Introduction: 3D Printed Tablet Hider and Holder
This is a fixture that will hide your tablet underneath your cabinet. When you want to use your tablet the holder will fold out to provide easy access to the tablet. The holder bed will fit any tablet under 11" wide x 7.5" tall x.43" thick. This would be perfect for any kitchen that dosent have lots of space to spare or if you want to hide your tablet. Everything is designed to be printed without using supports and I was able to keep the width to only one inch so that it will disappear behind the bottom lip of your cabinet when folded up. The largest part to be printed will fit on a bed that is at least 6.3" (160mm) X 8.27" (210mm). Some of the parts do require gluing together and I have included the locatios in the instructions. I included a couple assembly pictures and tried to include everything that you would need to make it. The part names also say how many of those parts are to be printed. The only hardware that you will need will be four screws to attach it to the bottom of your cabinet.
