One of the biggest gripes I have about the new Nintendo Switch is that the Cradle was meant to be set vertically on a table top. I imagine for most people, this becomes a pest as it will likely to interfere with the TV on a stand; especially for Samsung TVs, if you positioned on the right hand side of the TV, you'll likely block the little infrared sensor for the TV remote.

I set out to design a wall bracket to be mounted on the side of my TV stand. The design is pretty simple but I tried my best to accomplish the following:

  • Design a version for people with smaller print bed (see the small version)
  • Small Version: ideal for smaller printers, it leveraged the cradles hinges to minimize sliding (if you are paranoid, use some double sided tape)
  • Big Version: This one has added slide protection
  • Strength; I went with 12mm minimum on the base and for the sides, 15mm thick
  • Game Cartridge Storage; the small version holds 6 games; the large version holds 12

Since I am unfamiliar with the tensile strength of my print setting (and PLA plastic), I wanted to have an extra peace of mind, so I utilized some L-brackets to give more strength. The L-Brackets I had on hand were the free ones that comes with many IKEA furniture. The Switch is quite expensive, so please do this at your own risk!

I took lots of photos for your reference.

Doesn't Matter




I am not an expert on print settings, I printed with the "fast" print setting. I wanted some extra security so I attached two L-brackets to the back for a little more support.
