So not only would I get an awesome 3d printed dock but a nice fun puzzle to put together right after the printing. This wouldn't be included if I had access to a larger printer, but A) those printers are on the order of 10x the price of my printer, and B) it actually lends itself to be molded into several parts anyways, so breaking it down was counter intuitive.
