iPhone 5 Car Mount Panel. Uses M3 bolts to mount with. The spacing for the bolts was based off an existing Griffin Universal Phone mount similar to this one: http://store.griffintechnology.com/smartphone/windowseat-3-handsfree-car-mount-for-iphone

This is only the panel part. I plan to design a separate printed part to replace the existing Griffin part (while maintaining the same bolt spacing). I also plan to make a mount that clips into the dash's defrost vents, however this will be very car specific, but I'll add it anyway.


I recommend buying some thin, stick on felt to apply to over the bolts to prevent scratching in case the M3 bolts are a tad longer.

  • Added OpenSCAD files, requires Libs.scad from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6021. Relicensed this as GPL to comply.

  • Made the side panels thinner, added 0.5mm additional body space so the phone can be more easily removed.

I should make a note this particular STL has a few millis of spacing for a typical plastic/rubber case.  I'll be posting the OpenSCAD code shortly that includes customizations.
