Everyone loves rockets and everyone loves Amazon Echo (http://amzn.to/2unyK3e) so we figured here at www.DIY3DTech.com why not bring the two together! So it doesn't matter if you have just the dot or the tube as this design can adapt to both and might even be better than SpaceX, well sort of!. However if nothing else this piece is conversation starter for sure everyone is going to be asking you to print one for them after they see yours so stock up on filament quick!
In addition it also offers many finishing options should you (or significant other) not like the 3D printed look (which my wife doesn't) as you can use a stone spray paint such this (http://amzn.to/2ue7gyw) which my wife even approves of or a lighter textured version such as this (http://amzn.to/2uewehx) to cover the layer lines. Yet every morning when you grab that first cup of coffee and ask Alexa for a flash briefing, you will smile seeing perched atop of that mighty Retro-Rocket which YOU printed!

Any 200mm x 200mm printer will work
So this things assembles via pressure fit and while you can glue it, it is not required however to achieve this the interlocking slots are very tight and depending on the plastic you use may require some clean up with a bur tool (such as this: http://amzn.to/2uek6gg) as well as a small file set (such as this: http://amzn.to/2uexS2u) to achieve the required fit of the parts. Other wise the printing pretty straight forward!
