How was the Mac Mount developed?
The original Mac Mount protoype was actually hand-built by Ben using a DIY made plastic line-heater. Half way through heating, the strip heater broke and the job had to be finished with a blow torch.
Fortunately, Mac Mounts are now manufactured proffesionally using an industry grade computer-aided miller, line-bending machine, and then flame polished by hand.
The original Mac Mount CAD Design, made in SketchUp. Simple, yet effective.
The original mock-ups are still going strong today, holding our office AirPort Extreme securely in place. We learned from version '1.0' a lot about the construction and height - the prototype needed packing out with an extra plastic block to suit the modem. This looked a little messy, so the production design has been modified to rid this problem.
