- Added switchrest-complete.stl (all components ready to print in a single stl file, locks already scaled to fit)
- Added locking mechanism to secure switch
- Added switchrest-lock.stl (locking mechanism)
- Modified switchrest-left and switchrest-right brackets
- Added switchrest-complete.stl (all components ready to print in a single stl file)
Scale the locks down to 96% in your slicer and eliminate the need of post processing.
I highly suggest you do some post processing on the locks either sand or file the portion that locks into the rails before using this or you will have a hard time getting them off and possibly break the side rails.
Once you can insert/remove the locks easily proceed to insert your Switch.
With these last changes I consider this completed and I don't plan on making further edits, suggestions are always welcomed.
- Added SwitchRest and Switch logos
- Added angled bracket so switch air intake has breathing room to prevent overheating
- Added correct printing position for all STLs
- Added SwitchRest-Left-Right STL contains both brackets ready to print in correct position
I made this so my daughter could play the Nintendo Switch mounted to my cars headrest while we do road trips.
This is my initial prototype which I made in 1 hour so I might be making a few revisions but this works really well, we recently used it on a 4 hour trip and it withstood all the bumps you normally have when driving on the highway at 70mph.
I suggest you do a solid infill for best durability since these can be a bit tight when placing them on the switch and need a decent amount of force to be removed.
Import each stl individually or import switchrest-complete.stl which includes both rails and 2 locks.
Print with 100% infill so it doesn't break when inserting/removing the locks.
Avoid having to file the locks if you scale them down to 96% in your slicer.
