I am a dabbler. I like to make things better than what they were intended for. I play with Yoyos ...

I had downloaded a laptop stand and cut it out at TechShop Round Rock- Austin and it was extremely flimsy. I did not like this. I designed this laptop stand to fit my 15 inch Macbook Pro. I uploaded the .AI file so that you can scale it then use a laser cutter to cut it out. Then assemble.

I used 1/8 inch MDF for the pieces

 
I chose the MDF for how cheap it was and sturdy. 

I made this at TechShop

Download the file.

Change the gaps where the pieces connect to your specific material that you will be cutting.

Use Adobe Illustrator.

I said it in the intro slide but I will say it again.
