Adjustable iPhone Stand by bobamason Apr 8, 2013

Description

The stand holds an iPhone or similarly sized phone. The angle is adjustable from about 30deg to 60deg.

I designed and printed it for a friend but never got a picture of it. I did notice problem after i printed it, *due to the location of the pivot point, the weight of the phone pulls the phone forward when adjusted to angles standing straighter up than about 60deg*.

Why do the pieces that hold the phone have so much clearance for the screws that hold it together? The clearance hole is nearly .25" and the bolts holding it together are .11"
Seems to be US #4-40 size which is closer to M3. M3 x 12mm should work. I'm assuming the raft is the support ring on the spacers which allows them to print with a mushroom shape. I was able to print both on one 6" bed by splitting and rearranging slightly.
4x½ mm or inch screws? One seems too small and the other too big?

Instructions

Print **Both** of the STL files and remove the raft.

The small spacers may need to be cleaned up with a file or sandpaper so that the joints move easily.

Assemble the stand using **four 4x1/2 phillips** metal screws:
- insert the spacers into the holes on the side parts that hold the phone.
- attach the *base* and *the stop that adjusts the angle* to the *sides* using the screws through the spacers.
