--== PLEASE READ ==--
Hey everyone! I am waiting for my tax return before buying an Ultimaker. This is my first submission, and I wanted to make sure I could really make things.
SO! Here is my Samsung Galaxy S3 Dock. It is designed to work with a thin case (about 1 mm). It is untested, so look over it before printing. Also, if you print one, PLEASE let me know how it turns out! It will be a month or two before I can print my copy.
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Includes a cable plug for an extra clean look.
- A 3D Printer
- Hot Glue Gun
- Micro USB Cable (you wonÃ¢â¬â¢t be getting it back)
NOTE: It would be difficult to replace it, so I would use a good one.
- Heavy Book (or what ever)
- A peace of paper.
- Fine Grain Sand Paper (wet sand would be best)
- Print Object - You may need to adjust its dimensions, but it should fit most cases.
Wet sand for appearance (it will be hard to do it later).
- Feed the cable though the rear hole and out the bottom.
- Feed the cable though the front hole on the bottom of the stand and connect it to your phone with the case on.
- Seat the phone tightly in the stand and confirm fit.
NOTE: If it is too tight or too loose, you need to fix it now!
- Cut or tare the paper to about the size of your screen and place it over the screen.
- Firmly tape the phone down (using the paper to keep your screen clean).
- Be sure the phone is seated in the desired location!
- Secure the stand on the edge of a table using the book.
- From the bottom, use the hot glue gun to secure the USB cable in place. Use a lot, but try not to get any on the cable it self (you will need to bend it back later).
NOTE: It is ok to get some glue on the base of the phones case, but be careful; if you get your phone too hot you could damage it!
- Double check the phones seating, this is your last chance to adjust it.
- Let it cool for at lease 5 minutes! Seriously, donÃ¢â¬â¢t rush it.
- Hold the cable taunt so it doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t drop below the stands base.
- Use more hot glue to secure the cable in this position.
- Let the glue harden.
- Install cable plug.
NOTE: You may need to use some sand paper on it to get it to fit. It is meant to be very tight, and NOT meant to be removed after installation.
