Simple 45° stands for the joycon slots on the Nintendo Switch. Makes it easier and more comfortable to play on a table than the built in stand. For fun print one in red and one in blue!

The V2 is slimmer for a slightly quicker print and more portable than the original.

V3 is an attempt for making it large and tall enough to accommodate a charging cable at the bottom...untested please let me know if it works.

Printer Brand:












In simplify 3D print with support structure to support the tongue that goes into the slot.

How I Designed This

Using Tinkercad and a set of Calipers...being careful not to scratch any part of the switch.

do you have a design where they print flat. my printer fails on the rails as is so all i get are the L shape but no rail

I tried the v3 two times now and for some reason the right leg wont fit correctly. Its just way too loose and doesnt hold up the Switch. Maybe its the rails on the unit itself. Has anyone else ran into this problem?

Printed the v3 slim via an online service, fits well ,but could used slightly more rounded corner ( I might used a file to round them myself afterward )

sooo does the cord fit in at the bottom for V3?

Okay, so here is my idea. Rather than having one on each rail, what if you instead put one on the left rail, and used the kick-stand on the switch for the right side. I'm currently working on this, but I'm not great at cad so we'll see how it turns out...

Hello, what are the dimensions of V3in mm?

I want to know the same thing. My 3D printers in school are very strange and don't print stl files. You have to convert them to some weird file type and it never ends up being the correct size because it scales it very strangely.

FYI to my knowledge no 3d printer prints straight STL files, they have to go through a slicer like Cura which creates a gcode-file which the printer can use.

This is what 3d printing is all about: Simple, easy, functional, and incredibly cheaper than what is commercially avaliable.

I have yet to print this (tomorrow, I will). However, any chance you could do a version that is a touch longer in both lengths?

I've printed the slim version and they are too loose : the pieces slide out of the rails. I'll try to add some rubber-ish thing to them...

Just ordered the V3 one to print, this is so simple yet brilliant, I don't own a 3d printer myself, hope it turns out well. I hope you can sell this design for mass production, good luck!

Is there a way to lay the V2 down flat?

Nice I've been working on a similar concept, though I'm having troubles as I'd like to have it raise slightly to allow for charging.

i would like that a lot

I wonder how difficult it'd be to incorporate a hinge there to make it adjustable?

What are the covers on your joy-cons? I keep seeing them all over thingiverse but can't find them anywhere else online

Can buy those out and about not 3D printed

Great idea for the stand, by the way! nice and compact, and looks sleek!

Might be nice if this supported having the power plugged in at the same time.

Plenty others out there that do that was going for something small and simple ;)
