The large full solid one is only 5mm at 100% scale when imported into a slicer. Also, there's no edge curves to keep the ipad snapped into the wallmount, no matter how much you apply the resin after the print it will result in having the ipad eventually fall out and smash against the floor.

2.5 years and counting ;)
No way in hell that thing is coming out of the mount on its own, it's a pretty snug fit. The bottom part is even held in place by the Lightning connector. Also no need to dramatize things if you haven't even tried printing one yourself.
I probably exported the STL in inches format. Just scale up by 2540%.

Hello, fiendie!
I saw this article because I searched the Internet.
I'm sorry, but could you make a drawing for the iPad Mini3 as well?
Similar designs for commercial use are being sold at prices that are not available or are ridiculous.
If you have time, I would appreciate it if you could also make drawings of the iPad's Mini 3 version.
The exact size is shown in the comment below on ulflun.

Hallo Andreas,

Habe die Kommentare hier verfolgt und gelesen, dass letztes Jahr schonmal nach einem überarbeiteten Halter für ein Ipad mini 1/2/3 gefragt wurde (haben alle die gleichen Maße).
Hattest du damals was entworfen? Wenn ja, würde ich mich freuen wenn ich irgendwie daran kommen würde.

Gruß Roman

Hallo Roman,

bin leider nicht dazu gekommen. Da ich mittlerweile auf Fusion 360 umgestiegen bin, müsste ich das quasi auch from scratch machen, dazu habe ich leider im Moment keine Zeit. Das Design ist aber eigentlich auch ziemlich simpel :)


The size for me is wrong? only a few mm in total.. On iPad_Mini_Mount.stl

Hmmm, maybe the scaling is off. What slicer are you using?

Awesome work fiendie!

I'm planning for a project and also have these older iPad Mini 2's. Is it possible to get it to fit a iPad Mini 2?

Googling the dimensions it seems to be different opinions about the actual dimensions, but I hope Apple have the correct ones themselves?

iPad Mini 2 Dimensions (ref: https://support.apple.com/kb/sp693?locale=en_US)
Height: 7.87 inches (200 mm)
Width: 5.3 inches (134.7 mm)
Depth: 0.29 inch (7.5 mm)

iPad Mini 3 Dimensions (ref: https://support.apple.com/kb/SP709?locale=en_US)
Height: 7.87 inches (200 mm)
Width: 5.3 inches (134.7 mm)
Depth: 0.29 inch (7.5 mm)

iPad Mini 4 Dimensions (ref: https://support.apple.com/kb/sp725?locale=en_US)
Height: 8.0 inches (203.2 mm)
Width: 5.3 inches (134.8 mm)
Depth: 0.24 inch (6.1 mm)

I would really appreciate any help - Forever thankful if you have time to release a iPad mini 2 version :)

Also, do you think it would be possible to mount it horizontal? And add a hole for the charging cable if not possible to attach it behind the mount.

Hey fiendie, your wall mount looks great. I will install a home automation system in my house soon and i need a wall mount für an Ipad mini 2. Do you know if it will fit in your mount?
If not, maybe you could build one? That would be very nice.
Sorry for my bad english and greetings from Germany.

Kein Problem ;)
Vielleicht einfach mal die genauen Maße durchgeben, dann vergleiche ich das mit meiner Zeichnung.

Super, vielen Dank für die schnelle Antwort. Es handelt sich doch um ein iPad mini 3.
Hier die Maße:

Höhe 200mm
Breite 134,7mm
Tiefe 7,5mm

Würde mich freuen wenn es klappt. Foto vom Druck würde ich selbstverständlich hochladen :-)

Edit: Bräuchte wenn auch die geteilte Version, da mein Drucker ebenfalls nicht so ein großes Druckbett besitzt.

Das iPad Mini scheint 3 mm höher und dafür 1 mm dünner geworden zu sein. Die Breite ist wohl identisch.
Ich schau mal, ob ich das im Laufe der Woche hinbekomme.

Would absolutely love to see this for other iPads as well. I have a 3 and original Air I'd love to mount on the wall, but with the cable hidden like your design.

Can't find anything like it.

2 questions! Could you design this for the 9.7'' Ipads and what app is that! :)


guess I could ;)
I only have an iPad Pro to test it with tho. Should probably fit the IPad Air 2 as well.
I'm a little busy at the moment but I'll see what I can do.

The app is called Loxone and comes with my smart home system: http://www.loxone.com



I also gonne make a Smarthome with Loxone now. I have a bunch of ipad mini 2. would be grate to have one for that as well.
Though I want to make a remix that is only bottom half. With holes in the back that fit the electrical box. Also a bit that holds the cable in place som I can dock and undock the ipad. Do you want to take a look at that or can you share the files?
