Most of today's smartphones are rectangles with rounded edges. Therefore I have designed a rectangle with rounded edge holder.


The attached STL was generated for my HTC Evo 4G LTE. Open up the openscad file and attach the dimensions, round corner radius, and tolerance to match your phone and printer.

UPDATE: Better scad file and vertical iphone 4s stand

UPDATE2: Scad file now supports a tilt. Angles above 10 degrees not recommended, unless you make your base very wide. Uploaded tilt vertical stand for my EVO 4G LTE as example.

UPDATE3: Refactored and improved scad file. There should be no more strangeness with the bottom of angled stands. Also, steeper angles are supported, I've done up to 25 degrees with the phone on its side. Increase base thickness (variable bo index 1) to avoid having a hole where the phone rests.

Awesome update!  My renders are not filling in the area below the phone to the bottom of the print area.   So the bottom of the phone base frame is not in contact with the print surface.  Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Which stand are you using? One of the STL files or the openscad?

Nice! Just in time for the new iPhone5. I wonder if you could build in a tilt parameter to slant the phone back a little?
