A docking station/charging cradle for OnePlus 5. Fits the phone without a case, and a regular Nexus 6P USB-C cable. You'll have to enlarge the design if you have a case on. Furthermore, adjust the size of the USB connector holes if the connector differs in size (for instance, the red USB-C connector that comes with the phone is too short, and will go too deep into the stand with the provided dimensions). The included Fusion 360 file is parametrized, so you should be able to change the various dimensions via the "Modify Parameters" table. The file also has a few steps at the end of the timeline, to generate a slice of the model in order to print out a small prototype to test the size of the USB-C holes.
Had a problem with one of the corners at the bottom layer. Resolved it by changing the Shell settings in Cura, forcing it to make the wall 3 layers thick (instead of the default 2). I think it's called perimeters count in S3D.
Infill could probably be less than 20%.
- Insert the USB-C cable through the opening in the bottom.
- Once completely inserted, turn the connector 90 degrees, and push it back into the stand. It should fit snugly, and go exactly as far as needed.
- Pass the cable through the groove in the bottom of the stand.
I took the idea from Normand's OnePlus 2 stand. Started from scratch, imitating the original design, and using OnePlus 5 dimensions. If you look at the attached Fusion 360 file, you'll find that the dimensions in the sketch are a little bigger than the published phone dimensions - that's on purpose, to loosen tolerances, and avoid having the phone stuck.
One could create a hole below the 3.5mm jack, for connecting headphones/speakers through the cradle.
I haven't implemented it since I don't need it, but one could add higher notches in the front, to allow the use in landscape orientation.
- The speaker amplification is unbalanced - it does almost nothing for the bass, while significantly amplifying treble. I'm not a sound engineer, so I don't know how to design the inner tube to improve sound quality. Suggestions are welcome.
