LinnStrument iPad Holder

This replaces one of the wooden LinnStrument sides with a holder that keeps an iPad in place at a comfortable angle.

The holder accommodates all iPad sizes from the first model to the latest Air, including some iPhones (I tried the 5 and the 6+). Since the LinnStrument can be bus-powered from all iOS devices with a lightning connector, this is a really nice standalone expressive music-making combo.

Update 18/01/2015

The holder didn't work with some headphone plugs when using an iPad Air. Made some updates to fix this.

Materials and methods

Just print it, support is included, remove the red sections from the screenshots.

Then slide the sides on the middle and screw it onto the LinnStrument's back instead of the wooden side. You can use the same screws, but I didn't use the washer of the middle screw since it sticks out a but too much then, possibly scuffing the iPad.

Geert, I got a quote for printing this and the guy thought it was strange that it's hollow. Is there some practical advantage to that?
