My wife and mother-in-law got a little tired of always taking their cases off to use their tripod mount; now you can use nearly ANY phone (even phablets!) in nearly ANY case on your tripod without a specific mount case.
This thing will securely hold your phone, no matter your case thickness, on top of a tripod or monopod. All top and bottom ports are accessible, as well as the screen.
Design goals - To securely fit as many types of phones using as many types of cases as possible, while keeping microphones, screen, and ports open.
Thanks to cswaim to his UPTM; I was inspired by his clamping method, and thought it could be made a little more universal and secure with a wider clamping surface and tightening nuts.
Should print in 3.5-4 hrs on standard settings without support. Optimized for PLA.
2x 4" 1/4"/20 hex head bolts
1x 1/4"/20 Nut
2x 1/4"/20 Wingnuts
Felt or rubber padding.
Print both top and bottom. Place nut in bottom center hex indentation, glue in place with hotglue at the TOP of the nut.
Thread your bolts through the bottom holes, place a dab of hotglue on bottom of the hexhead face, press into place.
Cut some felt or rubber self-adhesive pads and place them on the outsides of the phone mount angles. See picture.
Mount onto your favorite tripod, monopod, or gorillapod.
