is there enough room to plug the phone up to charge if it is resting in portrait mode? I am looking for a stand/charging dock for a galaxy note 1 and versatility is definitely a plus! Also, as this will be my first 3D printing project, I need something easy to work with. I'm thinking maybe just make the legs a little "fatter" so the droid is higher up on the table? But I have no clue how to do it lol

You could put it up on a block and make a hole for the charging cable, but you're probably better just using it in landscape mode when you're charging.
The simplest way to put it on a block would be to change the SCAD file, add a cube under it and then remove another cube for the cable and maybe add a slot along the bottom for the cable to go behind.

thanks! this might be my second project though lol... playing with a SCAD file sounds like more work than I have time for at the moment... especially since I have no clue what "SCAD" is.... how in the world did I get so behind the times?!? What software/websites do you recommend for this? I've played around with tinkercad, love it so far. Unfortunately, my Mac is too old for SketchUp2013. :-/

I changed the model for you and uploaded it and the SCAD file. If you want to learn OpenSCAD, look for if in Google, it's open source and there are lots of resources on-line telling you how to use it. I have to say that TinkerCAD is much more accessible and you may want to stick with it. You could try importing the Droid model into TinkerCAD and modifying it to suit your needs, this may be much easier. Good luck...

I use this a lot as a stand for my phone. I printed one on my Up! 3D printer, I painted it metallic green with my airbrush and then I coated it with clear varnish. Pictures of it are here (also of some other painted models):


Looks good, you have some interesting printers there.

Better than the QT coffee cup that I cut into a phone rest. Will be printing soon.

Really nice!

It would be even better if the head was removable and if the body was hollow as a storage space for whatever.

This would then reduce the height of the body making it easier for someone to print.
If I had my heat bed installed I wouldn't have been able to print this as it used the absolute last mi
llimeter of space I had in the Z direction.

To print a taller object I will need to move the circuit board holder further away from the 8mm studding so the extruder has room to come up another 20 mm.

Great job as it is...

I may give it a try to turn it into a hollow body with a removable head as
two objects...

Interesting, I had assumed that most people had larger build platforms than the ToM (which is what I have) I normally try to fit things in 100x100x100mm.

The removable head
amp; hollow body would be straight forward enough, the trouble would come with the connection between the two and the tollerances around that.

I may play with it, let me know how you get on if you decide to give it a go.

Oh, and thanks for the feedback :)

But your Android Device Rest has a height of 115.98 mm which is way more than 100 mm!

If you scale it down vertically, would it then not fit? And it looks a little stretched out vertically, if you ask me..

There is a new stl here that confines the little guy into a 100x100x100mm box, hope that helps :)

Ah! got me there... ;)

Love the idea. I was thinking of making one that held up my Droid 2 with the charger cable in its hand but I kinda like this better. Nice work.

Can you please proivide STL?

I'd like to print this and I don't want to learn openscad in the few hours I have to print today.

PS: What other formats can OpenSCAD export besides STL?

Step? Sat? Iges? Solidworks? Inventor? ProE? Catia? Parasolid? SolidEdge?

The STL is there now, OpenSCAD can output STL, OFF and DXF.

It only takes a minute or two to learn, you should try it :)

Maybe I'll have a look.

I already have a professional cad-system that I purchased and not really a need for another.

Especially since it does not output any of the major file-formats. (I would be locked in with

my designs.)

I'll have access to my own printer next weekend and hope to have the opportunity
to print one of these for my workplace. :) (I'm doing heavy Android development.)

This is really cool! I'll have to think of what mascot there is for my Samsung Focus.
