(WORK IN PROGRESS!)
A friend asked me to design a phone grip that he could put magnets into the base of and use on Gymnasium equipment.
Note: This is designed to use a silicone or other grippy spongy material as an insert. i would not trust it to hold your phone without at least Hockey tape or something on the inside.

Want to take video / photos of yourself getting JACKED?! Yay!
Want to read pinterest while pumping Iron? YAY!
But yes, main goals for this are:
- hook to bottom of phone, use as a table stand
- magnet to the Side of gym equipment, hold phone vertically
- magnet to bottom of an Upper bar on gym equipment, hold phone horizontally
- magnet to the Front of something, hold phone horizontally
The first design is going to be for a Samsung ALPHA (Dimension: 65.5 mm (2.58 in) W )
Add holes for magnets in the base (test model, so it fits his phone before I %*($ around with holes...)
V2 - wider hole for phone
slightly thinner band, hopefully more flex
smaller Nubs to grab phone
better rounded back corner
print it. I'd recommend 40% or higher infill, so that you can throw it into your gym bag and not break it. strong materials help (Im testing with ABS)
(future) add magnets
add Grip to the cup
Magnet to something
