3D model description

This is a great design that I've dialed in and got working very well. Looks great and is very functional. This stand allows multiple viewing angles and best of all has a quick grab/release mechanism that grabs and locks the phone in when you let go and releases when you pick up the phone.

This design currently works best for larger phones (iPhone 8 plus/XS Max size), but I am working on a universal version, just need to get my hands on the smaller devises to test and dial it in.

The entire design is printable other than a small extension spring that needs to be installed when putting the stand together.

5mm x 10mm extension springs work great and can be found in this kit for a great price:

très beau design

Hey, great design!....I noticed someone took your design, modded it and is selling it....LOW!!!.
I did edit your design a bit to hold a phone with an Otter-box style case on it.
Anyways, good job!

Very frustrating experience.great mechanical design, looks great, assembles terrible. extremely small tolerances. Buildt one but never ever again ;) Thanks anyway.

Muy chulo!! Nice!
Lo he impreso en mi Ender 3. La tornillería la imprimí a 0.1mm y el resto a 0.2

La única observación que puedo hacer es que creo que los agarradores deberían ser un poco mas anchos ya que la mayoría de los móviles hoy en día utilizan funda y entonces se no llega a agarrar bien.

Gracias :D

Very good project but it remains to be reviewed we had to redo the same parts several times, because the screws and nuts were tightened to fit in the other parts ...

Amazing design. I love it!.
Thanks for share

hello everyone,
care to choose the right spring. Mine was too strong so the side don't touch my phone.
Othewise even if it's difficult to build, it's as really cool object

Will it fit an iPhone 6 Plus?

Thanks a bunch man!
I edited your design a bit to make it fit a note 9 with a chunky steel case and to make it screw onto the suction cup and telescopic arm of my previous mount.
Works a charm :D

Thank but not compatible with Huawei Mate 20 pro ,too bad because system fun!

It looks great, but do you have a plan to mount it?

как скачать?

a small blueprint to assemble it could be good.
I find some parts a bit confusing and too short to be assembled properly


zip file is empty :)

Will not download.

Why not replacing the small extension spring with a rubber band?

Curious what the deminsions are for phone placement? My Note 9 is 162mm. I know the plus 8 is 158.4mm. Looking at the gif. It looks like it might work but wanted to confirm.
