Main mount is revised, errors corrected, holes opened for servo controller and IR adapters. IMU mount is revised, smaller holes, better mount stand. IMU cap is created and added Added standalone mount for IR adapter

First of all please note that files miniitx1.stl, miniitx2.stl are based on the thing http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:24270. I could not print the original part as a whole, so i redesigned it in tinkercad as two objects. I glued them together later, to form the mini-itx stand.

The imu.stl file is used to mount an imu unit (http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1263). It needs a cap to be finalized, the first reason i have marked this as work in progress.

Mount3B.stl is the newest version of a mount that can hold several components. I have not printed it yet, but i am very confident that it is much better from the "3A" version that i use now. This is the second reason i have marked this as work in progress.

Mount3B can hold:

1st floor:

  1. IR Distance Adapter (http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=2&product_id=1101_0)
  2. Same as (1)
  3. Servo controller (http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=11&product_id=1066_0)

2nd floor: PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 (http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=0&product_id=1018_2)

3rd floor: M4-ATX power supply (http://www.cartft.com/catalog/il/903)
