Tired of that unsightly black dock on top of your table?
Want something more portable to take with you when you travel?
This converts the dock components into a much smaller dongle form factor.
It fits into the switch directly or you can use a USB-C coupler like this one as I do to connect your Switch via a cable, hiding the "dock" with your other A/V equipment.
I have uploaded a "final" version of the dongle that fixed a lot of the issues with the first draft: it's smaller, laid out better, and includes pegs for connecting the two halves. I tightened tolerances a lot this time around, so expect to file some of the internal faces.
I've accomplished what I set out to do with the latest version so I probably won't be printing anymore but please comment if you have any suggestions for improvement!
Depending on your print, the pieces' fit will vary.
There are two versions uploaded:
- The "usbc" and "usbc-top" is loose fitting and does not have connecting pegs. I don't recommend printing this version but I've left the files up.
- The "final-top" and "final-bot" is very tight with connecting pegs but will probably need some internal filing. I recommend this version.
Putting it together
The new v2 files I've uploaded include pegs to help with assembly.
Depending on your print quality, you'll need to file the pegs down to get a smooth fit.
However, filing the internal faces won't affect the look!
