A simple S3 cradle with inter-changeable bottom parts, two for desktop use, another for attaching to a standard camera tripod.

I've used the camera attachment a few times when I've run 'Lapse It' - a cool time lapse for Android.

I've included a photo of my S3 on my small camera tripod, but it fits great on full sized tripods too.

[UPDATE] I've design a new pyramid style base as the tripod seemed a little unstable at times. The new base has a lower centre of gravity and is much more stable.


I printed this at 0.2mm on an Up Plus! printer. The tolerances for the slide section to connect the parts is pretty close so you may need to file a little plastic off to get a nice fit.

I needed to add a support structure to print the new pyramid base, but that might just be my Up! printer, it looks like the Replicator 2 is much better at printing without adding support.

did you print with or without support?

Both the bases can be printed without supports, but the cradle needs support as it has overhang sections.
