Similar to a few other iPhone tripod mount options, my version features a hexagonal hole in the bottom, where an 11mm 20 TPI nut can be wedged/glued. The fit is pretty snug, so you may have to file it slightly to get the bolt to fit easily.
The mount also has a cutout on the bottom to use it as a viewing stand.
The design was primarily made with printability in mind, as I had some issues printing tripod mounts with a gorillapod-stye mount.


Sliced in Slic3r. 0.2 mm layer height, 15% infill, no support. Printed in PLA on Printrbot Simple Metal.

Works great - the nut fit right in - using it with a gorilla mount. Just what I was looking for - nice work.

I just printed this and it came out beautifully. Buuuuut.... It doesn't fit an iPhone 5 at all. The slot is way to skinny. I can't find my calipers but the scale looks to be 6.6mm printed, the iphone 5 is 7.6mm deep.
Anyone know a good scaling to make it fit? Or and I getting out my dremel?

Sorry it didn't work out, what are you slicing with? Using slic3r, the dimensions should be 91.99 x 22 x 26. In the modeling software, the slot is 7.6 mm like you said. And I don't think it's an issue with the .STL, I printed the most recent version before I posted it. Maybe try scaling it to get those dimensions.

Figured it out. I have been using RepG slicer but decided to jump to Slic3r. RepG had pretty accurate dimensional prints but Slic3r is printing about 93%-95% undersized (measured with 20mm calibration cube prints).
What setting do I need to tweak in Slic3r to fix this?
FYI printing to FlashForge with GPX converter

In Slic3r on the plater section, you'd just click on "scale" (top right), and try 105-107% scale since you said its printing 93-95% actual size. There may be a better way to fix the scaling correctly, but that's the only way I've done it.

I'll go check again, maybe something I did because I did open the STL in slic3r.

Just checked and slicer says the size is what you posted, still prints out too small. Still not super familiar with slic3r but all the dimensions are undersized from the physical print. I'll see if I can't figure out what I did

That or I messed something up (possible).
