I finally broke down an got my own Nuvi so I don’t have to keep borrowing my wife’s.

Since it’s mine I figured why not mount it permanently in my truck. Rather than buying something online I made a simple 3D ball mount in Scad.

Download the code here.

It looks good on screen so I printed it. I hollowed it out for a bolt and tapered it to fit a flat head screw. I really like printing parts with all the details already there.

 

Just add a screw, nut, and fender washer…..

Sometimes its the simplest projects I like best……..
