Very basic slide on holder for a Nexus 7 tablet and Nexus S 4G (Sprint variant confirmed working), as well as matching straight, 45, and 90 degree arms for making random setups for the tablet/phone. Can be used for a multitude of rigging setups for just about anything.

EDIT:Added Nexus S 4G holder.


Printed on a Solidoodle2, the 45 degree arm is 123mm, the rest should be a max of 115mm. I printed solid infill to make sure I didn't get a concussion, they are pretty sturdy. None have been through Netfabb, but printed fine on mine with Skeinforge/Pronterface.

A 'base' needs to be made to attach this to. Using SketchUp, the two holes need to be 18mm apart in the middle, and 2.5mm in radius (my measurements, at least). I made one that fits with friction over my headboard, and it works just fine, as seen in the picture.

It can be glued, or screwed together using 3/16th bolts and wing nuts (wing nuts not necessary for the arms, the 2.5mm hole makes a very firm grip).

I will mark this as a work in progress until I have a functioning multiple use clamp, as well as some other more interesting arms.

Great design! I am going to adapt this to use on my bike trainer, as well as my hammock. Trying to hold onto your tablet while watching Netflix is a chore... Thank you for posting it.
@ Vapor: Dirty minds beget dirty ideas : )

Uhm....why do you need a hands free mount in THAT position?

Well some people have bad necks/backs and NEED to lie down a lot, others just need free hands...

Sorry for not getting the clamp made yet... new job, yada yada. Will try to do it this weekend.

So why are the STLs not rendering here?

No idea why not. I did not run any of these through cloudfabb, you may try that. These did print fine using Skeinforge and Pronterface.

I'm working on one for the ipad.
Wooden dowels are going to be used for the long span.

Will that fold out of the way?

This one isn't made for folding yet, but I've been tinkering with the idea plus a 'quick release' for the tablet holder.
