So I spent the better part of the last two weeks measuring the case and transferring those points into Sketchup. That was the easy part. The hard part was then transferring that file into PDF to print 1:1. It took me forever to figure that part out. So here is the first print of the motherboard tray. When I am done with my work the file is going to be sent to David at
. David is then going to place the motherboard standoff points on the tray and cut it from 5 mm acrylic in neon green. This is what David's trays look like.
This was the first model I made. I found issues with it so I started all over again.
This tray is closer to what can be done. I still need to add a bit more material to the top and the bottom of the tray for the screw to hold on to.
So over then next couple of days I am going to take the case apart again and fit this paper model. Then make some more changes and print it again.
