Foreword

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!

1. Design

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:

Printed parts:

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

You can print multiple parts at the same times without the need for support. Here are my print settings for your reference:
  • Material: PLA
  • Support: No
  • Resolution: 0.2mm/layer
  • Infill: 20%
  • Temperature: 190 (C)

4. Assemble

  • Print all parts and assemble as in the picture below.

5. Result

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.

Have fun!
