    3D printed... uh... "case", which sticks an mITX board on stilts at a groovy angle. Inspired by all manner of open-frame chassis.

    The shown system is an AsRock J3455-ITX with a PicoPSU-80 and a cheap Crucial 120gb SSD, which mounts as shown below:

    I really don't feel like this is worth much, but it was a fun modeling project and a neat print.

    No cheating in SFF...!

    It may look all cool & angular & slick; but when you have to total up the bounding box volume...

    Nice. With the mobo off it sort of reminds me of an MC Escher drawing....

    That is the exact board I am planning on using in a project. What is there height of the highest component (guessing the heatsink)?

    The tallest component I measured is actually the I/O shroud over the audio ports. I get roughly 38mm there of total board thickness, including solder pokies on the bottom.
