Hey! Thanks for making this. It works perfectly for the microscope I'm working on. I did have to widen the scope mount to a 45mm gap as the eyepieces on mine were just a little bit too big. Also, I have a OnePlus 5T phone which is pretty wide/heavy and even with the case on it just fits! I used 20% infill on the scope mount and 40-50% infill on the other pieces and it all worked well. Again thanks!

It's a very nice design!
The only issue is that screws aren't strong enough.
I used 1 70% infill and still not that strong, but a 70% infill is enough to hold everything together...
Thanks for that!

The only problem I ran into was the clamp clip had an issue in Simplify3d. It looks like there is an error in the .stl with the ball socket. Simplify3d couldn't slice it properly until I repaired it with meshmixer.

However, I did try slicing it in Cura and It didn't seem to have any problems.

How wide will the phone clamp part open?
