I created the model unfolded/setup but I want to show it (on another layer?) folded up for storage. I can’t figure out a good way way to do it without a ton of rotating and moving stuff around. The hinges, especially would be a huge pain ITA; each one (there are 12 of them) would need to have both wings rotated and then I’d have to move the whole hinge. I sure hope there’s a better way!
If you click through to the model and can’t figure out how it works, it’s pretty simple… The top is removable. Then the two front cross members fold toward the back and the two back cross members fold toward the front. This brings the two end assemblies all the way together.
