I re-mixed this for a Gen3 Dot and would appreciate comments, criticism, or suggestions.
This is a VERY simple Echo Dot decoration. It is a RE-MIX of one of my v2 designs and is very easy to make because it only has 3 parts to print and they print without supports. It needs very little finish and can be utilized fresh off the printer if printed in black PLA. This is a very quick print suitable for a present.
These parts are VERY simple to assemble, the ear has a tab on it that slots into the Echo Dot holder. Print it twice and slot them in. They are designed with a slightly hollow face, this should be on the forward facing side when mounted.
Then the outer Echo Dot holder is fitted to the base using lengths of filament and it's not picky as most mice aren't. It will utilize ABS, PLA, Petg, or what ever you happen to have. The holes in the base will accommodate pieces of filament of 1" (25mm) or so of filament with the one over the USB slot being slightly shorter. USB slot to the rear! LOL! I suggest you press filament into the holes and then trim it so that only a mm (1/16 - 1/8") or so protrudes. It can NOT be longer as it will stick up into the center of the ring and prevent the dot from easily centering in the holding ring.
The "BASE" has a slot that should be to the rear and is where the USB cable will exit the model.
USB cable (dot end) through the base, then plugs into the Dot AFTER it is inserted into the head ring. Firmly seat it. Then settle the base to the ring and there should be enough room to angle the USB cable out the slot.
Once assembled this gives a pretty good impression of the outline of a mouse! LOL! If you like and enjoy it, let me know through the comments. Likewise if you hate it or if there is an adjustment needed, please let me know..
0.2 layer height. No support.
I used 10% because it doesn't need a lot of strength just to hold a Dot up.
I used CURA 3.6. No Supports. Fuzzy skin could be used, but the Ear tabs might need a little filing. Please have fun printing this!
