Makerbot Prints iPod Docks

Sure, there are thousands of iPod docks out there, but how many of them were printed out on somebody’s desktop? Not many, I bet. This unusual dock was rendered using a MakerBot desktop 3D printer.

Will Langford from BotMade used his desktop MakerBot CNC to create this iPod/iPhone charging dock. The dock was made by building a 3D model on his computer, then allowing MakerBot to print out thin layers of plastic stacked on top of each other. The plastic snaps onto a block of sturdy plywood for stability.

You’ll still need to provide your own iPod charging cable, but the dock can be purchased over on Etsy for $23 (USD). Or you can build your own MakerBot and crank out your own 3D creations with some of the models over at Thingiverse.
