completed my version 1.5 of the Fusion 360 laptop stand tutorial tonight. i say 1.5 because my first draft was too large to fit my 15" macbook and barely worked for my 17". so i went back into fusion, adjusted the width of the stand and reprinted the top and support pieces. i am quite pleased with myself. tomorrow i want to add some embellishments to the top and sides.
in case any one is interested the tutorial i followed and then tweaked to my tastes can be found here
