Introduction: Sugru Tablet Dock Fix (TF201)
At Fablab Breda(the Netherlands) I got the chance to play with Sugru!
The day before a part of my tablet dock broke off. I tried to fix it with superglue. But is was still wobbly.
So I added some Sugru support inside the slot where the tablet goes and on the underside of the slot.
I tried two different approaches to get a ±2mm layer of Sugru inside the slot. The first one failed, but the second one succeeded!
Step 1: First Try
I thought... maybe I could press a strip of sugru on the inside of the slot.
I stuck three lines of tape on the table, the middle as last so it is on top off other two.
The problem was: in the inside of the slide there is a small strip off felt. The sugru did not want the stuck to that. It came lose all the time.
So I tried a different approach!
Step 2: Second Try
I roll the Sugru to a small roll.
Then, put a small amount to Sugru on a screwdriver.
This way I could plaster the inside!
Step 3: All Done!
You can't see black sugru so well inside a black slot... But take it from me, my tablet Isn't so wobbly anymore!
