I designed this a few weeks ago, but I wasn't able to print it successfully because of massive warping of the printed ABS.
Since I've recently pimped up my MakerBot with a heated build platform, warping of ABS isn't an issue anymore!
That said, be sure to print this either with a very strong raft, with PLA or with a heated build surface...

You'll need a standard iPod/iPhone 30-pin-connector/USB cable for this.


  • Print the object
  • Put the 30-pin connector thru the hole in the bottom.
  • Insert the connector in the cut-out. It's a tight fit. Please don't damage your cable or the connector during this process.
  • Insert the cable in the groove on the bottom.

Tried to build on Replicator 2X, using white ABS, medium quality, heated build plate with and without a raft. Both prints failed. The start of the print seems 'faulty' as it does not lay down the first layer on the build plate / raft but several mm in the air!

Needs to be run through netfabb...

With Reference to "Creuzerm":

Here is the repaired version. It's a confirmed good print on the MakerBot 5th Generation.

This design is extremely good and I found the sizing very accurate. It fit my iPod with silicone case without modifications. Many thanks!!

I used the same chord that you did, however the opening was still a little too small. Just a warning that you may need to rescale the hole, or sand it wider.

I printed one, but it does not work. The iphone end of the usb cable are about 1mm thicker, and about 4-5mm taller than the one on the picture. So it is thick enough that I cant push into the hole.

So measure twice, before you print it. For me it is not working.

I love the well thought out strain relief and the angled slot!
