Any Phone Car Dock by azzeloof Feb 9, 2013

Description

A Velcro car dock for use with any phone. The mount is attached to your dashboard via Velcro, and the phone is attached to the mount via Velcro on the case or phone back. This lets you use the mount with any phone, regardless of its size. The Velcro also allows you to adjust the mount once it is installed (though there are also screw holes, so you can attach it permanently if you wish).

This design is heavily based off of (read: the CAD files are identical) Brandon W6's design (see project ancestry).

And, or course, don't operate your phone while driving, and I'm not responsible if you do and you (or somebody else) get(s) hurt as a result.

it would be nice if it swiveled 360 degrees . up, down, left , right, clockwise... need a ball socket maybe. this is a nice design for it.

Whenever I slice the base with screws or the wide base, instead of the tube shape that goes up to where the screws go in, its just a solid block of extrusion. On the wide base I get about a 2 inch tall rectangular block with a tab sticking out of the top. What slicer are you using?

This is great! I used velcro, but I feel like the phone feels a little flimsy. I just re-printed it today and am going to superglue a phone dock directly to the upper bracket. And instead of using velcro to attach the base to the dashboard, I think I'll just use 3M double sided adhesive. It's the same sticky material that goes on the back side of the velcro, but without the velcro.

Thank you!

Instructions

  1. Print the Files -I printed them with 3 shells @ 25% infill on a MakerBot Replicator 2. Choose between the two bases (wide foot flange and screw flange).

  2. Assemble the mount. -I used 8x32 screws with wingnuts. Two of each is all you need.

  3. Apply Velcro to the mount and phone case. -I used black adhesive Velcro. I recommend putting the rough side on your phone case so that it won't get clogged up with dirt as easily as the soft side.

  4. Install in your car. -Attach the other side of the Velcro to the dash and you're ready to go!
