Fat case phone-stand by LightningPhil Jan 4, 2012

Description

My phone lives in a case that's rather bulky. This helps keep it alive when I drop it now and then:O)

However it does not fit so well into bespoke stands. So I made a stand that accepts the phone in it’s fat case.

Behold the “fat case phone-stand”

It’s for a Galaxy S2 in an Otter case.

This thing is awesome. I've printed it several times and use it daily.

Thanks erossman - the sharing and building on designs is good:O)

Phil, I love the design and the fit for my SGS2 (scaling up 175% lets this stand fit a Nexus 7 in it's folio case as well). The vertical risers have a critical flaw, in that they are printed in layers that cross cut the riser.

I am going to redraw your part as a three part assembly. I am going to make the vertical risers attach to the base by a screw. This would allow me to print the vertical risers on their side, where the riser would have the strength of the whole perimeter by a single uninterrupted deposition layer.

What I understand of the word 'bespoke' is that it is a tailored item. not off the shelf... (presumably inverse of my understanding of the authors intent).

I'm not sure that word means what you think it means...

Bespoke refers originally to the practice of hand-tailoring garments. In the UK and Europe, using the term Bespoke in fact carries specific legal penalties if any part of the garment is automated or machine made, and they have several other terms that are used for garments that are hand finished
or use some but not all hand stitching.

I think what you meant is that your phone does not fit so well into mass-produced stands. This is the bespoke stand you created to solve that problem.

Excelent, pick on the scientist and correct his English. You do appear to have understood though. That'll do...

:-D
