TinkerCad

Well we had to take stab at creating a 3-d design for printing. I just bought a new Honda FiT and find the lack of a place to mount my iPhone so I can use Waze problematic. I said what if I could design a thing to cradle the phone on the irregular cutout on the left side near age window.

He is the result of my first try:

It’s hard! It took me a while to get the hang of the shape and making a crude hole. I need to take some serious measurements for this to work and figure out how to remove and add material to these shapes.

Not ready for prime time for sure. I will peck at it and see what i can come up with.

  1. What a great idea for a 3D printed project – As a former holder of a Honda Fit (named MissFit) I think it would be a fun digital challenge to create a 3D print to add functionality to all of the Honda Fits excessive number of cup holders! šŸ˜‰
    Nice job! Sounds like the next tool you need is are digital calipers!
