Could it be the first ever? A single print, 3-in1 Smartphone Mount? It's a camera, remote viewing monitor, video screen, head lamp and much more, all in one!

Here's an intensely amateurish vid of all three mounting methods:


Three sizes for four iPhones;

CrocEye55.stl - iPhone 4 and 5 (58.6mm width)
CrocEye63.stl - iPhone 6 (67mm width)
CrocEye74.stl - iPhone 6plus/Nexus 6p (77.8mm width)
CrocEye57_Tripod.stl - iphone 4 and 5 w/o Sleeve
CrocEye63_Tripod.stl - iphone 4 and 5 w/ Sleeve
CrocEye65_Tripod.stl - iphone 6 and 7 w/o Sleeve
CrocEye67_Tripod.stl - iPhone 6 and 7 w/Sleeve (tighter fit)
CrocEye69_Tripod.stl - iphone6 and 7 w/ Sleeve
CrocEye77_Tripod.stl - iphone 6+ and 7+ w/Sleeve
CrocEye79_Tripod.stl - iphone 6+ and 7+ w/Sleeve (looser fit)
CrocEye83_Tripod.stl - Samsung Note4 w/Sleeve

The size of the nylon strap used in the video was 25mm width.

The size of the nut used for all three models is 1/4" x 20tpi (standard size for most tripod mounting screws)

Face it, your life just got 20x better! You're welcome! :D

If you found this useful, please make sure you share a picture (it makes my day each time someone prints something I designed) and be sure to peruse my other submissions which are almost as varied as they are many:



March 28th, 2016 update: Added a camera-mount base to the 63mm version for my iPhone 5s that always has a sleeve on. Let me know if the others need one too. :)

December 21st, 2016 update: Added another two sizes: 77mm and 83mm for iPhone6s and Samsung Note4 (with sleeves)

February 13rd, 2018 update: Added two more sizes: 57mm tripod size for iPhone4 and iPhone5 without a sleeve and 65mm tripod size for iPhone6 w/sleeve

February 14th, 2018 update: Happy Valentines day - the 69mm version is for iPhone6 and 7 with sleeves. Enjoy it on many levels. :3

Works great (iph6). Accidentally had supports turned on, and getting the 1/4 20 hole cleared out took ~20 minutes. If you're daring you might try it without supports..

I've printed a few times without supports and it came out just fine each time. The biggest problem encountered on the 'nut style' ones is that they're so fragile. I've since moved over to the ones with the wedge... bulkier but simpler. :)

I own a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact phone with a sleeve. The total width is slightly less than 68mm.
Do you think the iPhone 6 version (67mm width) should fit as the design seems to allow some flexibility?

Yes, it'd be fine!

This fit my wife's Nexus 6P very nicely! Used CrocEye74.stl

Thanks for sharing - I've updated the post :)

Actually, I think the size of the nut is 1/4" x 20 tpi, not 20 mm as you indicated in the details.

Thanks! I'll update the details!
