Summary

Apple Watch Series1 & Series2 360 Charging Dock / Stand with Wire Storage

Charging Dock for 38mm & 42mm Apple Watch Series1 and Series2 in different Designs...

Because i was not happy with the existing Apple Watch Docks i decided to design my own one. Inspired from the Moto 360 Charging Dock as some other guys here.

One thing was very important for me, because the Apple Watch Charging Wire is very long and i hate that mess with all that Wire on my Desk!!! So i decided to add an Wire Storage into the Charging Dock so you can store the excessive Wire there.

Make my day by push Like Button if you like it and post your Makes!... And if your realy relay LOVE it a TIP to support my work ist allways welcome :-)

Print Settings

Printer Brand:

RepRap

Printer:

Prusa i3

Rafts:

No

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.2 mm

Infill:

30% Honeycomb


Notes:

Pay attention by 20mm layer height and slow down print speed for the next few layer to prevent stuck on the layer.

I Print it in PLA without Support and with 15% Honeycomb infill.

If your printer is well calibrated the charger pop easily out if you tap the holter on a solid surface, a table for example. In my case one hit and the charger comes out.

How I Designed This

Just printed the rounded one for my 38mm Apple Watch. I love this design, thank you so much!

Thanks for your feedback, i am realy happy to hear that so many people like the design.
Dont forget to share your make, we all want so see the prints...

Always happy printing!...

I managed to put in my charging cable but now it's stuck in the charging dock... how do i get the cable out!!!

It's hard to tell, but how much clearance is there in the groove that the watch sits in? I'm getting a .3mm shell for my watch, and it would be nice to know if I need to play with the scale any before printing. I'm also going to add a small glasses stand to it, I'll make sure to post the remix.

Hello Zummers, i see you did your Remix allready! Good idea :)
I dont think that a Apple watch with a shell will fit into the holder just by changing the scale. If you realy want to use a shell i guess you have to rebuilt the holder from the scratch.

Happy Printing...

Turns out the shell I got fits just fine on the base dimensions. Anything bulkier would run into issues though.

What a great design. Nice easy print on my Zortrax. Charger fitted with bot problems or fettling... Thanks GiantBrian

Can you upload a STEP file or a shelled STL file? Making this on my Sterolithography machine will take a ton of resin as it will be totally sold. With SLA we cannot do honeycomb fills,,,, it's solid or nothing. Thanks.

Hi,
i dont thing i get what you want, bacause i dont know how your Sterolithography machine works.
Normaly you use a Slicer Software to prepare the STL files for printing. You then get a gcode file that include all information Layer by Layer how the printer should print the Thing (infill yes/no, perimeter etc.) .
If you get me a information how i can generate a STEP file from my original CAD File i will try to help.

Happy printing

Thanks for the reply. If you just export from your CAD software to STEP format, I can import into my CAD software (AutoDesk Inventor) and then shell the model myself and they I can export to STL and load it into my machine. Thanks a lot.
If it's a problem, don't worry about,,,I just thought your model was a cool idea but I do not want to print it as a solid block of resin.

I like the cable management a lot !

But I found it 100% cover the charger, will it be too difficult to take the charger out? A small hole on the back will get the job done much easier I think.

Hi Savio,

thanks for yor feedback!
If your printer is well calibrated the charger pop easily out if you tap the holter on a solid surface, a table for example. In my case one hit and the charger comes out.

Happy Printing...
