Articulating, Wall-Mounted, Magnetic Phone Mount

**Update (6/23/2018): I'm sharing this Fusion 360 model(I hope I did it right): https://a360.co/2KgA3Z9

I'm sorry to anyone who has tried to contact me. I've been busy with a full-time job plus engineering classes. Every time I log in, I see that I have infinity notifications waiting for me to address them.

But, I finally took the time to figure out how to share the model so you can make changes or fix the model in any way you want.

I'm glad so many people have gotten use out of my design.

**Update (7/24/2017): Important notes in the print settings.

I've been debating mounting a TV on the ceiling above my bed. The only reason I haven't done it is because of a fear of being crushed by a falling TV while I'm sleeping.

This design allows me to watch Youtube, Netflix, or other streaming video while I'm falling asleep.

Non-Printed Parts:
Adhesive Metal Plate for Magnetic Phone Mounts
4-Pack Enkay 4480-C Magnets
4x Screws that fit in a 5 mm hole with a head diameter no larger than 7.9 mm
4x Wall Anchors for those screws
Electrical Tape

If I had to guess on the screw size based on the charts I found online, I would say it's a #10 screw, but I designed the wall mount around some unlabeled screws and anchors I had lying around.

Notes:

Highly Recommended Settings: Keep parts oriented as I've set them. Some parts will require support. The reasoning is that, when printed on my printer at 20%, there was a consistent weak spot at the base of the threading. If you want to print without supports, you can reorient those parts in your slicer and print at a higher infill, maybe 50%.

Infill: 20%
Wall Width: 1.2 mm
Top Thickness: 1.2 mm

Also, for parts that have to fit together, I highly recommend using one printer to print all the parts. I have found that one of my printers prints marginally larger (0.1-0.2 mm/20 mm), and on larger pieces, the tolerances will be off enough that the pieces will not fit right.

Post-Printing
Magnets

The bottom layers on both of my printers tend to screw with the tolerances. I had to scrape the rims of the holes for the magnets before they would pop in, essentially widening the diameters for the first couple of layers.

Magnetic Mount Cap

The electrical tape provides a higher-friction surface than the plastic provides. Place a few strips across the surface of the cap that the phone will sit on, and this helps to prevent the phone from sliding.

Make sure the cap is screwed down firmly to minimize the distance from the adhesive metal plate on the back of your phone and the magnets.

Headphone stand (setup themed)

Created this Headphone stand with colour customisation in mind to suit a variety of different desk setups. It incorporates a cable hook to keep things tidy when storing the headphones and a modular design to aid in repairs should it break. The design is very strong and is more than capable of supporting heavy cans. The headphone post has a smooth curve with no sharp points to prevent damage/ deformation occurring to head bands.The triangulated structure aids with lowering print times, whilst maintaining strength and provides a nice aesthetic IMO. In my Test version I used m3 anodised countersunk washers however these are optional, just thought they complimented the look of the stand. Please see Misc notes to help aid with this project.

If you'd like, you can follow my Instagram: noyceprints for new and yet to be released designs that aren't available here. If you're after a controller stand in a similar style you can find it on cgtrader by searching noyceprints.

Requires 16 M3x10mm screws for the main frame and 3 M3x10mm screws for the feet.

EDIT:
Added a file: Side V2 XL, should allow for an extra 2 - 3 cm in height for those of you with very large cans. Please note that this is an early file as I haven't had time to test it. Would appreciate any feedback on the new larger sides from those that decide to print it. :) 5th picture along shows a comparison between stock and the V2 XL sides.

Added an optional brace for wireless headphone users that removes the cable hook from the rear. File name: Optional brace.

Adjustable Watch Stand

Made an adjustable holder for my watches, so that I can compensate small differences in diameter of the strap.

It is designed with small teeth, so you can adjust it after you put your watch on it. That makes it easier to find the correct dimension. If it doesn't fit your watches, just scale the whole thing up or down ;-)

The design is a remix of thing:3053563.


Update 15.11.2018

I designed a small modular platform, so that you can arrange your watches on your cupboard evenly. It is shaped like a puzzle piece, so you can add more watches whenever you want.
The existing watch stand does not need to be glued into the platform, just put it in.

Minimalist Wallet

Minimalist wallet designed to be small enough to easily be carried as a front pocket wallet.

The wallet can be assembled and used in a few different ways. It can be assembled using either one or two sides. When two sides are used the cards are placed in between the two sides and will be protected from wear and tear. Each side is assembled from two separate pieces screwed together with eight M3 screws. The screws should be fairly short so they do most likely need to be shortened to be short enough to not stick out the other end.

There are two versions of the wallet sides, one for countersunk screws and one version for normal screws. The parts meant to be used with countersunk screws are named with countersunk in the filenames and the other parts are named with regular in the filenames. The countersunk screw version will have a slimmer profile and is recommended.

If one side is used it can be assembled with one or two elastic bands. Where both elastic bands are used to hold cards or money.

If two sides are used it can be assembled with one, two, or three elastic bands. One of the elastic bands is used to hold the two sides together. While the other one or two elastic bands are used to keep money or extra cards.

The elastic bands are cut to length and sewn together to form a loop. The length of the bands depend on how many cards that will be carried in the wallet.

All parts are oriented to be printed so that when assembled the sides facing the build plate are facing outwards and the top of the print is non visible.

The screws can be inserted and taken out at least a few times before the threads start to have trouble getting a grip. When that happens the piece can easily be replaced.

If two sides are used I would recommend slightly sanding the edges facing the cards to make it easier to insert the cards. I may update the files to include a rounded side but I decided to leave them sharp for now since I prefered that when using it as a one sided wallet.

Required materials

  • M3 screws, 4mm long.
  • Elastic band, 20mm wide.

Pi Zero - Gameboy NANO

This is my newest Raspberry Pi portable.
Built around the Raspberry Pi Zero it measures just 6.9cm x 4.8cm x 2.7cm making it the smallest portable Raspberry pi I've ever seen, perhaps the smallest ever created!

It runs Retropie Emulationstation, which provides a wide variety of emulators from the first Atari all the way to the GBA, N64 and even Dreamcast.

It also features a 1.5" OLED from Adafruit, which is running using FBCP and a custom configuration I wrote for it. If the built in screen seems too small, or if you want to play a multi player game you can always connect it to a full sized tv through HDMI.

Unfortunately it does not have any speakers built in, since the Raspberry pi Zero does not feature any analog sound output. You do however get sound, when it's plugged into the tv.

The built in controller is connected through the GPIO, and configured using the Adafruit Retrogame script.

If you want one of these yourself you can of course attempt to build one using the files on this Thingiverse page, or you can buy one from me ([email protected])

Apple Watch Charging Dock - Classic Mac

[updated February 5, 2016: should be easier to print. Removed the feet from the insert, thickened the bezel and other sections. Removed some overhangs. Opened up the slot at the top.]

This is a two-part charging dock for the Apple Watch.

Part 1 (stand) holds the wireless charging puck in place. Part 2 (shell) slides on top, and provides a place to set your Apple Watch. Slots in the sides of the shell hold the watch steady by its band, while the magnetic charger keeps it in place to charge. The screen lines up with the Mac's screen, so you can see the display while the watch is in Night Stand mode.
