I have a 3D printed adapter to use iPhone as a webcam because I almost had a heart attack when I saw what my boss proposed

few days ago, final boss of appleferaIn this article, Pedro Aznar published an at-home and inexpensive way to create a support for the iPhone to be used as a webcam for the Mac, which is what MacOS Ventura will release. While we wait for the final release, beta goes, beta comes; It is worth creating the necessary infrastructure, even if it is accompanied by [música de suspense] An Ikea bag and a pair of clothespins,

One, who experienced a sudden pain in his left arm while watching the final montage, recognized Pedro’s courage, however ambitious he might have been. And although the tweezers offered are functional, no doubt, I thought it appropriate to look for more alternatives. aestheticWhat say youth? A kind reader of this medium, triferoyou were so kind to share with me Some plans to print in 3D Support designed to “hang” the iPhone on the Mac screen, And thus being able to show your face in high definition during a video call.

Residual cost in content and a seamless experience

Once these plans are in place, and waiting for the usual suspects to launch their official proposals, thirty Dollar Or the same amount, I went on Twitter and asked some Valencian with a 3D printer to help me print it, noting that the business on duty was closed for the whole month of August… and someone showed up.

They printed the support in an hour and it was perfect. Yes or Yes This model needs a MagSafe charging base to be able to work, however due to magnetism only, it does not require electricity, This means that if we don’t want to sacrifice the MagSafe base, we can resort to the MagSafe clamping ring without any electrical circuitry.

I tried to make a video call with Pedro and beyond an incident with FaceTime due to using the Ventura beta that forced us to switch to Google Meet, everything was perfect and when I went with the integrated camera So he saw a jump in visual quality for iPhone on MacBook.

MagSafe Charging Base, inserted. It is important to be able to hold the iPhone.

The weight of the adapter is about 7 grams, so at the approximate cost of a roll of PLA or ABS filament, about 20 euros per kg, The cost of the adapter would be around 15 euro cents purely in terms of printing material. Then we have to add the cost of electricity, the refinement of the 3D printer, and of course, the work of the person in charge, who in this case did it in a kind and benevolent manner.

And so it goes on.

An important nuance for those daring to print to this type of adapter: The MacBook’s screen isn’t designed to support weight, so it has to be at a right angle. If we tilt it backwards, the iPhone will fall out of the adapter Being embedded in such a fine thickness.

These types of items are what can make the most of a 3D printer at home: everything that doesn’t require wiring and can be printed in one piece, a lot compared to buying these products from third parties. Can save all the money.

Now I have an adapter that will allow me to offer good quality video calls, without having to resign myself to a below average image on a 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro. Because one can’t help but think that if Apple has a solution for regular cameras, saying “you can now hook up the iPhone to the Mac”, Samsung or Xiaomi would have given it, laughing at these parts. Must have been heard in seven neighborhoods. But this consumer electronics, like democracy, is strange and beautiful.
