3D model description

This is the iPad version of my Foldable Camera Tripod Accessories (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4230858).
I designed this for my TikTok Kids in this time of #COVID19 .

It can be attached to a standard tripod or my Foldable Camera Tripod Remix (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4213462). If you choose the printed one with the 100mm legs I highly recommend you print the 100m 40 degrees legs supplied.

It fits the currents iPad both portrait and landscape mode and iPad Mini in portrait mode. I made it for a 12mm thick iPad with its protective case. If you don't have a protective case, I highly recommend you to put some high-friction pad like this one : https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/tools/workshop/workbenches/benchtop-accessories/101914-high-friction-sheets. There is nothing preventing the iPad to slide out of the support from side to side!

Parts required

one ¼-20 x 1½" hex bolt (can be substituted)
one ¼-20 nut
one ¼-20 Hex Coupling Nut, Fully Threaded
one M4x25 screw
one M4 nut

The hex bolt can be substituted with a ¼-20 x 2" bolt and a ¼-20 nylon lock nut. See picture.

Printing
All the parts should be printed the way they are oriented.

Base: Support everywhere but a support blocker must be added. You don't need (and want) any support inside!
In Cura, with the part placed at (0,0,0), add a 10x144x35 blocker at (-6, -18.4, 0). This should block the inside only and leave the oval hole supported.

Arms, Swivel Base & Thumb Nuts: support everywhere

Assembly
The folding arms are held in place by a glued button. Fill the small holes with glue but do not overfill. The glue will squeeze out just enough to glue the button without gluing the arm.

The M4-25 should be screwed in place with a drill. Slow down at the end to not strip the plastic. Some glue can be added under the head but the heat from the friction is enough to keep it in place. The thumb nut doesn't need to be tightened to keep the sliding arm in place.
