Don't know where to put your spare head for your turntable? Your Jack adapter? Don't wonder anymore, this is the box you were waiting for.

The Deskshell is a stunning multi-purpose container for your audio items. It will sit wonderfully near your turntable as it mimic the headshell used in them. No container specifically designed for turntable lovers exist on the market, it's at the same time useful and novel!
Headshell, Cardridge, wires, adaptor, screw... So many small things that can be lose quite easily and you never know where to store them. With this gorgeous box that will sit next to your audio system, problem solved!
Your precious head need a safe place? Put some foam in the container to secure it: simple as that!
Use the removable nameplate to remember what you stored in it, like one for your spare headshell, one for your cardridge and so on!
Want to customize it even further more? Simply change the front logo if you want!

See Instructions for extended how to.
And show us what color scheme you choose! : )

Some model are not there, you can find more here: https://www.cgtrader.com/M600



The Deskshell is made of 10 parts and can be print within a 10x10x12.5cm area.
Printability is EXCELLENT, 90% of the parts doesn't require support material. Only the "container" part may need it.

Included 4 STL files that will fit small printer like the Replicator Mini (10x10x12.5). Just to make your print easier without the hassle to move them to fit ;)

Supplied two extras logos: the Makerbot one and a blank.


If you have a big printer that can hold all the parts, it will take you around 5 hours.
If you have a smaller printer, print time is around:

  • Base: 50min
  • Arm: 67min
  • Container: 96min
  • Cover: 27min
  • Nameplate: 20min
  • Logo: 14min
  • Top plate: 10min
  • Screw: 13min
  • Connector (2): 6min
    // Simulated with 0.3mm layer on Simplify3D


Once all the part is printed, the building should be straight forward as most the part simply snap together. You only need to glue a "Connector" on the base and it's optional!

Remember, parts with "Replicator_MINISpecific" is just files with placement of the part that fit small printer, if you print them one by one, do not print those four files!

Replicator_MINI_Specific_Deskshell_1 : Base
Replicator_MINI_Specific_Deskshell_2 : Arm, Nameplate
Replicator_MINI_Specific_Deskshell_3 : Container, Cover
Replicator_MINI_Specific_Deskshell_4 : Logo, Top plate, Screw, 2 Connector
With everything by default (0.2mm, 10%, raft) on the Mini, estimated time is:
1 - 114min (21.04g)
2 - 175min (30.14g)
3 - 276min (46.27g)
4 - 81min (14.93g)

CONNECTOR (Optional)

The connector is used to insert wire to finish the style. I use a random solid core wire (3mm diameter), cut it in 4 pieces of around 4cm.
Take out the inner core (metal) of it and only keep the sleeve (plastic), it will make the fitting much easier!

Insert them on the connector not glued and push them flush to the base, glueing them is recommended but not needed. Once the glue is dry, bore the 4 holes on the connector glued on the base just enough for the wire sleeve to slide easier than in the one you just put. It ease the installation and the removing later on.

Take the container, insert the connector with wire in his bottom place, it should snap it. Insert the free wire to the connector on the base and voila!

The "Connector 2" is exactly the same as the first but it's just a reminder that you have to print two of them!

Yes you're missing something. Like the fact that if you do a search for "doll house" the first 4 designs that come up all have more downloads than your single contribution. This includes the doll-house toilet (over 1000 downloads) versus the 20 for your cell phone dock (YAWN)

I am sure if I could be bothered to look at the other results it would be the same.

"The community" has spoken.

touche... even though the cell phone dock I submitted has only been online for a few days I wouldn't say the community has spoken... Just because #jamesrf spends his time trolling the internet for doll house shiitter designs doesn't make that the choice of the community. That being said I was just confused about the award being designated to this for best design?? However I didnt realize that it was a challenge for little kids which I discovered subsequently by the picture of the poster so I would like to publicly apologize for my trolling and I would never want to discourage the young minds from posting their creative skills in a public venue. Because obviously a public post of a personal preference should never be commented on in a negative light.... So anyway, #M600 keep up the good work, I am sure you will be a great designer one day!

While I applaud your willingness to respond and your apology is a nice touch, I see that you still miss the point by somehow persisting in your belief that the opinion of one person represents the community. Just as your apparent dislike of dolls furniture (it's a pity you deleted your original post - breaks the flow of the discussion) is irrelevant to "the community" so is the fact that I spend " time trolling the internet for doll house shiitter designs" as you so eloquently put it. It's the 1000 plus downloads of the design that are relevant (or the many thousands of downloads of other miniature designs). I would go so far as saying that the mere fact that someone feels strongly enough about something to design it is reason enough that it should be welcome here, whether anyone downloads it or not. I am afraid the designer of that particular piece will have to do without my download for a while anyway, since my model building is, at this time, confined to historical periods that rarely require indoor plumbing. As for your cell phone dock - I apologise for my premature response to it's reception, I wasn't aware that it was so recently released. I am sure it will make a great contribution at the intersection of the Nexus and 3D-printing communities. I wish you great success with it. In fact, as a token of my goodwill you will see that your download total has now risen by one. (make that two I may have downloaded it twice - old age is a terrible thing.) I must also thank you for pointing out all the doll-house furniture on the site - I have a daughter nearing doll-house age and this is going to be an invaluable resource and there are some truly talented designers here. Some even apparently make their living designing these things - incredible - it seems the love of doll-house furniture is quite widespread (excluding present company of course).
