Summary

Nice holder to keep you IPHONE or IPOD of the ground while charging. Large print, can only be made on Mendel right now. But I bet somebody will chop it up for there makerbot to print. Also a folding charger would be cool. Possibly some M3 screws and nuts, or just 3mm filament?

Inspired when I saw this for sale at Bed bath and beyond over the holidays

I printed one up on my makerbot. Used a heat gun to make the fold, no problem. But I tried my samsung plug, and an iphone plug, and neither one fit through the hole...only off by a couple mm in both width and height. Any way to adjust that?

An easy way is to scale up the model by 1-5% then the plug will fit

I think it might also be possible to use your HBP to heat up the bend mark

Have someone the possibilitiy to fit it for the "samsung galaxy s" mobile?

Why bend? I guess it would print perfectly fine as a right angle.

You could also safe material and time by making the flat bed a kind of grid instead of a solid surface.

I choose to add the bend to have a proof of concept. Also as you know parts are stronger in the XY than the XZ. I'm going to add a new design soon with less plastic.

do you fold it once printed? how does it keep from dropping the phone? (is this two prints?)

You can use a lighter or heat gun to just heat up the bend mark. I have found heating up a metal rod (M6 or M4) with a lighter also works well.

oh, great idea!

Great idea - seems the platform could contain some cutouts which would make it print faster yet still offer a stable surface to hold the device.

Some design suggestions:

1) Indeed make foldable;

2) Add support to place phone upright, incorporating;

3) Holder for phone side plug in bottom of plate.

Yeah, but I saw on Slashdot the other day that some 8 year old kid just got the patent on this, but integrated into the faceplate... not sure how patent law works, is this close enough to get you into trouble?

No you cannot get in trouble for this. There are a lot of different phone holder things like this online.

Read this post about copy rights, very interesting
