3d printable case? other cases?

Got my H2. I'd love to print a case for it- I dislike plex cases for a few reasons. Has anyone designed a case or has it put in openscad?

Alternatively, any other cases on the market that fit? I don't know if this is some sub-mini-ITX footprint or anything.

The form factor of H2 is not compatible with ITX, but you can download DXF files for the cases from Hardkernel site. You could customize your own case with it.

Cool, how will it be put together with top cover? PCB support?

Still working on it. Probably a snapfit cover, you can see one of the screw holes to mount the PCB, and the side facing the lower right has two slots to put M3 nuts in (there are two more on the far side).

Took me a lot of time to design the "outlet notches" piece.

How does the back panel fit ODROID-H2?

That's what I was talking about the 'notches'. That's the piece that sits on its own to the left. I iterated through about a dozen pieces to make it fit perfectly.

Just uploaded it:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3289428 Odroid H2 Sled

not an enclosure, just a sled. keeps it off the desk and keeps the wires safer.
I have included STEP files for assembly to help others thinking of designing their own.

I like it! It fits a 2.5" drive underneath?

I just printed the last revision of the lid for mine. I'll try to get pics and files up soon.

wow! love it. I'm not going to admit to the acrylic sled I made that used double stick tape to hold the drives. Was trying too hard to have the stack of H2s slide out the back with ethernets in the front for mounting on top of a network switch. This idea of sliding up out the top is way cleaner. one hopefully friendly amendment: put a large whole under the lower disk for added air flow in a stack, and reduce material costs.

edit: perhaps flip the design so the disks are over the CPU's heat sync so one can slide out a node and replace the ram without removing disks.

@boverby That's great. Working a holder for the rtc battery into the standoff nearest it would be the only improvement I could imagine for it. I never like the idea of the battery being able to flop around.

I would love for a new case, I really hate these "puzzle style" cases. I'd be willing to pay up to $50 for a small, solid, non-transparent case with room for me to mount a 92mm fan inside of the case (no hard drive mounts needed).

@cdu13a, I agree. Just after the pictures I used double sided tape to secure it to the base. Wires are just long enough to lay flat under the audio and out of the way.

I think it is somewhere between 1.5 and 2kg of petg when I have printed the last blades.

Well worth it for a nerd like me. :)

Was it a one-piece print or are multiple pieces glued together?

It is a lot of different pieces. Each bay is a single piece plus a small cable management piece on the back and a small tag on the front to indiciate which bay it is.
Each blade consists of a base and 4 walls plus some small other pieces. The rack ears are one piece. Held together by 4 m4 threaded rods with nuts in each end.

You can see exactly how the pieces are on the thingiverse link.

No glue they are screwed together.
