3D-Printed iPhone 5 Car Mount April 8, 2013

We got a new MakerBot Replicator 2 at work this month. I had been meaning to print an iPhone 5 mounting adapter for my car, so I thought I’d try to print that using the new printer!

The goal of the mount was to fit onto a car mount that I had bought for my iPhone 3GS back in the day. The suction cup and stand part of the mount conveniently separates from the backplane that holds the phone. That means all I had to do was to match the guide-rail holes on my new iPhone 5 mount for it to snap in perfectly. I chose to make the adapter fit my phone with the case on (using a ZeroChroma VarioProtect 5) and also included a hole for the lightning cable as well.
