Hello everyone,

Registered an account on this forum just for this post, and to thank @Axdenied for his generous service to this community!
I just picked up my 2020 Taycan and was also struggling to find a spot for a magnetic phone mount.

Thank you to Axdenied for providing the 3D print file.

I first came across the custom clamp and magnetic mount on proclipusa.com and was about to bite the bullet
shipping to Toronto, Canada came to about $88 CAD
reasons that turned me away from proclip was the adhesive on the clamp, the bulkier design, and the time required for me to receive the mount

i then looked at 3D printing websites to print Axdenied's design, which came to about the same price (or more expensive), and also took quite some time to deliver.

I then came across the public library/community centers in the Markham area (for those also from Toronto) who does 3D printing for a very reasonable price.
I used the link below, uploaded AxDenied's file on Sunday night, received a response on Tuesday, and was able to pick up the mount on Friday!
https://markhampubliclibrary.ca/curbside3d/

I chose 20% infill and 0.1mm high quality for layer height.
the price was $19.50 CAD + taxes and the print was said to take 6.5 hours (medium quality would have been $9.50 + taxes and 3 hours)

the final product came out great!
I got a few magnets online, and ended up with the one below because of its thinner design compared to other magnets. It also covers the top of the mount pretty well and has relatively minimal branding (of course, before it also had next day shipping)
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06XWVHRLX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
used super glue to attach the magnet to the mount

below are some photos for everyone's interests.

One question I have - and this is not a complaint at all, just a question :)
I noticed my mount seems to clamp lower position on the console compared to Axdenied's mount, where his seem to have a larger opening to clamp higher up on the console - or maybe this is just my misconception?
It would be great if the mount clamped a little higher up so when the phone is sitting on the mount, i wouldn't be looking too far down from the winshield when looking at Google Maps on my phone.
Once again, not complaining, i am all grateful for Axdenied's generousity in sharing his 3D print design!

Cheers to @Axdenied!

Glad you like it @900MT 😊
And yes it does sit low and how I wanted it so that I don’t have to “squeeze” too much on the leather to hold it high (and not slide down) and risk leaving marks.

Here is my current setup and where it sits, added a custom MagSafe holder that I designed and glued to it.

work great. I’m still experimenting where I like it best, but I think this location will be the.

this was my solution. Very clean install and works well. It doesn’t get hot either. 👍🏼 Made a video about it. Hopefully this helps.

@Axdenied - Would you mind sharing the custom MagSafe holder you designed? Also what charger did you use? Thanks.

Thank you for the model. I was able to print it.

My problem is that i havent found any strong enough magnet for it. My phone is Smasung S22 Ultra with flip case.

I know this looks ugly, hopefully eventually find strong enough magnets.

Thanks to @Axdenied finally had time to fit this to the car. Works perfectly and all cables are hidden. Very neat and tidy and holds the iPhone in place and charges without any heat build up.
