Nano K'nex Ipod Dock




I'm an inactive K'nexer, I used to be one of the most active ones, but I have a lot of other thin...

This is my entry into the K'nex challenge 1

It's a universal Ipod dock, that works with all models except the shuffle(s).
It's small, easy to build and works with most sync cables.

It also comes with Bartboys limited warranty! If your ipod breaks within 5 seconds of reading this,I will cover a percentage of the cost of repairing it!

Step 1: Get Your Pieces!

You need:
2 Yellow
2 Orange
4 Green
3 Red

5 Blue
1 White
7 Green

Step 2: Step 1: the Main Frame

This is the part that holds all the other ones together.

4 green connectors on two blue rods, with 4 green rods on one end,
and 2 orange connectors on one of the blues.

Step 3: The Feet

This is the bottom of the stand, that supports the ipod.

2 yellow connectors on two blue rods, and have another blue ready.

Step 4: The Back Rest

This part supports the ipod.

I'm not sure if it's necessary, but for ipod classics and ipod touches,
I would recommend building it.

3 red connectors on a white rod, and 3 green rods in the middle.

Step 5: Assembly

How to put it together*!

  • I never would have guessed!

Clip the green connectors onto the yellows, then slide the red connectors onto the green rods. Put in your sync cable, and clip on the last blue rod.

    Best Ever! I've tried almost all other docks, but this one is the easiest and the best working!

    The only problem is you could easily knock it over, but anyone who's not clumsy wouldn't :P

    The idea is to build it onto your other creations!
