WaveGuide (an iPhone 5 Dock - 30 Degree Incline)

3D printed in black nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
Product Description
Item Description

This iPhone 5 dock combines the perfect blend price and design while remaining a functional and effective dock. Simply string your new Lightning cable through the hole in the back and plug in your iPhone. From there, relax as your sounds are projected through the specially designed WaveGuide. This dock will go best with the Alumide construction but will also work with any of the plastics. Enjoy!


After some preliminary views of the WaveGuide and some trial and error, we have found the plastic to be very thin and in some spots "flimsy." To improve or cancel this flismy or lightweight feel we have tested hot glue inside the shelled parts of the dock and found that hot glue will NOT melt the plastic meaning it is 100% SAFE to use as a filer material (only on the strong and flexible plastics; or any other materials with a heat capacity of 172 D). If you want your dock to have a little extra weight, just squirt some hot glue around the Lightning Port hole and allow to cool. This process will make the dock seem more sturdy and resilient.


10/12/12: Prototype has been shipped and will arrive in the mail shortly at which point I will test for functionallity of the Lightning Cable port .

10/17/12: Prototype received. Error with hole size and depth on front half, will redesign and product should be good to go. Purchasing will be unavailable until product redesign is complete.

10/17/2012: File updated. Added a smaller Lighting Port, larger WaveGuide, reduced volume to compensate for added thicknesses and to add strength, added underside wire clip, improved Lightnig Port underside cutout.
