This is an iPad stand made with dowels, vinyl tubing, nuts and bolts, zip ties and two small 3D printed parts.


To make the frame, it's easiest to make the outer part, first. Since the triangle that the ipad rests on which rests inside the outer part, you can sorta do the design on the fly. After putting the frame together, print a couple of the included nubs and slip them on to the lower dowel. Hot glue them for security.

I've included an STL for the nubs that fit dowels that are 15.5mm diameter.

You could use a Makerbot to make a center joint capable of taking 5 dowels and another making 6, and make a small geodesic dome or sphere.  Dowels run as long as 3 1/2 feet, so your geodesic sphere or dome could be used as a tent skeleton.


I can't stop giggling at this!
