I have a thick leather cover for my iPhone, I like the cover but it's a pain to take off and put on so I wanted a cradle that would hold my iPhone with its cover, I also wanted one with enough clearance so that I could put the iPhone in it with the charging cable attached.

NOTE: The image I have is just a normal iPhone not one in its case as intended.

I messed around with several designs and finally came up with one I likes but it would not print happily in one piece so I broke it into 2 halves with a "jig saw" like join.


This design has not been tested

2 STLs 1 half each file, print out and clip together.

SKP file attached in case anybody wants it.

I ran both parts and they work great, just what I wanted for the iphone, actually I never even thought of it. But a friend said one day, someone should make an iphone stand. so I started looking. they are all made for phones without covers. 10 mm width was the largest I could find. I also have a thick cover on my phone so yours worked really well. I don't post or blog or even email for fun. but I wanted to let you know with a little tweak here and there you can achieve this in one build. I have the Replicactor 2 ,I am having a hell of time figuring out how it works. but anyway, in the latest version of makerware I was able to put both builds on the work surface, center them both and fit them together, (it took a bit to figure it out). then rotate both builds at the same time. running the part at the base first. (gota tell you because of the dove tail, I thought I would crash. But I ran them together and was impressed with myself !! It worked !! So thanks for the base of the project. I saved the file, so if you want it e-mail me and I will send it to you.
