Here it is the keyboard to go along with my Macintosh Apple mini dock homage.
I have now finished designing the keyboard.
I received more PLA in the mail today so its printing as we speak
I received my bluetooth keyboard that I bought on Ebay to use for this project, it works fine and for under $20 AUS.
This is the keyboard I used:
I have the apple II design almost ready to print also.
I will be accepting donations through PayPal to support the making of these for you all fellow apple gadget lovers.
a $1 dollar would be nice if you download it and I will continue to update it and if you buy a different keyboard, I will make you the matching keyboard, donations to firstname.lastname@example.org
It has the apple logo and the cut out for the disk drive works without support if you print it sideways
I am printing one right now in white, it will take about 11 hours on 'fast'.
So I thought it would be a neat idea to modify it to suit an ipad mini.
I will visit the Apple store in Brisbane CBD again to take photos of our completed work!!!
I used ArchiCAD, I am an architect.
I downloaded the original macintosh model as a sketch up file and import it to archicad, then I did the same for the ipad mini.
from the article I downloaded the images and changed it to suit and kept the original proportions where I could
Then I changed it a little more to be able to put in on the 3d printing bed, it just fits on my 3d touch.
And I rendered it using Artlantis really quickly
