Level 2 Challenge
Dongle Manager for MacBook Pro
Wires and dongles for laptop computers are ubiquitous. All the adapters needed for a functioning workspace can make the space, well, dysfunctional. Therefore, for this challenge, the goal is to create a device that can manage these ports and cables, making wired-connections quick and easy.
Requirements: The dongle manager must be small enough to be 3D printed in the Ultimaker2 build box, which is 9″ x 9″ x 9″. The device should be able to interface with a Macbook Pro 13″ or 15″ with ease. This is the only requirement; the rest is up to your judgment.
Specifications and Instructions:
