3D Printed Tripod Adapter for Smartphones

I got a new 3D printer, a Ultimaker 2. After testing it out with some small test prints, I printed my first own custom design on this printer. (I’ve only designed for SLT printing previously and not extrusion printing before, this is my first design for extrusion printing).

It’s an adapter that holds my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with a wireless charging S-View flip cover case) and has threads (a 1/4″-20 threaded nut) so it can be mounted to a standard camera tripod. This phone has 4K video recording so why not?

The design is very custom because I need to consider the fact that I have a S-View flip cover case.

(I know I could also use threaded metal inserts, but nuts are easier to buy at the local Home Depot)
