Picture of Lego iPhone (and smartphone) stand, docking available *UPDATED*
Hi, I wanted to bulid a lego iPhone stand which is able to hold the phone in vertical position. Here it goes. I made it in Lego digital designer, because i didn't want to get mine into pieces.

This is my first instructable, hope you'll like it.

I checked that all parts cost a total of 1,3$ if you order it from bricklink.com

Step 1: The parts

Picture of The parts
So, here are the parts on the picture, namely:

The colours really doesn't matter, these were the ones I found at home.

Technic 5M Beam (Yellow) - 4 pcs
Technic Angle Beam 4x2 90° (Black) - 2pcs
Technic Angle Beam 4x2 90° (Yellow) - 4pcs
Technic 15M Beam (Black) - 1pc
Technic Double Angular Beam 3x7 45° (Yellow) - 2 pcs
Technic Lever 3M (Yellow) - 2 pcs
1/2 Bush (Grey) - 6pcs (on the pic there's only 4, sorry about that)
Bush For Cross Axle (Grey) - 7 pcs
Connector Peg W. Friction (Black) - 6 pcs
Connector Peg W. Friction 3M (Black) - 4 pcs
Connector Peg/ Cross Axle (Grey) - 4 pcs
Catch W Cross Hole (Grey) - 4 pcs
Cross Block 90° (Grey) - 2 pcs
Angle Element 0° (Black) - 2 pcs
Angle Element 90° (Black) - 2 pcs
Cross Axle Extension  - M/3 Ribs (Grey) - 2 pcs
Cross Axle 3M (Black) - 4 pcs
Cross Axle 5M (Black) - 5 pcs (if you have 1 more, then you'll just need 2 8M axle)
Cross Axle 8M (Black) - 3 pcs
Cross Axle 10M (Black) - 1 pc
Technic Cross Block 2x1 (Black) - 2 pcs
Technic Cross Block 2x1 (Yellow) - 2pcs

*UPDATE*

If you don't want to connect the cable to your iphone on the stand, or got the charging hole somwhere else on your phone, the whole complex part is optional. It means that the stand may be slightly less stable but also, you would need much less parts.

Here are the parts you need in that case:

Technic 5M Beam (Yellow) - 2 pcs
Technic Angle Beam 4x2 90° (Black) - 2pcs
Technic 15M Beam (Black) - 1pc
Technic Double Angular Beam 3x7 45° (Yellow) - 2 pcs
Technic Lever 3M (Yellow) - 2 pcs
1/2 Bush (Grey) - 2 pcs
Bush For Cross Axle (Grey) - 5 pcs
Connector Peg W. Friction 3M (Black) - 4 pcs
Catch W Cross Hole (Grey) - 4 pcs
Cross Block 90° (Grey) - 2 pcs
Angle Element 0° (Black) - 2 pcs
Angle Element 90° (Black) - 2 pcs
Cross Axle 3M (Black) - 3 pcs
Cross Axle 5M (Black) - 5 pcs
Cross Axle 10M (Black) - 1 pc

With these parts, it costs 0,88$ on bricklink.com.

And don't forget, if you use only these parts, to skip step 4!

Fantastic idea, and very well explained, although this does now mean that I have to spend the next 3 hours digging through my lego looking for the right parts :)

Good luck! :)) If you're ready I would really like to see a photo of your stand. :)

Took about 5 hours to find the parts I wanted then about half an hour to put together. Substituted a few pieces for various reasons.

Wow, looks pretty great! :) I see the reasons of the substitutions, I like them :) Also see, that you had to get a longer axle because of the width of your phone, nice assembly!

Why there is no Download?
Punyoka (author)  Bibbern10 months ago
I don't know why you can't download it, for me it works, but you can make it without downloading the pdf. :)
