Camera Phone Stand by blincoln Mar 24, 2013

Description

Adjustable camera / smart phone stand - fits all phones up to a thickness of 10 mm including iPhone 4-5, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note. The stand ball joint allows for adjustable tilt and (some) roll.

Excellent for time lapse photography, stop motion movies, web cam setups (perhaps for monitoring your 3D printer?)

This is my first model which is "not entirely useless" (quote from a PhD dissertation I witnessed). Yay!

When you print the bottom without supports, do you have it standing up the way it is in the file? Seems like it would just topple over.

I am very much trying to figure this out now.

I printed this out as a Christmas gift for my son, and amazingly everyone really loved it, so now I have to print more, my question is how do you orient the bottom holder to print without support?

Instructions

Print in fine resolution. On my Replicator 2 the 0.1 mm gap between ball joint outer and inner parts provide quite a lot of friction, which is necessary to keep the camera fixed in all positions.

Assembly is limited to sliding the two holder parts together and twisting the stand base in place.

To prevent the phone to slide sideways in the holder, you can add a strip of rubber or similar on the lower holder. I have used decor rubber, but bicycle hose, silicon pads, etc should work fine.

I have also placed silicon pads on the bottom of the stand to prevent it from sliding on the surface it stands on.

Great design! And amazing that it prints without support (just confirmed on Replicator 2X). Sadly it doesn't support the weight of my Note 2 unless it's in center position (at 10% fill-in). I might merge the bottom two pieces into one, removing the pan/tilt but increasing stability for heavier phones.

When I try to download the files, all I get is screen full of numbers and symbols. Something is wrong

Maybe a temporary error? It works fine for me now.

Were you able to print this without support? I'm specifically curious if the lower holder part printed without support.

blincoln on Mar 24, 2013 said:

Yes, it prints very well without support, amazingly enough. Acetone for degreasing the build plate does wonders for sticktion.

I first intended to design it with the lower holder part printed flat on the bed but this would have create a lot of other restrictions so I was very happy that this current design worked out.
