Summary

Mount your new Google Home Mini to the wall without seeing the mount!

Tiny, but strong mount screws to the wall where the power cord connects to the Mini. The mini sits perfectly flush to the wall and it works upside down.

  1. Print
  2. Screw to wall - any common screw should be fine
  3. Feed power cord through bottom hole
  4. Connect power to Mini
  5. Sit Mini on mount.

-V4 - added more support for cable
-Finite element analysis indicates the mount will bend less than .03mm - so not at all.
-Mini is held tightly to the wall (it wont fall forward even if you tug on it).

Can you tell me which material I should pick http://imageshack.com/i/pohfpm35p?
I totally new to 3D printing

PLA is what I used. It is probably the most common material. Good luck and welcome to the 3d printing community!

Are you kidding me! what a brilliant simple design. Everything else out there unnecessarily wraps around to the front with some version of a talon. And who does a FEA on their thingiverse design, guy did a stellar job. I have 4 of these mini's and i hung them all!

Works like a charm. Fit around plug is perfect. Thanks!

it looks like its gonna fall down when its just sitting on that ramp like mount what holds it from falling down i cant really see any pictures of the mount in action

There are several images with the Google home mini attached to the wall using the mount. It is tiny. It utilizes the firm connection of the USB. As you can see in the second image, the mount can hold it even when it's upside down.

Does the mini just rest on this? How secure is it? It looks like it could fall forward pretty easily.

The mini only weighs 6.1oz. The mount/power cable keeps it securely on the wall. I added a picture of the finite element analysis i did on the mount - it wont bend.

It only takes about 50cm of filament so give it a try and let me know what you think!

Fair enough. I guess I was just wondering if the mini was fixed in place somehow. I assume you can just pull it off (as long as there is enough slack in the cord).

You are correct in your assumption. The power cable has a holding strength of 25oz (per google). You can take the Mini off the mount by pulling straight up. Otherwise it will not lean forward or fall off the stand.

Verified: If you mount it upside down (put the mount above mini) the mini will stay in place.

Wow... awesome, thanks!
