Summary

Charging Stand for the Huawei Watch. The charging puck fits snugly, the ridges allow for some variations in printer tolerance. The cable fits through the stand and emerges from the base.

I have also included a version without the Huawei logo.

Print Settings

Printer:

Zortrax M200

Rafts:

Doesn't Matter

Supports:

Yes

Resolution:

0.14 mm

Infill:

full


Notes:

I used Z-Ultrat for this print, it came out really nice. ABS or PLA shoud work too.

Post-Printing

This needs to be printed with supports and removing them can be a bit of a pain, but it should work out. Remove white spots where the raft and supports were touching with a heat gun or a ligher.

Great job! I realy love it!

Printed on a Creality CR-10, sliced with Cura (Mac). Worked great. Some support material issues in the cable channel, but being that this was my second ever 3D print, I'll put that on me. :) I was a little concerned that the base wouldn't be heavy enough, but it supports the watch perfectly fine.

What function did you use to create the sweeping stand support structure with the slot for the cable? I tried creating a profile and using sweep to follow a predetermined path, but no luck. Any suggestions?

The connecting part that goes up is a loft, connecting two rectangular faces on the base and ring parts. Halfway through the loft there is a circular section (but that is not necessary).
The slit is made using a swept cut that roughly follows the centerline of the loft. The sweep rotates along the way so it matches the angles of the base and the ring parts.
Hope this helps!

Perfect. I created a loft and used a path as my centerline rail. Worked perfectly. Thank you!

Every time I try to print this the ring gets really messed up. Can anyone offer advice? I'm generating the gcode file using slic3r on a mac. If you have better free options I'm open to them as well.

Thanks!

It would probably be beneficial if I gave out some of my settings in Slic3r......

Infill Density: 20%
Fill Pattern: Honeycomb
Top/Bottom Pattern: Rectilinear
Skirt Loops: 1 loop, 1 layer @ 6mm from object
Generate support material: Yes
Overhang Threshold: 40 deg
Raft layers: 2
Contact Z Distance: .2mm
Pattern: Rectilinear Grid
Pattern Spacing: 2.5mm
Pattern Angle: 0 deg
Don't support Bridges: No
Z Offset: 0
XY Size Compensation: 0

Thanks in advance!

Yeah it can be a tricky print. Others have reported success using Cura, or by generating support structures with MeshMixer. Good luck!

Yeah I've had a few intresting results with slic3r. I'm thinking it might not be a great program to use to generate gcode files. Downloading Cura now.

Welcome!
I have a question. What is the hole diameter, where the charging circuit can be stacked. I have another clock.
Thank you for your response.

The hole is 36,4 mm, but there are 4 ridges of 0,5 mm. The charger itself is about 36 mm.

I couldn't find a decent stand for my watch, so I am having one of these printed for me :)

Looks like the size isn't right if you just load it up in Cura (too small). Can you provide any input on the scaling?

You're the first one to say this so it might be your cura settings. Scale is in mm, the round part of the base is 50 mm ⌀

Thanks for making this. I don't have a 3D printer yet so I had one done by Shapeways and it is now on its way. So if any of you want to get one made by them they are confident that they can print one successfully in several materials. Maybe I'll get one in a different material for my other charger. Great work! Thanks again!

If anyone reads this, and wants to order one from shapeways, I would appreciate it if you buy it from my shapeways shop. That way, I get a few $ as well. Here is the link: http://shpws.me/Lxqj Thanks!

I need help please! Ive tried 5 times and this thing isnt working out. I did support everywhere and touching build plate but nothing works. It is able to build the base and the top half, but the bottom half of the circle for the charger messes up. Please any help would be great.

Took me 3 tries to get a decent print. I used Cura.

Support Type: Everywhere
Structure Type: Grid
Overhang Angle For Support (deg): 40
Fill Amount (%): 15
Distance X/Y (mm): 0.7
Distance Z (mm): 0.15

You may want to try Fill Amount (%): 10. At 15% it was hard to get the supports off.

I've had too many problems printing it as well..

  • Update -
    Ok , so i finally got it to print and it came out quite nicely. I used meshmixer (which is free) to generate the supports for it and converted it to a solid and exported it as an stl. I was skeptical that it would print at all since the supports were so scarce (only 2 narrow 'trees' going up from the base to support he ring on top) but to my surprise, it printed and the supports were really easy to remove and clean (even the ones in the groove on the base) but meshmixer usually creates brilliant support structures though.

Do you have that stl available? I'm having some trouble printing this model.

With the auto generated support on my Zortrax it works fine. You can try to change the orientation on the build plate, but that might require even more supports.
As a last resort, if you really want the stand but are unable to print it yourself, it is also for sale on shapeways. They use powder printers and quality is guaranteed there.
