I wanted to share my design for a 3D printed ash tray phone holder. The other designs I've seen tend to use a gripping type mount. I use a magnetic mount in my daily driver and thought that my 914 should have the same convenience.

Instead of trying to solve the problem of the mount, this ash tray is more of a mount for a mount. It emulates the fitting pattern found on many mounts designed for air vents. It should work with any mount you find that claims to work on air vents.

The model and instructions can be found on Thingiverse Feedback is welcome and appreciated.

*EDIT*
Raw unpainted 3d printed ones will be $25 shipped anywhere in the US, and painted ones will be $65 shipped anywhere in the US. Payment methods accepted are Paypal, Venmo, and Square Cash. Sorry, I can't take anything else. The actual mount isn't included, You can get any variety of round air vent mounts off Amazon. For example, Mount 1 Mount 2

I have a general question. I grew up with a NO magnets near computers.
Its how we erased hard drives as the final step.

So, what is different here? Why does this not wack out the phone, screen, gps etc?

I looked that up a little while ago and the general consensus is the magnet won't hurt the phone. Surprised me.

I think it's because smart phones uses Newer hard drive technology--solid state rather than the old hard drive technology with mechanical arm and magnetic charge.

I am also interested in getting one.

Wow, I didn't expect this much interest in this. Raw unpainted 3d printed ones will be $25 shipped anywhere in the US, and painted ones will be $65 shipped anywhere in the US. It takes about 12 hours to print each one, and even longer to post process to the surface finish in my photos. So it may take a few days for them to be ready. Let me know if you're still interested.
