The finished Kindle stand:

My new Kindle stand printed using blue filament

It worked! Bad part of this design is that it does not accommodate the case that I have on my Kindle, so to use the stand with the Kindle I'll have to remove the case. The next photo shows my son's nook color sitting sideways on it. I might try to modify the design so that it will accommodate the Kindle with its case and also prop it up a bit more vertically. Still, this was a really fun experiment with my first 3d printout.

3D print

Great program thanks.
Lutzbot is open hardware the otherone I think not.
Stl files as far as I know are not editable (binaries) problem of open washing in websites. Original CAD not available. Use freeCAD to do more.
Magnet: use a tight tolerance to go in but use a larger chamber inside.
