I just made this. It's really beautiful and functional but the .ai file doesn't include everything. Anyone making this in the future should know that they need to add the notches to adjust the height and possibly make the additional piece wider depending on your material where it narrows so it slides in easier. I used 1/8" plywood and can't insert the piece as is so I cut off the bottom and it still closes fine.

The computer bounces a little when you type. It doesn't bother me but it may be an issue for others who type hard.

The hinge is a bit stiff so either extending the pattern a few more rows or switching to the more flexible hinge found in this file may help (after putting my laptop on it, it cracked on the surface at two places): http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12707 I've used this flexible hinge for a bookstand and it can hold 8lb books with no problem ad has never cracked.

Hopes this helps anyone.

Thanks! No, the ipad piece is lasered in the standard, the only additional piece is the one who hold the standard together.

Great design! Did you cut out an additional piece to get the ipad to stand on it?
