This is the second version of my riser feet for the Alienware 13 R3. This version is much more robust than the first version. These clip onto the outside of the ventilation ports at the rear of the machine, providing a much stronger anchor than V1 - which only used the rear rubber 'foot' on the underside of the machine to secure to.

Again I have originally designed them to use a rubberised material for the clip and foot of the riser, while the body is which ever plastic you want to use. There is a version included that can be printed using a single material though, but I would strongly recommend using the rubber version. I found the single material to be a little too tight on the vent and was worried it could break it. Using a flexible material for the contact points still gives an excellent connection but it gives way as it is clipped on thus reducing the risk of breaking the laptop's casing.

There is also the Alienware logo on the riser as well, because, why not :D

Printed using black PLA and green FlexPLA from Rigid.ink - other filament re-sellers are available! ;)

Based on feed back (thanks WanaGo :D) I have uploaded an experimental version that has a cutout that I hope will act a bit like a hinge to allow single extruder users to use the clip without risk of breaking. PLEASE USE AT OWN RISK (sorry just covering my rear end ;)

Trying the Experimental version now - Thanks!

Printer warming up. If this works, it would be totally awesome to have a 2 colour version, and have the alien face filled in the 2nd colour :) Just sayin. Fingers crossed. Thanks

If it works I'll update all off them with that option!

Sadly they are not right, they have to be fully bent to clip on. Its like the jaw is actually too small. Got some photos.


I just measured the laptop, and to me it seems like the back of the laptop is 19.4mm thick where the clip goes, between the ridges. Measuring that part on your STL, it seems to be about 16.7mm, so the clip just seems physically too small, which means the jaw has to snap in order to fit on there, and then it stays at quite a broken angle. Thoughts?

I'll have a look when I'm get home :) Probably had to make it a little tighter with flex filament and make sure it gripped.

The experimental one was tweaked while I am away from a printer

Cool Thanks :)

Figured out what is wrong....
Yours is a 13"... mine is 15".... :o
I have remixed this now :) Thanks so much for the design
