Super helpful thanks

which printer did you use?

I use a craftbot, which has a really nice heated bed, allowing me to print ABS without warping (though I still have to preclean the bed with acetone before printing each time -- I forgot once, and had an edge lift). I should note I do use kapton tape on the bed which works really well with ABS

I somehow missed that this only works with a particular cable but it makes sense given all the different size cases of micro usb. Although I wish it could be customized with the more common straight angle charging cables.

My car charger version of this (which I'm working on right now) will work with straight cables - the user will have to type in dimensions of cable's end, and it will generate a template. The problem with straight cables for the desktop model is that they're long, and the phone sticks way up off the desk. One of my first prototypes had this, and it didn't look nearly as nice.

I apologize for the ignorance... I don't speak English and I'm using the translator to talk to you. To read the page it gets a little tricky,, hehehe. But I managed to do what you explained... Again thanks a lot!!

Hello.. There is the possibility of you posting the file in STL?.. Thank you very much

An STL file can be gotten through the customizer. There is an "Open in Customizer" button on the lower right of the Thingiverse page. If you click this, you can type in the dimensions of your phone, and it will create a thing with an STL specific to your device. I've attached a diagram to this which shows what the various measurements represent (you can keep all other parameters as default).

When you create the thing, the "Publish" button is clicked by default. Please do not publish the thing until you have printed and verified that your dimensions are correct. At that point I encourage you to publish the thing with a picture, and your phone/case make and model in the title so that others with the same phone can simply use that.
