BMW e46 magnetic tablet holder stripe

I used 10x8x30 mm neodym magnets to the final model. They are strong enough to hold the 10 inch iPad in place in case of the most extreme conditions.

So i finally made my version of the ho,der.
Luckally, my dash has a small flat surface locally, so i did not had to make a specific interface piece.
Just glued the magnets on the inside of the dash and done.
After removing the tablet, nothing is visible.
Still great inputs how you did this.
Hi FNS720, thanks to google translate i could kind a follow the procedure,
as a matter of facts, yesterday evening, i was taking pics from the exact same angle in my car, trying to figure out how to get that rear curved shape, your clay suggestion is dead easy and i will go for that. The pink foam translation got messed up,and as i cannot figure out how you used that, i'll go for the clay trick.
Also checked hte magnets you use, on the strip you have, i think the weight they can hold was 17 kg.
The only thing i want to do different, is using a plastic clamshell around my Nexus 7, and add that .3 mm strip on the shell.. Reason is that when i take the Nexus out the car, i have a protective case on the tablet , plus i don't have to tape anything on the tablet directly.
My car does nto have that big a space in between the fan vents and the mid console, guess roughly only7 mm, iwant to keep it clean just as you did, i'll post some pics when i get there, i even downloaded your STL and used it to measure in SKetchup. By the way, you can actually buy thin aluminium labels,similar look as the alu strip in your beemer, would look better than that semi transparent part.
It does not touch but it covers. I attached a 0.3mm Lindab steel stripe to the back of the iPad case and with that the magnets hold the iPad securely on its place. You can read about this here (sorry, it's in hungarian): http://fns.csokolade.hu/2012/1...
