hi

well i'm about 2/3weeks thinking of how it works..
and i don't have any clue..

you can make a neck but it will go down to eath because of the gravity force..

and on the photo it will be set on the position you want..


any idea's how this Technic works and the name for it?

In german it's called "Schwanenhals" (gooseneck?), but I don't know how it works.

Gooseneck is a valid name. The metal part is a spiral of metal sheet profile, very tight and overlapping, so internal friction keeps the shape if the load is small. Others just have a flexible metal wire inside, with external ribbed cover.

I work here
It definitely wouldn't be easy to print something with enough clearance not to bind, but tight enough to have rigidity in one piece. maybe if you make pieces that snapped together with a hole up the middle for the cable to run through.

Hi Janis,

In principle it is not a lot different to this, but it would take a fair bit of tinkering to make it work as a one piece print... it could probably be done quite easily with snap fit ball joint type parts as a multi-piece print though.
