HexaHive Stand for MacBook Pro 14/16 - Futuristic Laptop Stand

I recently moved from using a PC to a MacBook Pro 14. The laptop is still connected to a bunch of displays and peripherals so I wanted to have a nice stand for it. But from a simple laptop stand, I eventually got to making the HexaHive Stand for MacBook.

The HexaHive Stand has the following features:

  1. Perfect angle for having the screen at 90 degrees when open.
  2. Raises the laptop to a comfortable height which helps with correct posture (Screen base is at 27cm)
  3. It’s sturdy and stable, to keep your laptop safe during use.
  4. Wire management openings in the base, to route the cables easily and keep your desk tangle-free.
  5. Designed to be fully compatible with both MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16, but it can work with similar laptops too.
  6. Can be 3D printed with no supports.
  7. Ready for future upgrades that can be attached to the hexagons.

Recommended print settings:

  • Material: PLA
  • Layer height: 0.3mm
  • Number of walls: 3
  • Infill: 10%
  • Nozzle temperature: 205C
  • Bed temperature: 60C
  • Print speed: 50 mm/s

With these settings, the print will take less than 24 hours to print and you will use about 700 grams of filament.
I chose to make it big and heavy, but you can use different settings to minimize material use. Two walls with no infill should work just as well, but I did not test those settings yet.

The model can be purchased from Cults and MyMiniFactory, but it is also given away as a Patreon reward on higher tiers.
