After about five months of use, I wrote down all the things I disliked about my original minimalist Huawei Watch changing stand and set out to fix them.
A few of the improvements include:
- Single piece printing - No more will you have to glue multiple pieces together or hope for a friction fit to hold.
- Charging puck removal hole - Pulling the puck out by the cord worked, but seems like a bad solution long term. Now there's a finger hole so you can pop it out from behind.
- Tighter USB cable channel - the USB cable now holds itself in nicely, and the channel prints more easily without any bridging to speak of.
- No more silly alignment fins - While I still stand by the theory, the practice was they were useless (at best) or caused a problem (at worst). So they're gone.
- No more weighted base - Again, I stand by the theory, but in practice the weight made little difference and just added complexity to the print.
- Reduced puck recession - The puck now sticks out from the charger by a millimeter or two. This should make it easier to get the watch aligned every time.
- Pretty rounded corners - The addition of rounded edges allows for a sleek futuristic art-deco look... or, really, means you won't catch your fingers on any plastic edges in the early morning.
All in all, I'd say Mk. 2 is a significant improvement over Mk. 1 both in terms of appearance and functionality and would recommend this over the older version to anyone wanting a Huawei Watch stand.
This should print quite easily. Arrange it so the flat right side is against the bed and the base/puck holder are sticking up in the air.
