So here we go. enjoy _
Step 1: Building the Basic Shape
Once u have constructed this first section attach the red rods in the postions, as the second picture
Step 2: Adding the Next Layer
Once you have constructed the layer, push it down flat against the first layer.
Add another layer just like this, do you will have something looking like the third picture, with 3 layers so far!
Step 3: Finish the Side Pieces
Once you have done this, add another layer, exactly the same and it should look like the second picture.
Now, your almost there, Make this same shape again, but this time make it mirrored, so you should have two pieces like the 3rd picture.
Step 4: Bridging the Gulf
Step 5: Bridging the Gulf 2
Step 6: Setting the Width
For my laptop (macbook) and also to fit the apple wireless keyboard, add loads of the Darker grey single connectors, and a few of the short brown connectors to keep the spacing set. for a macbook, i found that 8 on either side, then 13 in the middle, plus the one half blue piece (you will have to unhook the grey rod to slip this on.) as in picture 1
For your laptop this mite differ, so play around till the width is spot on for you.
Repeat this for the two back struts, as in the second picture, same number of pieces as the front one.
Finally i added a little extra support like in picture 3.
Step 7: Finished, or Not, You Decide!
However, i did add a few extra bits, one too hold cables, and one to hold the apple remote.
Step 8: Apple Remote Dock
Add a grey connetor to each of the white rods, and then two further yellow connectors joined by little green rods. and you should have something like picture 2.
Using the black connectors, slide this entire piece onto the yellow connectors of the main dock, so that it lines up with the gap, as in picture 3.
The apple remote then slides in via the gap between the panels. and should fit like the 3rd picture.
Apple remote dock, done.
Step 9: Adding the Cable Catcher
Pop the cables through the gaps, and slide the grey connectors.
Theres also a handy space to keep the power block, so its not sat in the way. (picture 2)
Step 10: The Final Thing.
The keyboard slots in the front (spacebar first) and sits there quite nicely.
You can see the apple remote Just poking out the side.
And the cables are kept in tow.
The only design floor is that on the front right, the IR sensor is actually covered up. so i basically popped out the middle yellow piece.
Let me know what you think! sorry if the pics are a bit blurry, i took them on my phone.
Also i would love to see any versions that you mite make, with mods etc. (eg i was thinking of adding an ipod dock in the side, under the apple remote where theres a space)
