I have been enamored by the slew of Home Assistant Dashboard mounts lately and have wanted to make one for a while. I saw that the newer Amazon tablets have commercially available options, but my old 2015 Fire Tablet was on its own.
I decided to make one using my Creality Ender 3 Pro. I designed one with screw holes to fit a standard 2-gang box, an opening for the cord to exit posteriorly, and cut outs for the tablet’s buttons.
Unfortunately, each one took about a day to print and I went through several drafts, slowly tweaking the design to fit perfectly. This slow process probably took weeks, but I finally came up with something that seemed to work.
Attaching a tablet to a wall is not hard, but doing it in a way to hide the cords is definitely more challenging. I know that the standard way is to run power to a new gang box which is why I designed my tablet frame to fit that scenario. However, I realized that I could probably do something a little simpler.
I just ran the USB cable behind the wall and made a seperate opening towards the floor so that at least, the cable would be hidden and not dangling from the tablet.
And here is the final result:
In case anyone is interested, here is a copy of my STL file:
And finally, here is the cord I used and the brush wall plate:
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
