Nexus 7 Tablet & Sprint Nexus S 4G Holder/Arms by Caucasian Nov 15, 2012

Description

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.

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 : )
Well some people have bad necks/backs and NEED to lie down a lot, others just need free hands...
Uhm....why do you need a hands free mount in THAT position?

Instructions

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.

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

<p>So why are the STLs not rendering here?</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>Cool.<br>I'm working on one for the ipad.<br>Wooden dowels are going to be used for the long span.</p>

<p>Will that fold out of the way?</p>

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