I wanted to use thing:719230 for my smartphone – and had the idea to combine it with the universal tripod mount (thing:46378), which I printed a while ago.
The first try, with the mount right in the middle, showed that even an iPhone5 is a bit to big for the rig.
So I changed my design an moved the mount to the front, constructing a foot, making the rig selfstanding again. Now the gap between the phone and the handle is a bit wider. It would be a good idea to extend the top and bottom bar a bit more – on my CTC annother 1.5 cm would be possible.
The biggest advantage – besides the good grip – of such a rig is the possibility to mount accessory, as an extra light or an external microphone. Therefor I added an quarter inch thread to the top.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
