Galaxy S3 Car Mount W/ NFC Tag by kcmelty Oct 7, 2012

Description

I designed this mount for my Samsung Galaxy S3 without a case. It mounts into my CD slot that is .125" tall.

The center blind hole and cap are for a NFC tag. I used NFC Task Launcher and their 1" dia. tag.

I tried printing the entire plate in ABS on a 115 degree heated bed with glass and AquaNet... warped to the point of failure about 2.5 hours into the build. I will try again this time individually and see what happens.

Thanks! I use it every day and it works great.

Dude! That is a wicked design. Nice work!

Hi really like your design. Would it be possible to upload the source? I want to modify the holder so that it can fit onto my UP! printer bed. I tried importing the stl in sketchup but couldnt view the model. Thanks!

I uploaded the Solidworks 2013 files and a .step file. If you can't modify these let me know what you need done to fit it on your printer

Haha, I never thought of making something that mounted in an old media slot.

My old truck might be getting a GPS holder for it's 8 Track deck!

This keeps making me laugh, "CDs, Meh; I'll stick some plastic in there instead."
