Adjustable Universal Replicator Phone Mount
by c15da, published
This is a mount I made that allows a phone to be hung from a Replicator to be used as a real-time webcam (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pas.webcam&hl=en), or for recording video/time-lapse of a print. This mount should accommodate phones of any size, and has been tested with a Moto Droid, iPhone, and even a Note II. This mount is also adjustable by sliding on the rim of the Replicator, and the Phone mount itself can separately go up and down with hooks built into the Replicator mount, and matching "sockets" in the phone mount, letting you get the perfect camera height for your print. To hold the phone into the phone mount, there are several holes at different distances from the wall, so that filament may be inserted into the holes depending on the model and location of the camera.
Original file was made in Tinkercad.
First print out the parts, the full plate itself may be a bit too big for the tray, so I also attached the two parts separately. Once both parts are printed, the hooks on the replicator mount should attach perfectly into the middle holes of the phone mount, by sliding the hooks into the holes, then sliding the replicator mount up to secure it. This may require a bit of pressure the first time, but it does get easier every subsequent time. The hooks can also go into any of the holes, allowing the phone mount to be lower or higher. Next, to secure a phone in there, simply place it in the stand, and based on the model of phone, place filament into the holes needed, based on thickness and height of phone. It is recommended to have one piece of filament near the top of the phone, and one near the bottom.
