3D model description

After trying a couple laptop stands for my Macbooks (one personal, one work), I decided to build a model from scratch to serve my purposes.

Profile A (thicker profile) has been tested on:
- Macbook Pro 2013
- Macbook Pro 2015

Profile B (thinner profile) has been tested on:
- Macbook Pro 2018


  • Specialized stand profile for glovelike fit on the Macbook 2013, 2015 2018 (other models may work, but have not been tested)
  • Gentle 22.5º angle for easy hand access to keyboard and lower overall height
  • Balanced center-of-gravity to avoid tipping
  • Stand inner arm angled to avoid collision with the screen surface when closed
  • When the screen edge touches the stand top, the screen will turn off as if it were shut completely
  • Stand design allows multiple Macbooks to be nested while ensuring enough space for cooling
  • Rounded edges to avoid accidental scratching or scraping
  • Optional crossbar to lock the stands into place


The prints in my photos are not as good as they could be (my printer was miscalibrated at the time). Nonetheless, they were functionally effective, so I did not reprint)
