Hi all!

I didn't post here for some time, so I decided to share one of the things, I've been working on recently.
In short, Tenuis is a prototype of a miniITX based system, made of aluminium and solid walnut. It's designed as a living room PC, or, as in my case at the moment ,as a general use computer, sitting next to my desk. It can house as mentioned, any miniITX board, full size graphics card up to 190mm long, nimiITX PSU, two HDDs/SSDs, and slot loader optical drive. Not for hardcore gaming, but it plays D3 at full no problem, if you as me .

Few progress photos I took occasionally:

how to in ̶̶̶7 steps:

step 1. sketch



step 2. sketch more,
figuring out smallest possible dimensions, components positioning and materials calculation,



step 3. quick model to confirm,



step 4. get some walnut



step 5. make chassis parts and assemble,













step 6. add walnut (step 4) and paint it black (you cannot go wrong with black )







step 7. stuff it with components to make it work and show off


... next time
