Back in the day, I designed a custom iPhone dock for my wife in the shape of a Mario 1-Up Mushroom and because I never had a reliable 3D printer, I actually never even got to print one! Anyways, now that I have my Form1, I designed and printed a new design of custom iPhone dock. The idea is to have some geometry to hold the cable in place and then the phone just slides into place on top of it. She needed a dock since she has a “lifeproof” case which means it doesn’t fit on any standard iPhone dock.
I also designed it so that the sound and microphone at the bottom go through megaphone shapes to redirect the sound. It actually doesn’t work spectacularly well, but it is still a pretty cool feature.
I’ll post the STL, STEP, Pro/E, and Form file on thingiverse later. I thought I’d share the preliminary results. I’m also planning to paint it up a little bit.
Happy new year!
