For some time (several years), I have been building KODI / XBMC boxes (to watch streaming TV and Movies) for my clients, friends and my family. After I ran out of reasonably priced Zotac Zboxes to build KODI boxes, I decided I should build a custom enclosure and use "off the shelf" ITX Mobos. Well, some of you may remember that I purchased a Laser Cutter (and Vinyl Cutter) for my shop, Smart Computer Store and Munky Mods. So, it's not a stretch to build a scratch built custom enclosure to fit Mini ITX Motherboards for KODI boxes (or maybe even a "Steam Box"). A little research led me to the AMD AM1 APU, The Sempron 3850 ($30) / Athlon 5350 ($60) with AMD Radeon R3 graphics, running at a modest 25w TDP. This little Processor (APU) is well up to the task of streaming anything you want to watch. It's benchmarks are easily double anything I was using in the past. And, a little more research led me to an amazing ASRock AM1H-ITX AM1 Motherboard that will run off a Laptop style AC Adapter (19 Volt DC Jack input). So, with my Motherboard ($55), AMD Processor ($60), Chinese 19V AC Adapter ($10) and some low profile Kingston RAM ($30) I'm on my way! The case will be a somewhat modular design that starts with corner blocks, laser cut out of 6mm thick clear acrylic. Two different designs: The first with Two (2) 4.3mm holes, to tap M5 threads into. The other with Two (2) 5.0mm holes for clearance of the M5 screws that I will use to hold the case together. Of course at 6mm thick each, I will need a pile of them! Four (4) with small holes (4.3mm), and Thirty-Two with large holes (5mm). Plus, some extras! If anyone cares: I cut these with a 60W CO2 Laser at 90% Power, moving at 6mm per second to get those melty, smooth edges! And there you have it, a crapload of corner blocks! The Screws are Low Profile Socket Head M5 Screws in 60mm (for bottom) and 8mm (for the top). Then I broke out the trusty M5 tap for the top 6mm Corner Blocks of each stack. The bottom 60mm screw slides through the rubber feet and corner blocks to the threaded block, and the top 8mm screw will only hold the lid on. Speaking of the Rubber Feet. These are Penn-Elcom F1693 and are 1" Diameter x 0.375" High. Of course, I had to spend some time peeling the protective paper off of all the little corner blocks! And now, it's time to design the panels. Thanks to formfactor.org for their motherboard mounting measurements and I/O Shield placement. Again, for those that care: 70% Power at 14mm per second cuts the 3mm black acrylic. If it flexes too much, I'll likely go thicker for some pieces. Here's what's left after you peel the paper. The static in my shop is rough this time of year. The dust cling should dissipate after the acrylic sits for a while. I almost forgot to tap the holes for the #6-32 Motherboard Risers. I laser cut the holes to 2.66mm (+/-.01mm) After you stack the rubber foot, the 3mm acrylic bottom, Eight (8) 6mm thick corner blocks, the 60mm screw threads right into the top block. Here's another view with all four of the corners (and some panels) installed. Then you just slide the 3mm side panels into the grooves in the corner blocks. Here, the panels are all installed with the black 12mm red ring power switch. In another version I tried honeycomb ventilated side panels and moved the Power Switch up a little on the front. Then, I put the I/O Shield and Motherboard in. Putting the lid on finishes phase one of the enclosure. It is usable, but, I have other things left to try. List of improvements to work on: RGB lighting to light corner block pillars and interior. Laser cutting filter material for behind holes in acrylic. Like everything in my life of ADD, things and interests are ever changing!
