    Great job on your project! It came out looking and working great! It was interesting to hear about your design, and some of the challenges that you faced. It is nice to be able to make a useful item that you can have at home. I can foresee some of the techniques that you learned here coming in handy in future projects. Awesome work!

    Great project, and fantastic job finding an aesthetic and making it come to life! The clear goal of the project was to make a stand for both a 12.9″ and 16″ tablet, both of which have varying weights but the second is pretty heavy (max 3.3 lbs but there can’t be any risk of dropping either of them). This set up a great challenge, but your product did an awesome job of fulfilling the requirements. I also like your use of an inexpensive easel from Goodwill, that was a great idea to save time and money. Also, great job adapting to the monitor’s cooling fan and the USB ports on the side of the monitor stand. It’s a little too bad the chords butt into the desktop monitor but hopefully you come up with an easy fix for that. I can’t wait to see your project in person at the expo! Overall, great work!

  • I’m really impressed by how well everything works. The pieces looked like they slid in and out really easily. The fit and finish seemed to be really good, which would be important in the functionality of your project. I could definitely see the sharp sports-car like aesthetic in the final design. You mentioned you were going to smooth out the sharp edges; it’s probably a good idea so you can’t accidentally hurt yourself. Since the sharpness is part of the aesthetic, do you think sharpening the edges could change the aesthetic a little bit, or will you try to keep it still looking razer sharp?

    I really like the fact that this is something useful and fills the purpose that you set out for. The slider of the design seems to work very well and fills the purpose that it was built for. it might be worth printing another piece for the cords to fit through so that you can keep your aesthetic going throughout the entire design. I understand your frustration with the 3D printing process as there are often many errors that are associated with it. I would like to see it in person at expo but i understand the difficulties with mounting it to something that isn’t permanent. Im curious if the color was something that you chose or just what was available with printer materials. For future presentations it would really help if you faced the audience more often so that we can see how proud of your project you are.

    I really like how you incorporated your drawing capabilities to bring the project to life. Personally I went straight from my ideas phase straight to the CAD, I liked that you took your time really though through the idea by drawing it out. I also really liked the time loop of the 3d printer doing work it adds a nice touch to your presentation. It was nice to see that you had an answer for your design problems, and your final product definitely represents your aesthetic well.

    I commend your patience with the 3d printing process – that must have taken ages! Especially the persistence to follow through even when some parts failed. Even throughout adapting your stand to make sure it allowed for cable connections and such as that you were still able to keep your ‘Lamborghini Veneno’ aesthetic. The adjustability of the design is pretty neat, it looks like it can hold tablets of various sizes. I think covering the exposed screws would be a good move in the future. It would prevent scratches and I think it would help the aesthetic of the tablet stand.
