If there's one gadget out there with the fewest accessories, it's Google Glass. Not only has the original Explorer version ceased being sold, but at £1000 per headset, there aren't going to be that many out there at all.
That's where 3D printing comes in. When there's little sense in a large company mass producing add ons for such a niche product, designing and printing your own and sharing it online, is ideal.
While intended to be worn all day long, you have to take the Glass off sometime - say, while sleeping, taking a shower, or erm.. well I'd wear it the rest of the time, if I had one.
Enter the Google Glass Stand by Rog0978, something we printed for a customer who needed one for their company's development model. We printed it out of Faberdashery's Crystal Clear, with a support structure for the overhanging arm.
While we normally try and print without supports, this is a great example of when that's just not possible, and just how nicely supports can come out. It was tempting to leave them on!
This part took around 3 hours to print at a cost of £27, pretty cheap compared to the device it supports!
