Cooling Tray for a Laptop Made Out of Knex (no Weird Peices)




this is my first instructible so be considerit. as the title says, its a cooling tray for a laptop made out of knex with none of those weird pieces, all basic pieces.

P.S. even if you dont want to do this one, you NEED a laptop tray, you dont want to burn out ur hard drive and have to buy another!(i learned the hard way)

k, i did get the base idea from flio191 but the design is all me.

Step 1: Step 1

Step one is building the base. build wats in the picture. just build the first, all the other are just close-ups

Step 2: The Standy Thingys

build four of them.

Step 3: The Bar

now build the bar that keeps your laptop from sliding towards you.

Step 4: Put It All Together

put it all together, stert with the leg thingys and then do the bar.(the third pic is just looking at the back, this is where you connect the bar.

Step 5: Congradulations

You Finished, test it out, petty sterty huh! thanks for reading and please comment.

    Cool! I have a Windows 8 Inspiron 15 laptop worth $500. It's good to know that it won't overheat with this stand. You've potentially saved my laptop's life. Thank you. ;)

    now i am kinda annoyed from all the labtop holders. every labtop is different is size(unless you have the same labtop). so all the trays have to be different.

    ya, it seems to be study, and if its the different sizes that are the problems, you just need to tweak the design a little.what i was mainly trying to accomplish was to make one that had only basic parts. next one im going to try to make is a collapsible one so its easier to store. p.s. dont you love spell check!LOL
