The customizer seems to generate an iPhone build that omits the first layers for the ends. Results in a minor disaster.

Great Job!!

Great idea! I'll look in to it.

Have you considered making ones that would use linear bearings?

nothingfuture on Apr 30, 2013 said:

I suspect if you want the slider to perform even better, running an app like Luma *while doing the slide* would give some very buttery footage.

ibudmen on May 2, 2013 said:

Never heard of Luma until you mentioned it, tried it out and really like it --Thank you for the recommendation

miladhamiri on Apr 27, 2013 said:

Why not making it moving in a circle and 360 degree? (maybe an small motor can be added for stable and soft motion)

apk on Apr 27, 2013 said:

could u make an iphone 4/4s carriage model? that would be great!

ibudmen on May 2, 2013 said:

I have some updates coming in the next couple days

That video has a little jitter. Have you tried adding a little graphite lubricant? I've had success with this stuff: http://amzn.com/B002S1RTZI/?ta...

ColinBB on Apr 26, 2013 said:

I'd like to see this motorized and controlled. Think Replicator X Gantry. This is a great start for that!

Genius and smooth! Andrew (3dhacker.com)

Daid on Apr 26, 2013 said:

Fully* printable!

*) Except for the rods

ibudmen on Apr 26, 2013 said:

You are right, not fully printable because of the rods

goaran on Apr 26, 2013 said:

same problem for me. I cant watche the video. The easiest way to avoid censorship is germany is to use a chinese proxy server....

Vegter on Apr 25, 2013 said:

The video is not watchable in Germany, because of music rights... An all too well known problem in Germany. Any chance you could upload the video without music?

Pretty cool! Specially the design for slide the platform
This design needs to be built for the customizer

TeamTeamUSA on Apr 25, 2013 said:

Nice!

To improve sliding, you can use LME8UU linear bearings like this thing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Looks awesome! Now to place an order with McMaster...

sergeantdutch on Apr 25, 2013 said:

Very nice! Definitely adding this to my to do list.

MasterBor on Apr 25, 2013 said:

Try to put the phone on a little toy car :)

LootKit on Apr 16, 2013 said:

This is great! Any chance you could make seperate STL files for the individual pieces?

ibudmen on Apr 16, 2013 said:

Done and done!

jmoney on Apr 15, 2013 said:

Nice work, would be cool to see a sample of a video you produced with slide. If you put in a youtube link it will populate the carousel...

ibudmen on Apr 15, 2013 said:

Just added it!
