A stand for your iPad. Works in portrait and landscape modes and with Smart Cover on or off.


I printed this with 0.8mm walls and 20% infill.

This is the second iteration of my Cool Wave iPad Stand. I took the first iteration down because I had trouble slicing it in Cura. This iteration is greatly improved:

1) Uses less plastic.
2) Slices nicely. Has no non-manifold geometry - at least none that I can find.
3) Is designed to be flexible, so if the print warps (and a print this size probably will), it will bend back into shape when the iPad is placed on it.

Warping was a big problem with version 1 - it had a solid base, and on my Ultimaker in PLA, with an unheated platform, it warped very slightly, but just enough to make it unstable.

The "cool wave" in question is:

(Cos[x ] + 1)/(x^2/60 + 1) for x, -7/Pi, 7 /Pi

I plotted this in curve in Mathematica and exported it to DXF. The rest of the work was done in Bonzai3D.

It works with iPad 2 upwards. The width of the slot along the base is 12mm. Provided your tablet is no thicker than this, then it should work. If it is thicker, then you can always scale it up when you print it.

Looks VERY COOL from the back - with ipad on there! :D
Which versions of the Ipad would this suit? If it's for the newer versions (i.e. 4) then it should also suit the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 :)
