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 ;)
