Tenuis

FINAL PICS
.
.
.

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

pretty sessy little build you got there mate. This build definitely makes me a little jealous and I'll explain why... For the past few months I've been telling my girlfriend I would build her a new comp for home use, and if you gave her this she would probably love you more than me!

Congrats man, very classy little system

For something so simplistic in essence, that is so fantastic. I love it. I really does remind me of a high end audio equipment aesthetic. Good job. Would be nice to have a set of speakers or similar for the unit in the same style

Well I appreciate the vote of confidence! I agree with what others have said though, my first thought on this was that it would look really sweet as a taller floor unit to house any audio gear.

I just came back to look at it again and I'm still loving it. Truly a gorgeous piece of worksmanship. I actually have a design already modeled in Solidworks for a mini-itx build that is fairly similar, but seeing yours completed is still astounding. Aesthetically the black and walnut just work so well!
