A not so obvious solution may be to make the holder a REAR entry. Just make a basket to keep the Echo from falling out the front. Set the Echo inside and no pressure is needed to keep it taught. Gravity does that. It won't fall out the back as it is against the wall!

Hi, I like the design, but the tabs (fingers) broken. Would you consider adding a small architectural feature to improve the strength? For example, along the vertical edge of the finger, add a round column with a diameter >2x the thickness of the finger. This will improve the strength significantly. It will however make inserting the Echo more difficult. It may require enlarging the major circle diameter.

Thanks for doing all the work of designing it.

My 2 tabs broke immediately as well. I am going to glue them, but I believe this needs a revision

The tolerances are way too tight. The 2 tabs broke off immediately. I may make another one that is 5- 10% larger, if I can get my power source out of the holder.

Beautiful item! Unfortunately, the little tabs cracked for me as mentioned in some other comments. A slightly more robust design alteration to those tabs would probably be a good idea!

Does it fit the German poweradapter?

Yes. Fits perfect.

Perfect ! Would it be possible to make a second cover version with a hole where you can see the poweradapter thrue ? Would be great, cause the original amazon adapter looks great and i dont like to cover it....

I like this print, but the 2 fingers keep snapping off. Anyone else have this problem? I printed it twice and both times as soon as I try to put in the echo they snap.

It sounds to me like your print layer adhesion might be bad. I've only had them snap off once, when I accidentally dropped the whole thing from fairly high up, and I've put the Dot in and out of them many times.
I'd suggest trying to calibrate your extrusion rate (so when the printer believes it's extruding 100mm of filament, it really is 100mm), or trying a less brittle filament. (PLA can sometimes make brittle prints if it's absorbed too much moisture from the atmosphere before printing), or you could try printing in something less brittle (like a PLA+ using Natureworks 3D870, or PETG)
Hope this helps

very nice ! Thank you!

looks great, do you know if it will fit 1st Gen Dots?

I doubt it, but I don't have one to compare against. I do have some Gen2 echo dots so I could probably make a version to fit those if it'll help someone.
If you can make some accurate measurements of the gen1 dot (using calipers, and including exact position of every feature of the echo itself, and PSU) , I could try making one for that, but I have no way to test the fit

first, great work, i relay like the design.
it would be perfect if you could make a version for the gen. 2 model as well. Or if you could provide the step files, if would like to try it myself.

thanks for the kind answer. I think I try printing it first to see if it fits. If not, I might buy a new Dot :-)
