The Smash logo is a nice representation of the Switch era
I’ve always toyed with the idea of getting a stronger or steel Switch dock, and this custom creation makes pulling the trigger a whole lot easier.
Made by Reddit’s Destroyer1102, the dock was made from steel for a class prototype. Destroyer1102 says the pattern was a “surprise” and ended up turning out better than expected after brushing off the rust. So, the elephant in the room! Many people wondered how the steel didn’t damage the Switch’s screen, to which the creator replied, “the screen is actually unharmed since the dock is inside the metal casing.”
Another crafter suggested putting vents on the back to plan for potential heat issues with the Switch when playing while docked. Someone else suggested leaving the Smash logo on. There’s so much potential when it comes to custom creations like this, especially with 3D printing being so much more accessible.
As a reminder, if you’re in the dock market, Nintendo now sells the Switch OLED dock with the LAN port separately. Plus, there are periodically a ton of special edition docks on eBay, in case you need them for another room in your house. I ended up getting three of these through various means of Switch ownership!
