I just launched another YouTube video. This time I show you how I 3D printed a tripod holder for my iPhone 5. I found the design on Thingiverse and then modified it in TinkerCad.
The original design had equal height sides that the iPhone sat between. But that resulted in one side blocking my view when filming. So I loaded the .stl file from user SamCass into TinkerCad and modified it to hold my phone with case and lowered one wall.
I printed it at 0.4mm height and 10% fill. It printed in about 30 minutes. The design is simple but effective. I can easily remove the phone and review the video clip.
