Hey all, I've designed a 3D printable stand that'll hold the Nokia charging plate as well as a 928 (and any other phone for that matter, it's just that the 928 was my reference design). I'm releasing the file for free under the creative commons license (i.e. use it freely for personal use!).[S] Unfortunately I'm not sure how to upload/host the file anonymously (Skydrive shows my name so that's a no-no) so any tips that don't require me signing up for some account or another would be appreciated![/S] I used a Makerbot Replicator II to print it out
As you can see, something about the algorithm the printer uses didn't jive real well with the model. I took out the extraneous bits manually with some elbow grease and a hot flathead screwdriver to get the final product (sorry, I can't show it to you with the phone on it as it's my only camera). Following this prototype I've made some modifications to hopefully make it work a bit better, but as I have what I need I haven't printed out the new version yet. I tried to design this to be as lightweight and materials-saving as possible, hope you guys find it useful!

Nice Job! This is exactly what I am looking for. I bought 3 of the wireless charging pads when they were 25$ on ebay. With this I could turn them all into stands. Looking forward to seeing the designs.

Got my 3d printed stand today
needed a bit or work cleaning loose bits of plastic away & i do need to find a bit of weight for the base as its topp heavy, but as it \cost me $20 NZD to make im well happy.
ive also added a n NFC sticker to give me my desktop clock.
Thanks to the original up loader
sorry for the photo quality but i had to use the wife's iphone to take the pictures :(

This is neat, but seems of somewhat limited use since it is almost as cheap for most just to buy the official stand.
What's really needed (hint, hint!) is something like this to create a horizontal charging stand, which doesn't exist yet.
Still, nice work and thanks for sharing with the community!

Re: horizontal stand, there was a guy commenting when this made the front page he'd be willing to design anything people came up with, give the dood a shoutout!
