In my previous blog you could read how I made a proper wall mount for my Philips hue Bridge. The goal was to make a wall mount that feels and looks like a Philips product , simplifying installation and eliminating clutter. So at first I took the dimensions from the Philips Hue Bridge Enclosure, the dimensions I found online didn’t match the real life dimension. So that’s why I needed to design the Philips Hue Bridge – Wall Mount V2.0.
Philips Hue Bridge – Wall Mount V2.0
The Hue Bridge is the brain that wirelessly controls your Hue lights. The bridge plugs into your router via Ethernet and connects with your phone and light switch controllers to control your Hue lights. The Bridge is the only required dedicated piece of hardware other than the Hue light bulbs.
The goal was to make a flexible mounting system that attaches Philips Hue Bridge directly to a wall, simplifying installation and eliminating clutter. The Philips Hue Bridge Mount needs to be especially useful for wall-mounted Internet modems as it positions the Philips hue Bridge near the Ethernet port, eliminating the need to tunnel the Cat cable cable along or through your wall.
Philips Hue Bridge – dimensions
So at first I need the dimensions from the Philips Hue Bridge. Then I need to draw the Phillips Hue Bridge in Fusion 360. Fusion 360 is a 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE tool that connects your entire product development process in a single cloud-based platform that works on both Mac and PC. You can download it here. Here below you will find the dimensions as I used them to design the Philips Hue Bridge Wall Mount.
As you can see the dimensions online where 89 mm x 89 mm x 25 mm ( 3.5″ x 3.5″ x 1.0″ ). But the real life the dimensions are 90,7 mm x 90,7 mm x 26,9 mm (3.57″ x 3.57″ x 1.05″).
Designing the wall mount
Now it’s time to draw an functional but aesthetic wall mount for the bridge. In contrast to the previous design this one has a smaller wall thickness. My previous model had a wall thickness from 3 mm, I narrowed it down to 2 mm. It also has some thinner edges, what makes it a more aesthetic design.
