Here's a picture of the finished version compared with the unfinished version. Doesn't come with the mount, you can pick one of the many round air vent mounts of your choice.

I grew up with a NO magnets near computers. Its how we erased hard drives as the final step.

So, what is different here? Why does this not wack out the phone, screen, gps etc?

Magnetic storage media was the only thing vulnerable. (Well, and old tube monitors, lol. We had fun with magnets around those, but also used them to degauss and fix them.)

Hard drives and tape were magnetic media, and thus susceptible to magnetic damage. Solid state isn't. Thankfully, magnetic platters, tapes, etc., are obsolete and waning. You also don't have to worry about running modern electronics through xray and the like when you fly.

I wanted to share my design for a 3D printed ash tray phone holder. The other designs I've seen tend to use a gripping type mount. I use a magnetic mount in my daily driver and thought that my 914 should have the same convenience.

Instead of trying to solve the problem of the mount, this ash tray is more of a mount for a mount. It emulates the fitting pattern found on many mounts designed for air vents. It should work with any mount you find that claims to work on air vents.

The model and instructions can be found on Thingiverse Feedback is welcome and appreciated.

*EDIT*
Raw unpainted 3d printed ones will be $25 shipped anywhere in the US, and painted ones will be $65 shipped anywhere in the US. The actual mount isn't included, You can get any variety of round air vent mounts off Amazon. For example, Mount 1 Mount 2

I received my ash tray mount today. It's light in weight, but feels very solid and fits into the ash tray opening perfectly. Thanks Evan!

Got mine! Fits very well, nice and snug. Great job on the printing.

Any recommendations on sanding and painting? How'd you get the front face so even and smooth? Any filler, or did you just paint it and sand it down until it was smooth?

I sanded it down with 240 grit, 320 grit and finally 400 grit. Then it was primed with Rust-Oleum Black Sandable Primer. More sanding with 400 grit sandpaper until all surface defects have been removed. Another layer of primer, then a final sand at 600 grit. Then a coat of SEM Trim Black paint is applied. Sand away any defects with 600 grit. Apply a final coat of the SEM paint. It's a long process, the primer needs at least 24 hours to cure between sandings, and the paint need 48. The actual amount of work is only a couple hours, but lots of waiting for it to dry and cure.

Yeah, still making them. The unfinished ones have a pretty quick turn around, but finished ones take a while. I'll PM each of you individually when yours is ready to ship. Thanks.
