The Stacking Stand is a fully 3D printed device that allows an R-Go Split Break Ergonomic Keyboard to be supported at three different tenting angles. A tenting angle can help reduce pronation of the forearm and improve ergonomics. Using these 6 different 3D printed blocks, the user can elevate their keyboard at a 5, 10, or 15-degree angle.
The user can stack one, two, or three interlocking blocks under each of the inner sides to help elevate the keyboard to the desired tenting angle. When in use, the user can place a non-slip mat underneath the keyboards and blocks to reduce unwanted movement.
This device consists of several 3D printed components and some commercially available non-slip mats. All STL’s and documentation can be found in the downloadable maker files.
