MAKE A WIRELESS CHARGING DOCK FOR IPHONE AND APPLE WATCH
I need to have a station to charge my phone and watch at the same time. It needs to be neat as much as possible because I want to place it on my working desk.
I realize that I can make use of the Nightstand mode on apple watch to turn it into a clock. As a result, I will have a charging station, where I can read all notifications without touching my phone, and a clock to see the time whenever I want.
Now, let’s get started!
Here are my 3D design for the charging station:
2. Materials and printed parts
Please find in the list below all the materials needed for this project:
You can find all the printed parts here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2936442
- 1x Part_1_Charge_Wire or 1x Part_1_Charge_Writeless (depends on your need).
- 1x Part_2
- 1x Part_3
You only need to print with 0.2mm/layer and 5% infill for the part_1. It will take approximately 3h30m to print it.
3. Print settings
- Material: PLA
- Support: No
- Resolution: 0.2mm/layer
- Infill: 20%
- Temperature: 190 (C)
- Print all parts and assemble as in the picture below.
And here is what we got after all these steps:
With my design, you are able to hide all spare wires in the bottom of the station.
It took me around 4 hours to print all these parts and the result is absolutely satisfied.
