This device is a versatile dock for charging your iOS devices. iPads won't tip it over, and iPhones fit perfectly. Your 30-pin cable will be held in place by the channel in the bottom, an idea I brutally stole from Zaggo's iPhone dock. His thing is totally awesome, but it wouldn't fit my iPad as well, which is why I created this. The model was created in modo, and I've attached the original .lxo file.


I recommend printing this thing with a high amount of infill to make it weigh more. This picture from Zaggo's dock shows how best to get the cable in: http://www.thingiverse.com/image:6503

It works! I had some problems with the front edge delaminating. That is not a knock on your design, it was me still learning how to level the platform.

I like the design and printed one .. only thing I don't like is the angle at which it supports the ipad. If I can figure out how to get the lxo into something I know how to use I might try and change it a bit to maybe make it lean back 5-10 degrees more than current.

Had Zero problems, Great job!

Needed to be modified slightly to fit the cable in. Also had a little curling around the edges (30% infill w/ 1 shell). Kapton HPB. Might re-design - but works well enough.

This should be FANTASTIC!

Printing now! 8-) 8-)
