People are 3D printing their own Nintendo Switch docks


The cat’s out of the bag on this one. No matter how careful you are with your Nintendo Switch, the dock that comes with the device is capable of scratching the plastic on the screen. You can get a screen protector to help prevent that, but most of Amazon is back-ordered until the middle of the month.

In the meantime, some clever people on reddit have posted their solutions to solving the dock issues.

This 3D printed dock takes the small motherboard out of the dock and mounts it inside a a dock that doesn’t cover the front of the screen when the Switch is actually docked. It seems shocking that Nintendo couldn’t think of this idea themselves. They may have even saved enough plastic to only charge everyone $60 for the dock, too.
