3D model description

There is no facility to change the angle of the Apple Wireless Keyboards (Model as pictured). The standard angle is only 6 degrees (approx.) which means the keys are very flat and your fingers need to push down from almost directly overhead.

Many people prefer their keyboard to angle back further as they find the higher angle makes pushing keys easier and typing is more comfortable as well as being less tiring on your hands / wrist.

The Apple Keyboard Risers are quick and easy prints that allow users to raise the back of their keyboard by 10 / 15 / 20 / 25mm to suit their personal angle of preference (.stls for each of these sizes provided).

Changing your Apple Keyboard angle is simple... first determine the best set for your personal preference by placing objects temporarily under the back of your keyboard to raise it up. Find things approx. 10 / 15 / 20 / 25mm (so the same as the options provided) to see which angle you find most comfortable... download the file and print two.

Installation is simple... on an accurate well set up machine they should be a firm / tight push on fit. Install one on each end just inside the standard keyboards rubber pads. Rotate the Apple Keyboard Risers forwards, so more underneath the Keyboard, until they cannot rotate further. They have been designed to be stopped from rotating by the underside of the keyboard and have been slightly angled so they will not rotate backwards during use.

The standard Apple Keyboard has rubber pads underneath that help stop it from sliding during use. As these pads will no longer make contact with the surface they Keyboard is being used on it is recommended to stick some thin rubber / non-slip pads onto the bottom of your Apple Keyboard Risers. Suitable adhesive backed material should be easy to find at any hardware store.

The Apple Keyboard Risers have been trialled with a number of Mac users with very positive feedback. Most users seem to prefer the 15mm and 20 mm options. They are quick and easy to print as well as use very little filament.

Please refer to the print settings and images for additional information. They need to be printed with high infill to ensure they are strong and will last well.
