I use my MacBook Air for 95% of my work.

I use my Thinkpad mostly for astronomy related apps that aren’t available on the Mac.

I wanted a clean way to store them together when tied into my monitor/keyboard/mouse.

Designed this in Tinkercad. It’s a dual laptop stand. Modern 3D printing meets old world woodworking.
Printed on Ender 3 Pro.

Has cable management brackets built into the side. I did an epoxy fillet around the brackets. It a trick I learned from model rocketry to enhance strength.

Modeled it to use off the shelf 1”x8” common boards from Home Depot. Just did a quick wipe on poly after sanding and it’s ready to rock (after drying of course).

Well done! At first I thought it was going to be a hinged stand, but that looks sleek and straight forward.

Way better than the stock board. This thing is silent except for the fans. I printed a new cover for the PSU and put a bigger, quieter fan in it.
The hotend fans are still loud but those are slightly more difficult to replace, so I haven't bothered.
