    I just came across your post. I'm looking to create the exact 3 screen setup you've done. Would you be willing to create and sell me 2 of your stands? Hope to hear from you soon.

    I would also be willing to pay for your services to create two of those.

    Hi Pcho, This post is 1.5 years old, I had same plan do raise the height of cenima display, last year in july i bought iMac 27 but droped the idea of 2 cinema displays as the ML wasnt doing great with multiple monitors in full screen apps, so now Maverick announced and it handles screens the way i wanted them, so im buying just after the release of new OSX, I just wanted to to know from you with this little curve on both diplays how much total length it takes starting from one diplay to the last one, if we put them flat its straight 77" but in that case it take little less place, I have very place in my house with big window and im planning to place the whole setup in front of that, just wanted to be sure it dont look little tight there, and i must say your setup looks clean and beautiful. now twleve south is also selling Hirise to match the level of both displays but they are charging way to high $79 for one cant spend too much on the thing which i can make easily in my workshop even with Alumnium block. which will cost me only 10% of what they are asking for one.

    could you give us the size of your stand for the display?

    My solution for my hp monitor + imac 21


    1. Put the stand on a cardboard and drwaw the outline of the stand
    2. Adjust the height by puting some thing under the monitor, notice the height
    3. Cut out the cardboard and go to a carpenter and ask him to cut a pice of wood in to the sample size
    4. when you have the stand go and buy a metalic grey spray paint and a brush
    5. paint the stand and go over with brush to make everything smooth
    6. Let the stand dry for 10h
    7. use it


    Here is mine, still waiting to dry (i will make a second try)

    This is an old post I know, but I've done something similar this week so it might help anyone trying to figure it all out.


    I followed the steps in the posts above, but got a company that cuts perspex instead of using wood. I sent the traced outline with dimensions of the base to them as a PDF and this is how I worked it out:


    - I measured the depth between the top of the iMac and a 27" display and it was 23mm when both screens were upright (vertical). I didn't need to make any allowance for tilt because I don't use them that way. But don't use 23mm for the measurement as you'll soon see what happened next...


    - Standard perspex thickness is 25mm, so I got 2 blocks cut at that size. Then I had an identical 2mm perspex sheet cut. My idea was when the blocks raised the 27" displays by 25mm each side, they would be 2mm too high for the iMac, so I would then put the 2mm sheet under the iMac to bring the tops level.


    - What actually happened was that the 25mm block turned out be be just fine for the left-hand monitor, but the other 25mm block was 2mm low for the right-hand monitor against the iMac. So I put the 2mm sheet under the right-hand monitor and everything lined up perfectly. Why there was such a big difference in size I don't know. Maybe the iMac was tilted to one side slightly at manufacture, or maybe horizontal tolerances aren't that high. But the vertical edges of all screens are exactly lining up, so it's all a bit of a puzzle.


    My iMac and monitors are just a couple months old as of this post date, and I believe that earlier models of the iMac and 27" displays were a slightly different height, so it's best to check the dimensions physically before committing to the cost.


    Prices for cutting and supplying perspex were equivalent of US$25 each, and $7 for the 2mm sheet. Price will obviously vary according to country, but at least it's not a big deal financially.


    I was very pleased with the end result, particularly since my computer table is glass and the perspex matches the look quite nicely. At night without any light behind them they go invisible,


    Hope that helps!
