I can't modify it right now, so do it yourself! - EDIT: I've got Makerbot desktop now, so I can do this.
For a Samsung Galaxy S4 in Rubber Jacket
ALTERNATIVE VERSIONS WITH LOWER GRIP & RABBIT EARS:
This is a quick one I threw together to get printed so I could use my Phone as a Sat Nav whilst here in America.
I was fortunate enough that I had my Engineering Knowledge and access to a Makerbot 2. The MB2 is pretty good, and this is the first time I've printed in PLA. It looks great.
OK, so I do have data, but since I've got a (former) flagship Android Phone I use an app called Navigator free. It uses Offline Maps AND ROUTING - courtesy of Open Street Map. Whilst the roaming data costs me nothing, I find it reassuring that if I were to lose my signal, I can still find where I'm goin g.
So the VW hire car I'm in has this dumb central display screen. Between the Airport and the Hotel I just rested my phone in front of it. That worked well. However one time I turned Right, Phone slid off to the right, hit the Radio "Vol Up" and turned the radio up to 11...
I've modelled this to fit a Samsung Galaxy S4 with a rubberised case on it. It clips bently on the side (unfortunately exactly where the Vol and On buttons are).
It then lodges between the two round dial cowellling, and whilst the phone CAN move, it's unlikely to slide off, fall on the floor and put Spinal Tap on too loud.
