So I wanted to study the vibration signatures of my 3D printers and it hit me that the easiest (also quickest) was to use an older iPhone 4s which I was using for timelapse videos but how to mount it? Well I found a bike mount on Thinigiverse which was written in Open-SCAD and (here is the orignal: www.thingiverse.com/thing:426872) was able to modify it from a round tube to a square one for the 20 x 20 maker-rail on many of my printers. Then I needed an app and while I am an Apple Dev, by the time wrote and debuged something it was easyer to just go the iOS App Store and get this App (diy3dtech.com/iphone-vibration-sensor-app/ ) which fit the bill and it was off to the races and has been a quite interesting project!
Here is my updated version on thingiverse if your interested: www.thingiverse.com/thing:2691509

I am also interested in hearing what you guys think of this data too so please me comments below 🙂
