Lightweight Laptop stand

design

#1

Here is my first draft of a Laptop stand.

It was heavily inspired from https://www.instructables.com/id/Laser-Cut-Laptop-Stand/ But since I can’t open the files, I recreated it from scratch.


I used Autodesk Inventor for the 3D design and then exported it out to Inkscape.

Really tight joint no need for glue. So it could be packed.

It is clearly missing some beautification on the side.

But anyway, here it is plain.

Changed to Mortaise and Tenon joint and added beautification
Support%20%C3%A0%20ordi%20v2%20GF

Upgrade to be made:
-Better use of surface/ better integration in the GF bed dimension.
-Loosen Tenon and Mortaise joint

Nice first contribution but be careful with slot and tab, it is a rabbit hole that when you fall down it you may never find your way out. :smile:

All hail the Slot and tab Saint, and the Finger Joint God and the Dovetail Mother. May there glory (Laser) Enlighten our path and bind all together.

By the way, technically it isn’t my first submitted, but it is the first I have actually fabricated.

I did a lot of slot and tab till discovering that fingers are much stronger, but unglued all are very much weaker. just twist a bit and the best slot and tab does a hula dance.
