Apple Watch stand inspired by the "Thing" from the Addams Family. The puck can be inserted without the need of glue.

This model can be printed without support, but using a brim of 16-32 lines is advised.
To remove the puck, insert a pencil or pen in the palm of the hand and gently push the puck out.

This looks awesome. I am going to print one for my son, and the colour he wants I only have in ABS. Has anyone prnted it in ABS? Do you need to scale it up a bit to allow for shrinkage?

Hi! I did not print this in ABS, but worst case scenario you need to widen the puck holder a bit. You could also do a quick test print and stop after you printed the puck part and try it out ;) Good luck!

Indeed I did a set print and it turned out that with the ABS I was using it didn't need to be scaled at all - fit perfectly.

Cool! I'm glad it worked out!

Good morning. So I just finished printing this and everything went great minus the nails. I'm not sure the reason but when I slice this in S3D the nails aren't attached by more than a little bit of contact at the bottom of each nail bed. I tried both he STL and the OBJ and they both render the same. I ended up losing my thumb nail due to this issue. I was wondering if you had a file that the nail was part of the file so they don't fall off during the print?

Hi! I did not encounter this problem with Cura, but nevertheless I've updated the model. The gap & empty space behind the nails are gone now! ;)

I had the same issue with S3D. I pulled the nails off (didn't want to redo a 19hr print!) and then used the 'separate connected surfaces' in S3D. This then allowed me to reprint just the nails. Once done I will carefully glue them on!

You can run it through MeshMixer (or 3D Builder) and do a Merge operation.

Absolutely Fantastic! Printed one in Sunulu "Skin" PLA (apparently, the Chinese are not PC), and my wife PROMPTLY took it away from me.

She says this is the best thing we've ever printed. Considering the number of things she's asked for... that's saying a lot!!

This is really great MikeVR.
I've just printed it, even though I don't have an Apple watch.

EDIT: My son and daughter-in-law now have Things to hold their Apple watches while charging. It is very handy to have a spare wrist or two around the house;) Everyone I have shown these to has been very impressed. My wife uses a couple to pose her knitting on.
Well done MikeVR :)

Hi dendad51! Thank you for your kind words! :D I have added an "Au naturel" version of the hand that does not have the Apple Watch charger imbedded in the model. That way everyone can enjoy the spare wrists! ;D

could you upload it in .stl format? my printer cant open .obj... Thanks and awesome model!

Hi! I have added a STL version to the download, enjoy!

Open in 3d builder (Windows 10) and export in stl (the unit is mm)

How did you model the hand?

at what scale do you print this

Hey! It should be scaled 10 times, but I updated the model. It now has the right scale and rotation.

I just printed this on my Prusa MK3. It has the be the best print I’ve ever done. It looks like it’s injection molded. Seriously. It is baby smooth! Good job.

This is very nice. Unfortunately, a 38mm watch with the small strap barely squeezes on.

Any chance you could make one with a smaller wrist? At the same time, I think it would be great if it were a woman's hand.
