    Now it doesn't fit in the docking station! I know you can charge it directly but I kinda liked the dock [​IMG]

    Obvious stuff is Obvious. put it in the dock without the case. wiggles a very small amount no room for a case unless its paper thin. they dont make paper thin plastic cases nor is silicon thin enough. no case will allow it to fit in the dock unless you go with just the upper protection. ive seen an aluminum cover for the top and bottom but they didnt have to connect so you could just do without the bottom and your top would be covered which is the only thing that matters anyway.

    Many people, including myself, bought these protective cases because they have hinges that reinforce the 3DS, and make it more sturdy. I have a wobbly hinge, and removing the bottom of a case would defeat my purpose for using it. I do agree with you though, it should be obvious that any accessory that adds bulk won't allow the 3DS to fit in the cradle. I think it would be cool if some company made a high quality clear case, and packaged it with a charging dock that was compatible (c'mon Logitech, you can do it).

    You could always plug it directly in without the dock?

    You know what I mean guys like paper 3DS templates that you can custom design then slide between your 3DS and the clear case?
    I did a sick Castlevania one on my Lite.

    Did my 360 today too:[​IMG]

    Yea I want to do that too.

    For the DS Lite you had a MadCatz app for it.
    To print it 1:1.

    I'll go and try to size it right some time.

    Also, I've got the Hori one, it still shines and stuff, but it doesn't have a extra hinge thing, unlike 3rd party ones.

    I had a clear case that actually made the hinge of my old ds lite more loose and I have no idea why lol. I actually have 1 for my 3ds as well (came with the pouch I bought for it) but I never use it. Maybe because its one of those cheap types but I had a hard time trying to fit the 3ds in it, to the point where it felt like the handheld might snap in 2 or something from forcing the case to it. Because of that, I'd rather just keep my 3ds in its pouch.

    I recommend the 3DS Animal Protective bag to you,.It helps to protect the host against scratch,shock and fall.The Protective 3D Hard Case also has an internal mesh pocket inside for storing game card or other 3DS accessories.
