Has anyone come across a way of using the charging pins without removing the case?

I wish I had one of those 3D printers. It would be easy to make a clamp with a couple of pins.

Now looking at it, I realized I had to extend the pins from the cable with those little 'pins', using classic "soldering iron?" ( not sure about this word, I had to google it ) because the pins of the tablet in the case were to high, then I thaught at first
And the whole 'body' is just covered with tesa tape - dont want to have polystyrene everywhere
