#10 Smartphone Accessory Design by Miguel Noble
Tried to do a more robust version which would feel safer on the finger. This one has a more geometric look which I think it's modern and minimalist.

#11 Smarthphone Accessory variation by Miguel Noble
This would be a variation of the previous option with a larger rubber band.

#6 Iphone Holder rev A by Miguel Noble
I tried to do an ergonomic design, which is comfortable for the finger. By adding a nice curve on the base and more holes to the rubber part, the product will be adaptable and comfortable to any hand.

Hi Miguel, as you may have seen, I uploaded the base part, that interacts with the "band".

That base, has a full lip around the perimeter of the part that is a marrying design to the band's inner lip. Once the base is slide into the band through the side openings, the base lip holds the band down, and allows the band to rotate freely around the base.

Hope that makes sense. You can see the base STL now attached to the project.

Thanks!

Yes, I think you're right.

I was just trying to imagine the mechanism for the gliding perimeter like two little hooks or something like that on those notches.

Maybe you already have this figured out with the full perimeter surrounding it, but basically thinking about having some kind of hooks below was the reason I did like that :).

I'll try to do one last option based on this feedback, a little bit different on the shape too.

Thanks a lot!

Hi Miguel, I think this version works better than your original submissions. Thanks for submitting them.

May I ask, why are there notches on the base vs a lip around the entire perimeter as in the original STL files?

Wouldn't a full perimeter lip glide more smoothly than 2 or 4 notches?

LMK & Thanks!

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

I understand your points. I though the U detail on the middle would help trap the finger better, but you're right, it may feel less secure because its narrower.

For the attachment points I was thinking to have the same width as you currently have, but yeah, I did it like that to have the nice looking rubber band.

Thank you for your feedback. I will try to come back with more ideas!

Hi Miguel! Thanks for entering my contest! This design does look visually pleasing, but I'm not sure it's directionally a good way to go for the following reasons.

1. The middle part generally should be the widest because that is where a person' finger will be. If it's too narrow directly in the center of where there finger will be, it may feel less secure.

2. The attachment points on either end of the band get narrower, and that is a point where I believe needs to be a bit wider, to even distribute the force of the stretching.

Thanks so much for the entry. Please let me know if you have any questions about my feedback!
