Guides and Discussion

CAD programs

3D files:

References:
  • FormFactors.org Official specs for various form factors, like mini-ITX, ATX power supplies, etc.
  • Protocase Resources Useful guidelines for designing sheet metal enclosures

Manufacturing:
  • SheetMetal.Me Terminology, tables, diagrams, and other useful info related to sheet metal fabrication
  • Protocase Blog
  • Build Prototypes w/ Dan Gelbart Great video overview of the process of manufacturing a sheet metal enclosure (it's aimed at prototyping but most of it is similar to production)
  • LTT Custom Gaming Case Not as technical as the above video, but a good overview of the manufacturing process with equipment more typical of small-medium production volumes.
