This is a simple macbook stand or dock made from K'nex.

Step 1: Make the Big Part

This is only the 2d part, with the exception of one piece. If you don't have panels, replace the 3-holed triangular panels with just a yellow/grey rod and the 35 hole ones with grey rods.

The black rod that should be as long as the blue ones (between the middle two 3-holed panels) is actually a tiny triangular panel, pointing down.

Step 2: Add the Side and Middle "legs"

they aren't really legs. If you dont have they tiny triangular piece, substitute with a 5-point yellow/vomit gold/grey with 3 green/black tiny rods. The first pic is for the middle and the last is for th two sides.

Step 3: Back End

Simple and easy

Step 4: You Are Done!


(sorry for shaky pic)

The stand has held up for at least 12 weeks, and I feel it makes it more fun to type.
nice i like it, all laptop docks should be made out of knex, check out my one, ive not done an instructable, cos i cant be bothered to dismantle it. it is verry sturdy, i added some bits of foam to stop my macbook getting scratched.
Please post some more pics, from the back and the bottom, simple enough.
as much as i would like to provide you with some pics, this laptop dock was dismantled about a year ago, for replacement of a superior model!<br/><br/>Which can be found <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Laptop-Macbook-Uber-Docking-Stand/">here</a>, and uses the same basic structure, but alot less parts aswell as being adjustable.<br/>
I have the oddest feeling I have seen that before.....
yes. i posted it on another knex laptop dock instructable
That would probably be where I saw it. It appears very sturdy, and it is very simple, I can make it from that picture, but I have no laptop, and thus no reason to make it. But it is a very good idea, since knex have holes.
I need a few more pics : P
In which case my friend, if you wanted to write an instructable about it, your more than welcome, as i am never going to get round to it, im too busy building my plasma rifle. and i would rather everyone had the knowledge! ps it is very sturdy, doesnt move one bit. better than anything i could of bort. theres also room to fit a fan on the inside if needs be,
Okay. I might be able to make an instructable on it, but I probably won't be able to get the whole thing right, and I have some other things to do, my dad and I are trying to mod a digital camera to take high-speed shots, as soon as it senses movement, it should take a picture, but we haven't started yet...
Oooo, that one looks nice. too bad I don't have a laptop.
get a laptop! lol, my next challenge is to make a vertical notebook stand. any ideas?
Made this, liked it one problem laptop scratches and desk sliding, solution: ductape padding. I might post pic later.
yay for knex macbook stands! (i made an instructable too :p)
i dont think i'd put my laptop on 10 dollars of knex, o well... -gamer
Awesome Howe!
