3D model description

I have an Echo Dot in my bedroom but the normal orientation makes it difficult to hear requests. This device hangs the Dot upside down above the bed so that it can clearly hear what is said.

It has an inbuilt cable channel and can be fixed to the wall with a pair of 20mm wide removable double-sided pads. It prints in two parts: the wall-mounted yoke and the gimbal clip which clip together easily and firmly, although still allowing the dot to rotate if, say, the wall is not vertical.

Slide the Dot into the gimbal first. There is a small lip around the bottom edge holds the Dot in place without obscuring the light ring. It is a tight fit and needs to be coaxed into place. Once in the gimbal, clip the assembly into the yoke and turn gently to confirm that it's located properly.

EDIT (19-09-18)
I have uploaded a second bracket which can fix to the wall with a larger surface area and then the mount slides into it. You may find it useful


3D printing settings

PLA is fine for printing these. Print the Yoke with the flat (top) downwards - needs no support. The Gimbal prints with the base downwards and also needs no support. No brim should be needed.

I printed the Yoke at 0.2mm and the gimbal at 0.1.

I am very much an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to designing. My designs tend to have two things in common

1) They serve a purpose. I like to design functional objects which have a real-world use. 3D printing for art is fine, but it's its real-world application which will take the technology forward
2) Wherever possible I design to be easy to print and try to eschew supports or complex printing; modifying the design where necessary and possible to achieve this.
