This is another little project I'm working on. It's a slim laptop stand used to raise the height of the laptop in order to make it more confortable to use and increase the airflow under it.
I designed it in order to be printed entirely in TPU, so it is enough flexible to bend but also strong enough so it won't break.
It's made of 4 pieces:
2 bottom pieces. This part goes flush on the bottom of the laptop. It has a little hole to put the little part of the top pieces in order to "lock" the stand in position. This two pieces have a groove inside, in order to put in a piece of metal or some slim and strong material so the whole piece gain more strenght. You have to attach together both pieces with the strong piece inside of it;
2 top pieces. This is the movable part. Like the other, this two pieces have some grooves inside, in order to put in a piece of metal or some slim and strong material so the whole piece gain more strenght. This piece goes inside the hole in the bottom piece and it is the foot of the laptop.
At the end you have to glue both pieces together in order to open and close it.
This is fully working. I just don't have the right glue to make the TPU stick together and don't break in half. If you have some ideas to how to glue them together let me know!
Let me know if you like it, if you print one yourself, and also consider checking the other stuff I make on my profile. I'm still learning how to model things, but I have lots of ideas and I'll upload them soon!
I'm a maker, student and "learner". I love creating things with my hand, and I love the idea of using a 3D printer to help me make it. I like drawing and designing things on the PC and on a piece of paper. I'm not that good at the moment, but since I started I'm improving a lot (maybe...)
