Version 2 is finally done! check it out: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1026219
its better then this one in pretty much every way!
This is a fixture that will hold your tablet underneath your cabinet. What is special about this is that when you are done using you tablet then you can fold up the fixture and store it out of sight underneath the bottom lip of your cabinet. It will fit any tablet under 11 wide x 7.5 tall x.43 thick. The whole assembly is only one inch in width (25.4mm). This would be perfect for any kitchen that dosent have lots of space to spare. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuMwBeWOG1A&feature=youtu.be

Thanks very helpful. Do you think about a version for iPad pro

I would suggest that you make version 2 of this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1026219 if you scale all the peices up by 1.22 it should fit the IPad pro

Low Profile tablet holder V2.0

When is Version 2 coming out?

Hopefully soon. I have been working on a bunch of other projects recently and haven't had time. I have the whole thing modeled but I still need to print it out and test it. Probably a week or so.

Version 2 is done read the description in this part.


No problem :) hope you like it!

Excellent design, very intuitive. Thumbs up.

Thanks! Version 2 should be out in a couple weeks

I'll wait for the upgraded version :D! it looks awesome

Some of the parts need to be glued together. Each part has how many times it needs to be printed in its name. Ill try to get some more detailed instructions up soon.

Could you please add some short instructions? I would like to print it but still have some problems understanding the design:

  • How many pieces of each of the parts do I need to print? It is hard to differentiate the long and short bar on the drawing.
  • How is it assembled? Do you just click it together or do I glue some of the parts or use screws?

I made one of these, only thing I would suggest is that if you have a bigger bed then try to print the long and short pars as whole pieces, my prints didnt click together well without some effort and creative sanding. Your print may be different though. Also, be careful of the pins, they can break fairly easily if you apply too much force.

Another thing is that if you were to mirror the screw holes onto either side brackets you might be able to forgo the bars all together, and maybe a couple single piece pins to replace the small pins and holes holding the moving arms that raise and lower the whole piece to conceal it.

Thanks for the feedback! I agree that the long bars should be printed as one piece but not too many printers have a print bed that is large enough to do that. Also I created this thing for the counter top challenge and they had a limit for part sizes to stay within a 6" X 10" print area. I only had 2 weeks to design, prototype, print and submit the whole thing so there is parts of it that could have been designed better but I just did not have the time. I am slowly working on a version 2 with some really cool upgrades. I do not know when I will have the time to finish it but I will post a link in the description of this part when I am finished. Other then that how do you like it?

Looking forward to your improved design! I still think this one is a wonderful idea, hence my printing it ;) It is working well in my kitchen right now. Its usability is what had inspired me to make the suggestions I had. When you post your updated one I will be printing that out as well and giving it a go.

All the parts are already oriented the way that they should be printed. You should probably print the outside bracket and the clips at 100% fill for strength. Other then that it should be pretty straightforward.

Any tricks to get this to print nicely?

I thought about putting a clip in there but after building it I discovered that you really don't need one, it stays put pretty good. I guess if you want to make sure that it will stay then you could put a thin non slip pad or something but really you don't need one. And no sorry the angle is non adjustable.

One more thing - does it have different tilt levels when extended?

Love it. Could you add a clip to hold the tablet in place when the holder is folded away?

Quite a nice design. Looks pretty solid...

Unfortunately i can't screw this in my kitchen because it's not really my kitchen :)

But i'll collect it for future kitchens
