- Some Details and the Benefits of this Stand -
PS - You can make this stand for either a 15" or 13" laptop!
The first benefit and feature of this specific laptop stand is that it raises your laptop screen up 7", allowing for a more comfortable experience while using your laptop. This will prevent your neck from getting cramps, and just allow for overall a more comfortable view of the screen.
The second main feature and benefit is that it has an open middle to allow cooling for your laptop. This is a huge feature as the worst thing you can do to your laptop is restrict it's airflow, which will eventually cause it to overheat and burn up the processor and fans. By having this unique open middle, the laptop can draw air in from both sides of the laptop and the back. Allowing it to cool the laptop much faster and more efficiently. This will also significantly lengthen the overall lifetime of your laptop.
This stand is made completely out of cabinet grade plywood but can also be made out of a solid wood.
In the DXF file that you can download you will find designs for both 13" and 15" laptops.
And, you can make this laptop stand with either a CNC router or a scrollsaw.
