iphone 4 shower hook by PLanetaryGear Oct 5, 2012


This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online tinkercad.com/things/00JgQZq4ra0

A hook to hold my iPhone up out of the water yet still close enough to hear the music or audiobook. Designed to hold my own iPhone 4, though tall enough for a 5 but wider and thicker as necessary to manage the skinny case I have it in. You may want to adjust both the width of the hook for your own shower doors as well as the width of the iphone slot. I forgot to add the holes on the bottom for the speakers and to drain any water that got in there, so I just drilled them after the printing. Dont forget to remove the support bar that prints up to hold the top corner. See picts.

Sounds she's got it down to an art. Impressive!

Ziplock bag, stat!

this device was not meant to imply there was wisdom of having your phone in the shower ;) Only to mitigate the danger if you've already decided to do this. My wife has been doing this to her 4 for a year and so far it's not been bothered by the steam or tiny splashes of water.

printed with 1 shell, .25mm slices and a raft. I was going for speed and not pulling off the board and not detail, since there is very little detail .1mm slicing would just take more time. This is a tricky print due to the small contact size with the platform and if printing in ABS a raft was necessary for me to get it to print at all and even so there was some warping and even the raft pulled up a little at the far corner, but not enough to effect the usefulness of the final device. The support bar can be easily snipped off after it's all done. If the support bar is getting knocked by your extruder check the plastic filament width settings, even a few hundredths of a mm off can cause poor output.

V2 was rebuilt in sketchup from scratch and has hold down pads so that a raft is no longer necessary. I also added the sound holes and a reflector to send the sound more at you instead of just straight down. print with only 1 extra shell and 100% infill. I also used a slow extrusion speed of 45mm/s as faster seemed to knock out the support bar. The sound reflector really needs to be another mm thicker as it doesn't seem to be possible to print it without it cracking in the middle as you can see mine did.

Do you know iPhones aren't even remotely moisture resistant? You are going to steam it to death if not only turn the moisture indicators red and void the warranty. I recommend you put it in a ziplock bag.

A ziplock wouldn't be a bad idea at all. I've noticed my wife has been wedging hers between the shampoo bottles so another solution was necessary ;)
