Hueblog: Socket holder for the Hue Bridge from the 3D printer

Socket holder for the Hue Bridge from the 3D printer

For a little more organisation

Don't you store the Hue Bridge somewhere deep in the cupboard or hide it somewhere else? If you are still looking for the perfect place for your control centre, I might have the perfect solution for you. On the 3D printer platform Thingiverse a user presented an interesting mount for the Hue Bridge.

As you can also see on the pictures in the project, he thought of just about everything. First of all, there is a holder for the power supply unit, plus two hooks to wind up the long power cable. This is then led out through a small gap and can be plugged into the bridge. The bridge hangs on the outside of the holder and is easily accessible to read the status LEDs or to press the button of the bridge.

But the designer has also thought of other important details. For example, the power supply unit is not located in the middle, but on the side. This ensures that when used in a double wall socket, the second socket is not occupied.

Unfortunately, I don't know much about 3D printing, but I really like this little solution. And maybe it's something you can reproduce yourself. How the result looks like, you can see in the following video.
