Remix of djui's dock in Fusion 360. Used his Antimony files as a basis, so all dimensions are very close to the original. A few changes were made:

  • Tangent on the main body curve was slightly off.
  • Charger cylinder is .5mm larger to allow for a looser fit.
  • Only a single cable channel is provided, and is U-shaped instead of three-quarters round.
  • 5mm hole in the back so you can poke something in there to remove the charger more easily.

The STL is hundreds of times smaller than the one generated by Antimony.

Update: added a version with a deeper cable channel and a 20mm rear hole based on feedback.

This printed wonderfully with 1.75 PLA the first try. Fits my wife's Apple 2 watch (smaller version of the two currently offered) perfectly. Had to trim a bit of the bottom off for the cord to fit inside the "tunnel", but nothing a little knife couldn't fix. Since I'm new to 3D printing, I'm confident it is in my setup that caused that. Thank you for posting this.

This is an excellent design. Printed with a 50% tetrahedral infill and it looks/feels great.

Works great! Printed at a lower quality for a faster print and the hole for the usb and route for cable came out a little too tight, but nothing an exacto knife can't fix in a couple minutes. Great design.

Thanks for sharing such an awesome design. We've tweaked print parameters to make a heavier base so it's got a very nice solid feel. We're currently listing these on our Etsy shop for anyone interested - https://www.etsy.com/listing/276277650/

Does this work with the 42mm apple watch?

Made one for my wife and one for myself. I set it up for her without telling her. She asked me where I bought it & was shocked that I'd made it. Thank you for helping me score some wife points with my printer! She was skeptical but is coming around to the usefulness of it.

Will this fit both the 38 and 42mm Apple Watch?

Don't know. djui says in the comments on his model that it should work with the 38mm, but I don't have one and can't test. I can easily shrink the pocket if it doesn't work.

Fusion 360 looks really sophisticated! Could you upload the source file so I can learn how a bit more about Fusion 360?

The f3d is the source file. You need to upload it to the Fusion servers before you can view/work on it.

You can step through the history at the bottom to see how it was put together. I followed your general construction from Antimony (mostly), which is not the natural way to do it in Fusion, but I wanted to be sure to get a similar result.

That's great! I really like the optimization a and especially the conversion in file size. I never had the time to redo it in a different app.
