Okay finally got around to updating the size of the charger hole. When I designed V2, I didn't account for the expansion of the PLA material once it's printer. You have to allot for roughly the same layer thickness extra, so that everything fits. So now I've increased the size of the back charger hole by 15-20% so we should be totally good to go. I'm going to finalize this file. Please let me know any feedback, comments, or ideas for upgrades.

Just uploaded a real photo of the dock, holding my 4 juice pods and the JUUL vape itself. It actually looks and performs REALLY well! I'm super happy with it, with the exception of the charger hole... I'm going to keep this as a work in progress for now, until I fix the size of the charger hole in the back. For now, imagine you can't use the charging feature until I fix the height of the hole. Everything else works great though, so feel free to print and give it a try. It's pretty compact, light, and easy to carry around from room to room.
So yesterday I printed this file for the first time. I thought I had my measurements all right, but I guess I jumped the gun on uploading to Thingiverse. After it had finished printing, I realized the pods would fit, but the actual vape itself didn't fit... neither did it's charger. lol
So I just whipped up a modified version. Because I had to scale the triangle out a bit on the Y axis (to make the charger fit) I was able to add a bunch more pod holders. Now the dock can hold 26 pods instead of 18, and it should work perfectly with the charger and the vape itself.
I'm currently printing the new version. Will be done in about 5 hours. I will post the result as soon as I can. For now, the mockups and the STL file are the new version (V2) but the actual printed photos are still showing the original (until V2 is done printing, then I will replace them.)
My JUUL Vape arrived today and while it was charging I started sketching my first charging dock/pod display. Designed it in Tinkercad (LOVE!)
This will hold and showcase up to 18 pods as well as the vape itself. I've also created an opening in the back that will allow you to slide in the charger dock. So in other words, this dock can also be a charging dock when you feel like it - or always.
I really like the triangular design, I feel like it would make a nice addition to a desk, counter, bookshelf, entertainment unit, drawer etc. Print a couple and put them in different places!
Let me know how you would upgrade this. I'll probably tweak it as I use it.
This is a super easy print. Don't even need any build plate adhesion. Version 1 didn't need supports, but V2 does, so make sure to add supports in the gap where the charger would fit (in the back.)
Follow your Filament specifications in terms of nozzle and build plate temperatures.
Otherwise, enjoy! And congrats on trying to quit smoking :)
