My laptop is large (17") and causes back problems when looking over towards it, so I decided to make a parametrically configured laptop stand. By configuring the LaptopWidth, LaptopHeight, and Thickness, I could print laptop stands for anyone who wanted one. Furthermore, I wanted to make this modular so we could switch out the top piece for more functionality (Desktop, Fan, Heatsink, etc)
I designed the laptop side pieces, support, and top structure in Fusion 360.
For modularity, I designed other tops that fit with the stand for various applications. One would be an insert allow for a heat sink.
In my first iteration I made the notches too large for the cardboard(0.25in) and then reduced them to 0.15in (or 3.9mm).
After laser cutting, I learned how to do vinyl cutting and made some Media Lab logos.
