Under Desk Headphone Hook

Introduction: Under Desk Headphone Hook

About: My name is Jordan Palka. I am a senior in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. I am the former President of the Mines Maker Society, a student club that runs a makerspace ...

This inscrutable gives a general overview of the design, printing and instillation process for a simple desk mounted headphone stand.

I wanted to mount my headphones under my desk so they were out of the way when not in use. I was shocked when I couldn't find an STL online, so I modeled my own. My files are included in the next step.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Design + CAD

I have included my SOLIDWORKS and stl files for this part. I have also included a mostly dimensioned drawing so you can recreate this part if you want to make changes and don't have SOLIDWORKS.

Design Note:

Make sure you think about screw holes when designing a part. The first iteration did not have the screwdriver hole (highlighted in the 2nd image). I had one screw in my desk and realized that I couldn't install it.

Step 2: 3D Print

I printed this part on a Lulzbot Mini in ABS and didn't have any problems.

Step 3: "Finish"

Remove brim and file / sand any rough edges.

Step 4: Install

The part is designed to be installed with 2 #6 x 5/8" screws

Just screw it into the bottom of your desk!

This is a great idea. Even if you weren't using the SOLIDWORKS and stl. files portion there are a million other ways you can make this work. Thank you for the inspiration and I will be sure to utilized before the end of the wired headphone!
