Any-phone Arm Band by CidVilas May 3, 2010

Featured Thing!


So i have been dreaming of this design for a while, but certain parts are still left to conquer. Hopefully someone out there can help. I have provided the OpenSCAD model in order to speed things up. Its \"parameterized\" so you simply change variable values and you get a whole new container!

The concept here is that the object is printed with the right size and spec to your phone. You then cut and sew together an elastic band. Let it be known that i do not have any real prior experience with sewing, so if i can do it, you can too. :)

Potential Future Mods: Round mounting profile so its more comfortable to wear, walls that curve in to lock in phone, completely sealed case to protect from rain and spills.

I look forward to seeing other peoples ideas!

Great idea! You can also make a case that will mount an Arduino! What would you do with it then?

Mobile Arduino arm band??

Step 1: Print the provided file with your favorite 3D printer.

  • Be sure to set your phones dimensions to truly customize your design. Also note that you are able to set the width of the elastic band used.

Step 2: Cut and an elastic band to your biceps length. If you choose to mount this somewhere else, then cut to length necessary. I used some, not so sticky, velcro. Find some very sticky velcro to prevent this from undoing and falling off your arm!

Then simply string the elastic band through the printed object and mount.
