Made this Kiosk setup for my Maker Faire exhibit which involves an iPhone 6 Plus and my app which controls an LED display over Bluetooth. As you can see in the video, the stand is pretty heavy duty and does not tip over when the tapping on the app. The home button is purposely hidden for Kiosk mode where only one app will be running.

All assembled, the stand weights 1 lb and 1 ounce.

Materials

1/8" Acrylic Sheet

1/4" Acrylic Sheet

Use acrylic colors of your choice but recommend that the bottom and top layers are solid vs. transparent, otherwise the glue marks will show through.

iPhone cable (note you must use an original Apple iPhone lightning cable, after market cables have a lightning connector that is too long to fit correctly)

Equipment

Laser Cutter or Service (I used a GlowForge Laser Cutter)

Acrylic Cement Glue

Step 1: Laser Cutting

Laser cut using the file "iphone 6 and 7 and 8 plus kiosk stand.svg" file.

Step 1: Laser cut 2 pieces of the bottom layer in 1/4" acrylic.

Step 2: Laser cut 1 piece of the middle layer in 1/4" acrylic and 2 pieces in 1/8" acrylic.

Step 3: Laser cut 1 piece of the top layer in 1/4" acrylic and 4 pieces in 1/8" acrylic. Optional: Engrave some instructions or signage on the top piece.

Note: I'd recommend to use solid acrylic colors instead of transparent for the bottom layer and top layer pieces as the glue marks will show you through otherwise.

Step 2: Assembling

Use acrylic cement and glue together one layer at a time.

Step 1: Glue the bottom and middle layers together first.

Step 2: Then glue the top layers.

Step 3: And then glue the bottom layer to the top layer.

Step 4: For the top layer with the white "Tap Design" text, I rubbed in some white paint and then took a napkin that sank into the engraved text and then wiped off the excess paint
