This is a cool little stand to securely hold your ipad mini on your bedside table.


I needed a stand to hold my iPad mini on my bedside table. Makes an amazing alarm clock !

The stand has splayed legs for stability and has built-in horns to redirect the output from the speakers to the front when the ipad is in portrait mode.

The sound is surprisingly good but a little lacking in bass.

The stand was designed using ProDesktop 8 and printed on a UP! 3D printer in white ABS. The printer was set to loose fill at a .25mm resolution with 30 degrees support structure. I have optimised the design for clean snap off of supports.

Pro-Tec surface protector strips have been glued to the base to stop it sliding around the desktop when being used.

The lightning connector is a close fit and you may need to flex the cable a little to get some room.

It needs to be a little taller for the cord to make the angle without putting a lot of stress on it, as is the cord holds the base up a little bit making it wobbly.

It might be nice if the slot for the Lightning cable were actually just a hole that could be used to permanently hold the cable and make it into a dock, like http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:52559http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
