I decided it would be great to use it to create a minimal weight portable stand for my smartphone using some Sugru and some other easily available materials. I decided as an additional challenge that I'd use just a pack of Sugru. (and a BIC pen)
Let's see what I learnt along the way!
Step 1: Rationale for the Piece
The first step was to create both pieces using Sugru. I left a wider area in one of the sides of each piece and a endstop on the other side, creating a support to prevent the phone from slipping.
Once you have both parts more or less symetrical then take out the pen cap, and cut through Sugru to create an hexagonal shape.
Step 2: What Doesn't Work
Given the leg length and the phone weight this design is not able to hold the phone and it just falls on its back. The solution is quite obvious once you learn about how balancing works.
Step 3: Fixing the Balance Issue
Step 4: Creating the Hole
Step 5: Final Result
My advice to create your own design is to focus on: making the back leg strong, keep the front legs as separated as possible from the center and aim for 1 cm high endstops to acommodate most models better.
Enjoy this idea as much as I enjoyed playing with Surgru and feel free to add feedback on the comments!
