Well, this is my second version of the K'nex laptop stand, this time i set about making a more sturdy design, and one with a place to store my wireless keyboard, and appl remote, when not in use. As well as not using a massive amount of pieces, so anyone can build it, if you can follow my instructions that is.
So here we go. enjoy _
Step 1: Building the basic shape
Start by constructing the shape in the first picture, nice and easy. if you dont have any panel pieces, it can easily be replaced by a mixture of blue and yellow rods, (like on further steps if your stuck)
Once u have constructed this first section attach the red rods in the postions, as the second picture
Step 2: Adding the next layer
build the shape, again as the first picture, clipping the relevant pieces to the red rods, then adding the rods in the layer after.
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
Adding the 4 slightly different layer, (this allows the slot that holds the wireless keyboard in place) add the pieces as the first picture, the main difference is where the orange and small grey connectors are added. in the middle, and towards the front.
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
Place the two sides, next to each other. Start by adding the 4 grey connectors on either side, as picture 1. Now join these two halves together using a long grey rod, as picture 2. repeat this step for the back two red rods, but this time using red corner connectors (this helps stoping you from using up all the grey connectors)
