This is my Imac mini!
I have been waiting a long time to make this one.
I am very happy with it and the few people that have seen it love it.
Its made out of 5 parts, all of which fit nicely.
I printed it using PLA on a 3D touch machine.
The last 3D part I made was the one that holds the ipad from falling off.
( I thought of using velcro dots for this)
However I found an old gopro suction cup that I found on Ebay for $3 US dollars from china (from I am sure you can find similar from a two dollar shop)
This suited me better because i didnt have to stick anything on my beloved Ipad mini.
The other thing I have done is to put some weight inside the dome ( I used a couple of nice garden stones which were white!)
But thats because i could not wait to have it up and running, in time I will find something more suitable like heave washers or a few big bolts (anyway for you to play with)
In my next version, I will add the holes on the top, but you could drill them yourself if you feel inclined.
My 3D printer creates scafolding under the dome and with that many little holes it would have taken too long to print I thought.
Anyways, I hope you get to enjoy making it and showing it off as much as I have!
This is another model I made using ArchiCAD 17, which allowed me to make it in under an hour.
The base took me about 13 hours to print, the dome about the same and the Ipad mini holder (the one with the velcro circles) took only 4 hours.
BTW I used 2x 4mm bolts with washers they came in 40mm length which you need to cut the excess for a tidy finish.
Please post photos when you finish as i would love to see them
print at the scale it comes in
put it together
