Port Dock for Samsung np900x3b (2012 series 9)

I love this Samsung ultrabook- so much that I even dock it at home to my monitor/tv + external keyboard/mouse. However, I find it annoying to constantly plug in and unplug three separate cables.

Step 1. Get the measurements.
After being unable to find a good profile photo online, I just took one myself:

Step 3. Take measurements + finish the model.
Here is what the finished model looked like:

Step 4. Print!
