Galaxy Tab Dock

3D model description

Yo,

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9" or 10.1" tablet?? If so here is a full featured docking solution!

At work we bought a fleet of 8.9 LTE Tab's and I immediately began creation of a dock that would work with a naked unit or with a TPU case on it.

Each dock has an adapter locking center channel and cable tunnel for the 30 pin power/data cable. I included 2 40mm unique dowels so you can easily slide the unit apart for addition and removal of the cable. The unit holds your Tab at a 20 degree angle perfect for desk usage or next to the bed. I widened the stance with the rear wedges so you can rest assured there will be no tipping even if your a hardcore screen basher. There are also dual front and rear speaker ports so you can mega jam even when docked with the 8.9!

I have uploaded 2 different solutions that work on each tablet variant (not physically tested on the 10.1 but the qualifying dimensions are the same):

1.) A standard sized dock that minimizes plastic used and print duration. This dock allows you to grip the side of the Tab in the dock and easily use a thumb keyboard without pulling it from the dock!

2.) A jumbo dock that goes almost to the edge of the 8.9 and looks like a dock that you might buy at a retailer (or at least I like to think so...).

All docks pictured with logos were on my beta units only and all uploaded docks are free of any branding.

I have also attached my Sketchup master for your modding pleasures.
