This is a tripod mount that will fit most smartphone sizes. The particularity of this model, apart from its aesthetic appearance, is the mechanical properties of its helical body keeping the top clamp in its axis and leveled according to the adjustment wheel.


To put this tripod mount together you will need in addition:

  • one M6x60 hex screw
  • one M6 hex nut
  • one 1/4-20 nut
  • some piece of cork or foam
  • a super glue to keep the nuts secured in place and to attach the cork or foam

FDM printing recommendations:

For better resistance strength, you should print the helical body standing on the printing bed with support material. However since this piece does not hold the phone, I prefer to print it lying on the printing bed for convenience and smoother result.

Hi. I think there is a mistake in description. I had to use M7 nuts and screw, not M8. The central hole has 7'22 mm diameter.
For the rest, it is a amazing design.


Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I apologise for misleading you and maybe other people out there. I checked my nuts and indeed from my measurements it appears that I've even used M6 bolts of length of 60 mm. I hope that your print turned out well despite my bad advise.
