Printing some parts for my recent hoodman/mavmount purchase.  I really like the mavmount, HIGH QUALITY!.  The hoodman is good, but too hard to get to my Samsung Galaxy Tab S control functions.  I bought both pieces, but I think I will just use the bottom part for now.  Big hands and small pockets don't go together very well.  Also, my tablet has a button the keeps getting pressed by the hoodman and that really messes things up.  So, figured I make a mount base for the hoodman to set in and fit it to my tablet as well.  Might make a sunshade add-on for the top of the hoodman that I can still fit my hand in to reach the screen as needed.  Here's a rendering of the design that is printing now.

Thanks for the reply...

First printed this design in NinJaFlex (softer TPU).  It was just too flimsy for me.  Next printed it in PETG and would have been OK, but the design had too tight a pocket for the tablet so it just didn't fit.  Modified the design a bit and printing another on in PETG now.  Might try printing it in nylon too, as it is more flexible then PETG is and more tough as well.  I also have a harder TPU I can try.  It's a good idea and it will work, just a couple wrinkles to work out.

Good job, Rodger.  As a matter of curiosity,  Is it possible to mix TPU's - perhaps with a dual nozzle printer?

Sure.  The only thing with dual extruders is they tend to produce a lessor quality because of excessive oozing.  I have one 3D printer with dual extruders, and 6 single exturders units.  The single extruder units are always running and the dual extruder I use at my desk for product design prototyping.

What I was thinking was printing the tablet holder area with a more flexible material and support area with a harder TPU.  Maybe 2 pieces?

I'll look at what is printing now and see.  I can print the whole thing in the harder TPU and it might be fine as well.  The design however has a lot of necessary "holes" in it, and this is the reason it is too flexy with NinjaFlex.  I'd prefer a single extrusion over dual extrusion for the reason mentioned, but your idea is possible for sure.
