Justin Shook shared on Thingiverse:

Gearhead iPhone 5/6 Dock, Spiral Bevel Gear 51T/17T, 3:1 Ratio

This is a fanciful, yet functional rotating, spiral bevel gear, iPhone dock. Yep, that’s a mouthful. This is the fun and ultimate EngiNerdy desk piece. Anyway, I’m an engineer by trade, so I’m a gear head. This dock was designed for the OEM Apple lightning cord to route through the rotational shaft/base. This is to prevent binding when the assembly rotates. I used GearTrax CAD software to create a perfect spiral bevel gear mesh at a 3:1 reduction. I printed this in eSun white PLA on an Ultimaker 2 Extended:

Like this design? Want me to make a custom design/prototype for you? How about a finished 3D printed project sent right to you in the mail? All of this and more can be found at my website or my shop on Etsy!

Thanks!

Ext. Temp: 210C

Brim for adhesion of the gears

No Supports Needed

The gears should be 100% fill to prevent any delimitation under gear loading. The shaft is press fit, so use a rubber hammer and a socket over the shaft to assemble to the pinion. The bolts used to attach the dock to the 51 tooth gear are M4x20mm Hex bolts that you can buy at any regular hardware store down the street. Leave a comment if you have any questions or concerns? Have fun!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
