Intro: Laser Cut Laptop Stand

The simplest and lightest laptop stand you can imagine. Fits all 15" screen laptops and below, but easily alterable for bigger devices.

Step 1: Layout and Cutting

First, download the layout (.ai file) and grab a 29x29 cm, 3 mm thick plywood sheet. Don't forget to alterate the layout if your board is an other thickness or if your laptop is more than 23 cm deep. I left the early stages of the drawing in the file to make it easier for you.

Feed the .ai file into a cutting machine. Should be done in less than 5 minutes for 1 stand.

Step 2: Assemble and Enjoy

You should easily figure out how to assemble the 4 parts. Gluing is not necessary.

Now you got yourself a nice and light laptop stand that all your coworkokers will envy. I hope your desk is tidier than mine though!

Hi! Its really awesome.

Your .ai file is broken. It only has text. It would be super if you could change it.

Just tried, and it worked fine on Illustrator CC. It has been created with Illustrator CS5. What program are you trying to open it with?

That should not be a problem. You just need to broaden the all eight slits from 3mm to 6mm. Your stand will be much stronger than mine!

Hello! Can you send me the file with the changes for 6mm plywood sheet because i'm not able to figure it out. I'm not so proficient with the software.
