Full Version: Magnetic Phone Mount Ash Tray

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.

Great looking solution!
Jeff Bowlsby

C-Ya MK
I'm interested
r_towle
me too!

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.
Andyrew
Been using mine for 2.5 years. No issues with the phone.

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.
wes
$25 bucks, I'm in!
BENBRO02
For $25 I'd like one too.
Jeff Bowlsby
I'm in for a finished one. Just advise when and where to send $.

Thx!
Andyrew
To be clear, does the prices include the Pictek magnet?


Just curious, my dash design cant use this.

I'm interested in a $25 raw, unfinished one.

Great work!

Magnetic storage media was the only thing vulnerable. (Well, and old tube monitors, lol. We had fun with magnets around those, but also used them to degauss and fix them.)

Hard drives and tape were magnetic media, and thus susceptible to magnetic damage. Solid state isn't. Thankfully, magnetic platters, tapes, etc., are obsolete and waning. You also don't have to worry about running modern electronics through xray and the like when you fly.

The first batch has shipped. Thank you to everyone.
RAX 914
I received my ash tray mount today. It's light in weight, but feels very solid and fits into the ash tray opening perfectly. Thanks Evan!
clapeza
Got mine! Fits very well, nice and snug. Great job on the printing.

Any recommendations on sanding and painting? How'd you get the front face so even and smooth? Any filler, or did you just paint it and sand it down until it was smooth?

I sanded it down with 240 grit, 320 grit and finally 400 grit. Then it was primed with Rust-Oleum Black Sandable Primer. More sanding with 400 grit sandpaper until all surface defects have been removed. Another layer of primer, then a final sand at 600 grit. Then a coat of SEM Trim Black paint is applied. Sand away any defects with 600 grit. Apply a final coat of the SEM paint. It's a long process, the primer needs at least 24 hours to cure between sandings, and the paint need 48. The actual amount of work is only a couple hours, but lots of waiting for it to dry and cure.

I would like one, unfinished, if these are still available?

I would like one as well. if they are still available.

Yeah, still making them. The unfinished ones have a pretty quick turn around, but finished ones take a while. I'll PM each of you individually when yours is ready to ship. Thanks.
Jeff Bowlsby
Fantastic fit and manufacture. This has to be in contention for 914 product of the year...Thanks Evan!

914 7T3
PM Sent for an unfinished mount.

The Kenu brand mount is small and will provide a snug fit both around the phone and into the vent or ash tray mount in this case. It will also swivel so the phone can orient in either direction. This is another alternative to the magnet style as shown earlier in the thread.

Count me in for an unfinished one! PM me when you get a chance with payment details via PayPal.

Thanks,

I'd like a finished version please PM with detail for payment -

Dr. Phil

and a bit more info on brands and location to purchase the required magnetic mounts, I have not shopped these and am not familiar with who carries the one you have pictured at beginning of the thread,

Mine came yesterday. Looks great. Highly recommend.

There is a week+ lead time on the finished version, I'll PM you when its ready to ship. As for where to get the mounts. Here are a few examples from Amazon. Mount 1 Mount 2 And a much more expensive for no reason version from Best Buy. Mount 3 They are pretty common, most places that have phone accessories will have one version or another.

So you have shipped a batch.... are you taking orders for batch 2? Add an unfinished one for me.

Clark


Just had a thought....maybe V2?

could you hollow out the back (like an ashtray)? Maybe not as big as an ashtray, but great place to stick my change.

It's not really made in batches, they are produced on order. But, I ship them out in batches. I've added you to the list. I'll look into adding some space behind so it can used as a tray. Thanks for the input.

thanks, let me know when and how to pay.
