Custom 3D Printed Mount for Fire Tablet (2015)

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.
