After speaking with my friends over at Wearable Today, I was inspired to design a Qi charging dock for the Moto 360 smartwatch. I worked on it on and off for about a week and finally came up with a sweet 3D Printable Moto 360 dock. Because why pay $40 for an extra charger? When you can 3D print your own and buy a cheap Qi charging module for it, all for under $20.

They featured this on the February 16th Episode of Wearable Today. The files for 3D printing this dock can be found on Thingiverse at this link:

There are 5 files to print. 4 of which are very straight forward prints. The only on that needs specific instruction is the ChargeStandTop.stl file. There is a 45 degree notch on the bottom of that part which should be the part on the build plate. This way the part prints at a 45 degree angle. The 45 degree angle cuts down immensely on the amount of supports needed. Which brings me to my next point, a raft (to help keep the print from toppling over) and supports are needed to print this. The ChargeStandMain.stl also needs supports.

The Qi Charging module can be bought (for $8) here:

If you don't have a 3D Printer you can have these printed and shipped to you on our 3D Hub at:

Also featured on that show were these awesome Moto 360 Faceplates:

As said above we can print this or any other files and ship them for you over on our 3D Hub at:

Happy Printing.
