iphone5 Dock, screw down & headphone compatible by studio-napkin Oct 27, 2012

Description

This is inspired by thing:32633, I liked the look but wanted a couple more features. It can be screwed down to a table or heavy block of wood. Also the phone can go in with headphones attached. I mirrored this dent to the right side to allow some sound to escape the external speaker.

- It was modeled in ProE-4 and printed on an UP! printer

its scaled too small

Hi again. My wife loves your dock. She is wondering if this design could be modified to be wider for the new iPad Mini -- it fits fine on the phone dock, but she would like to see a much wider base. I might try to make a derivative myself, but my last attempt at modifying the step file didn't work for me. :(

As I expected, my wife was quite pleased with the dock.   

I think she would rather that it wasn't fixed to any one place, so that she can move it around.

When I have some time, I'm going to look into finding some kind of weighted base (or ballast)...  But this new connector is rather grabby, so I'm not sure that would work well enough.

I wish I can affording sending this design out to a metal-printing service, or to a metal casting service.  This would be really neat done as a solid chunk of metal!

Thanks for the comment toybuilder, I feel like I'm spreading Christmas joy now. Your desk looks a little to nice to put screws into. But it makes the doc so much nicer to use if it does not lift or move when removing the phone.
