This is a simple wedge shaped laptop stand. I've looked around for good 3D printable laptop stands, and most of them simply don't work well with the light weight of a Macbook Pro Retina. Others don't work with large, heavy laptops. So, I decided to create the simplest, most robust design I could, which should work with any laptop, of any weight.


Print two for stability. Find rubber (or an old mouse pad), and cut/glue the rubber into the inserts.  

Recommended Print Settings

- .2mm height
- 25% infill
- 2 perimeters


I've added the Autodesk Inventor file I used to create the STL; I'm not sure how useful that might be to people, but it was requested, so I put it up. Enjoy!

Materials and methods

- 2x Printed Laptop Wedges
- 4x Rubber strips
