For a long time was looking for a suitable and easy to print smartphone holder for the car. The design should be as flexible as possible adaptable to different smartphone dimensions, be stable and easily removable. For the latter requirement, I finally arrived at the attachment to the ventilation slot, in which case, in particular, the stable design and solid print of the attachment is important.
At #Thingiverse I found what i was looking for. The selected design consists of a total of 4 parts, is very easy to put together and meets all my needs. In addition, it also looks nice, or can be customized by color of the filament to the individual needs or the color environment in the car. Another advantage is that all parts are only plugged together and thus quite simply everything can be disassembled again, or, for example, the attachment to the venting slot can be printed several times and the rest can then be simply relocated as needed in the car. In my BMW 225xe there are ventilation openings in the dashboard on both the driver’s side and the passenger side, and there are also suitable openings in the middle. I will therefore print the attachment directly in the appropriate amount and then attach to the openings, so then depending on the needs Samrtphone holder can be attached to the various places in the car.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so below is my printed object as I mounted it on the driver’s side:
This is how it looks when my smartphone is plugged into the holder:
Overall, everything is very stable during the ride, nothing wobbles or makes noises, even during fast cornering, there are no problems. Below is the link to my make on thingiverse:
