Step 1: Making the Base and the Sphere
Step 2: Making the Hole
Align the torus so that it goes in the indent cleanly, meaning that then torus does not touch the sides of the indent. Look at the main picture for help with this part. Then, subtract the torus from the sphere to make a hole for where your charging cable will go.
Step 3: Making the Back Stand and Adding Color
Tilt the square back to match the angle of the indent so that the the bottom of the indent to the top of the square is one straight line. Then, slightly move the square down in to the sphere. Now that you are done with the body of the charging dock you can add some color! Add whatever colors you want to make the charging dock personal to you!
In the future, I would add these things:
-A notch or something to keep the charging cable up through the hole
-More support for the phone while it's charging
