You could easily mock it up in sketchup using the NH-L12S model, and guesstimating heights (usually the heatsinks are like 25-30mm tall)
Someone already modeled the aorus z390i. The Nh-L12s does not fit, due to the heatsink near the IO...
Are you familiar with eagle/kicad? these are the programs people usually use to design pcbs. This ends up with a gerber file that can be sent directly to manufacturers who can print your PCB. Lots of people in the mechanical keyboard subreddit have done this. If its for a computer motherboard, i...
