*dusts thread*

ok i have to ask to the lucky owners of cradles....

¿how much did it cost yours?

i'm asking because as some of you already know i'm making a cradle to sell on shapeways, and i want to make sure that at least i got it cheap enough to make it worth, since compared to the original this one doesnt have any gimmicks besides looking pretty....

It's very hard to find cradles these days, so it would probably be worth it at any price (when I bought mine 3 years ago, the price was 2000 yen.)

If you need a gimmick, I suggest a removeable bottom and a mousehole large enough to run a cord through. Then you could put things like a flash drive or similar inside it and run a USB cable out of it.

2000 yen? that's a steal!... and i just found on ebay one for $72... which is still uber-cheap compared to what shapeways is telling me for my model... *sigh*

time to keep on modeling i guess

New user here so first off, sorry if bumping older threads is bad etiquette here.

Anyway, any pictures of the standard cradle? I can find plenty of pictures of the white & black set, but none of the standard single cradle. I'm assuming it's the same thing, just in a different color. Trying to decide if I want to get one with Rakuten's new user coupon and if the color goes well with any of mine, that might be the deciding factor.

The original cradle is the same as the white cradle in the two-pack, the black cradle in the two-pack just has the colors swapped, iirc.

First off, sorry for digging this grave.
I just ordered a Cradle on Amazon for eye-watering CA$171 (include shipping). But anyway, im gonna make it more useful than just a LED lamp.
I'm planning on putting a 250GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD (cost me CA$135) into the cradle, and mod the LED into a status indicator.
I'll post pictures here (or somewhere else) after im done... it should not be a hard job. :strarf:
