Knuckles Structure Sensor Grip

For years we’ve been using our Structure Sensor with our iPad Mini. The camera resolution doesn’t compare to the newer iPhone 7. So we’ve remixed a tripod mount and a new tougher looking handle to create the ultimate sensor rig.

This hand rig works for iPhone 7 Plus and below. It does require a flexible mobile phone tripod mount but we had several of them laying around in the office. You can get one for $6 here:

This rig uses the base of the Structure Sensor Tripod mount.

When we saw this Sensor Grip, we knew that we wanted to remix the handle.

We didn’t have the hardware for the tripod and connection mounts so a little post print sanding and Loctite glue takes care of the remaining steps you need to make your own. This is just our first version and future updates are coming.


  • HANDLE
  • TRIPOD
  • NUT (3)
  • BOLT
  • ROUND BOLT THREAD

You could go to Home Depot to source the NUT, BOLT, ROUND BOLT but if you want to save a trip. Print all. Slight sanding and Loctite glue will get you there.
