Cube Case 1.0

In Germany the SFF-Community is still pretty small and shipping SFF-Cases from America to Germany is costly and slow. So I thought: Why not make my own SFF-Case and get to know CAD-Design while at it.

So with the help of some people online, I overhauled a 3d-printed and laser-cut sff pc case design by Gunnar Bjorkman.
Special thanks to him for the basis: https://gunnbjork.com/cases/

After altering Gunnars design, having to change some of the imperial measurements and wanting to change some other aspects, i ended up with my own design. I kept the general aesthetics and mounting systems.
As i wanted to upgrade my hardware soon to, I extended the case, did my own airflow-cutouts and built some options for the sides to choose from.

Here are some renders

Specs

  • 300mm GPU
  • full ATX PSU
  • iTX Motherboard
  • 3.5 inch HDDs and 2.5inch SSDs
  • 140mm Fans (0 – 4, based on the panel I/You choose)

Modularity

As only the corners are 3D-Printed, every side panel can be changed and the interior plates can be made out of what you want!

  • changeable side panel designs for better cooling
  • side panel material

I chose a closed top and “offside” panel made from acrylic in black, darkened transparent and milky white.

Next, I´ll be printing the corners and cutting the acrylic panels and after weeks of waiting and fine tuning the case, finally assemble it!

The Final Assembly

With the finished design and a prototype build , I got the idea of selling this online.
SPOILER: that did not work out.
