Summary

Brilliant original design by halcyon can be found here - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1463045. I have had a lot of people ask for this to be printed and from their feedback I have updated it with some of my amends. These are as follows:

  • Added countersunk screw holes for mounting (I did ask halcyon for this and he updated his design, but I went for a more traditional UK bevel screw).
  • Moved the mount holes to line up with the USB/Audio holes - assuming cabled will run downwards/upwards from Echo Dot and gives a more secure mount if mounting into a wooden stud.
  • Added contoured sloped grooves in base to deflect audio from speaker outwards (may/may not make any difference in sound?!!) and to reduce plastic filament.
  • Added arches to speaker holes to reduce plastic filament use and to help reduce amount of bridging needed. Also looks nice!
  • Added support column in middle of USB/audio hole to help with bridging the gap. I found the bridged filament will naturally be a straight line, whereas the hole follows the curve of the mount, so I always had to clean out strings of filament which failed to bond. This halves the gap and there is no more clean up (for my setup). You can see it in the Cura image in the gallery, and the before and after shots. Just snap it out when printed.

If you like this design - hats off to halcyon first for the cool and chunky design! It is still as tight as the original, I like that security. If you want it to be loose - just sand down the inside a little.

Man! Really hard to squeeze her in! Will keep trying with sanding though!

Glad you're finally getting there, as you have found - it does fit, it's just very tight. This design was based off a ceiling mount, so the tolerances had to be next to zero to allow the dot to be held in place with nothing but friction. A well tuned printer and good filament will allow the dot to be pushed in. Most require a little sanding to fine tune it. Some people have even said it was too loose, and use some electrical tape to help pack it in...(!!)

Good to see the thing still being printed though!

Hey chunky! Thanks for this template! It's a nice wallmount for the echo. Could you add a little orientation dot which is flush to some point on the echo? And the hole for the ports is placed a little bit to low.

Hey HaselnuesseTo,

Thanks for the feedback. I was looking to update this remix even further, especially the cable hole being too low. Can you explain adding an orientation dot to the design - I am not sure what you mean?

Cheers,

Steve

Printed great on my Prusa i3 MK2! tight fit did require light sanding as noted. I'm not sure if I will be able to get them back out of I ever decide to move them; may need to use a screwdriver in one of the slots.

I used standard U.S. wood screws to mount. they are a bit larger than the holes in the design. I just inserted the screw prior to mounting and spun the screw to friction melt the plastic till it sat flush; worked surprisingly well.

it would also look slightly nicer with a fillet on the outside of the top.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback endar, much appreciated! Don't forget to upload your images of the mount as a "Make" for this Thing! Like the idea for a fillet on the outside, would help make it look less chunky!

Cheers,

Steve
