This case is now open source.

After successfully building a Modivio xCase, I got hooked to the idea of 3D printing computer cases. So I started designing a similar case that could replace my current HTPC case. My current HTPC setup has a low profile GPU and is powered by a pico-style PSU, so it should support at least that.
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been sketching, drawing and rendering and I believe that I’ve gotten at a phase where the project is ready to be shared with the community. So here we go.
- Strong 3D printed bezel, printed in one piece with multiple colors available.
- Side panels are laser cut out of acrylic or wood.
- Low profile, double slot GPU allows for potent gaming builds.
- Don’t like the noisy low profile coolers? Replace the fans by 80mm fans which are 15mm or even up to 25mm thick (Aiming at 25mm fan support for MSI low profile cards).
- Large CPU cooler clearance allow for high power CPU's, with or without GPU.
- Dimensions: 92mm x 200mm x 245mm, totaling 4.5L
- Mini ITX motherboard
- 70mm CPU cooler clearance (Noctua L12S compatible)
- Support for one 2.5” HDD up to 15mm high
- Optional front USB and audio bay
- Supported PSU’s: any pico-style PSU (recommended are HDPlex 160 DC-ATX, Dynamo Mini or Mini-box PicoPSU 160xt)
- External AC-DC or internal with the HDPlex 160 AC-DC (only when not using a GPU)
