The idea for designing the HexaHive Laptop Stand came after making these new 3D printable speaker stands. I am using a pair of Yamaha HS7 which were taking up too much space on my desk and I wanted to raise them up a bit, so I designed the HexaHive Speaker Stand.
The HexaHive Speaker Stand has the following features:
- Raises the speakers to ear level for better soundstage.
- Hexagonal base can be used as storage allowing you to reclaim a bit of desk space.
- It’s sturdy and stable, to hold the speakers securely in place.
- Wire management openings in the base, to route the cables easily and keep your desk tangle-free.
- Designed to be compatible with Yamaha HS7 speakers, but you can resize the stand according to your needs.
- Can be 3D printed with no supports
- Ready for future upgrades that can be attached to the hexagons.
This model is also given away as a Patreon reward on the higher tiers.
Recommended print settings:
- Material: PLA
- Layer height: 0.3mm
- Number of walls: 3
- Infill: 10%
- Nozzle temperature: 210C
- Bed temperature: 60C
- Print speed: 60 mm/s
I printed mine using the Sidewinder X2 in PETG using a 0.8mm nozzle. Because of that, I used a 0.4 layer height and 1mm line width for faster printing. Unfortunately, the filament I used is not that great, but it came out pretty good and the model is usable.
With these settings, the print time was ~48 hours and I used 2 rolls of filament.
