Looks interesting. I guess you know this, but make sure it won't tip over once you put an Nspire in it. ;)

i'm not sure how to charge it jet or have usb in it but first i have to design the 26 pin connector piece.

I thought it is not directly usb but RS-232 , perhaps a little IC can help us there.

the bottom of the stand is longer then the nSpire gets to the end so it won't tumble



(not sure if you understand what i mean hard for me to explain it in english)

Does the dock have USB and charging contacts?
These are not printed, and as he said in a previous post, the dock circuit board (at least the correct dimensions) still remain to do.
According to the TI-Nspire Charging bays, it is possible to charge it via the dock.
Let me rephrase that. Does the dock connector on the calculator have contacts for USB and power?

Also, did you design that in Blender?

you can power it for sure but the question is which pins you have to use, it has RS-232 thought that is convertible to usb I can be wrong at this point.

no not Blender, I used Modo it's from Luxology

Hey this is really cool.  Maybe I can make one later on.
They say that your signature is supposed to go here...

I understand. You basically mean that the x coordinate of the right side of the basis is further than the x coordinate of the top of the nspire when in the dock.(I guess) :P

jup exactly.

i'm not the best at electronics, does someone know whits pins of the dock connector are for charging?

is there someone with an "Docking Station" who can check where the voltage is coming from?

it does not show where the voltage of the "Docking Station" is going into the nSpire for making a charger inside my dock.

Well charging happens via the USB port on top of the nspire, so I guess you should make some sort of movable part on top of your dock or place your nspire upside down :P But perhaps there are other ways to charge we have yet to discover.

Some people need a high five in the face... with a chair.

ti makes a "Docking Station" witch can charge over the dock connector, but nobody seems to know witch pins are used for it.

Hey, I have access to a 3d printer and a CNC. Could I get a copy of the model file?

sure but it needs to be fine tuned it is not fitting properly right now.
now i have to go to school, tell me the format you want the file in.
