Cubieboard Tower Case by viresx Apr 1, 2013


I've designed a case for my cubieboard. Top case is for Cubieboard, bottom one for SATA HDD (you can use USB->SATA adapter from A-Data CH93 or SATA connector from Cubieboard).

Yes, cubieboard2 is built on the same PCB, so it is 100% compatible :)

I assume this will work with the cubieboard2 as well?

Bottom parts needs to be printed with support (45* recommended).
HDD Case can be used separately. You should glue some soft material inside for HDD safety. It is designed to fit AData CH-93 electronics (for USB) or SATA cable.
This two cases can be placed on top of each other and connected with long screws or parts of 3mm filament.
Power button is part of 3mm filament, melted on one side.

### Version v2:
- borders thickness reduced to 4mm.
- bottom of case reduced by 2mm (in version V1 I couldn't connect external ports for GPIO)
- printing time reduced to 60% by modifications above :)
- bigger holes for HDMI, USB-OTG, audio and IR
- HDD case adjusted to Cubieboard case.

This case is totally awesome, thanks man :))

Did you consider adding screwholes for the disk?

Are there source files available for this design?
I want to make another section to the tower to house a http://www.ebay.nl/itm/2807674...

I printed this and ended up with a useless mirrored version :o(

Why mirrored? I think these STLs are ok.
Maybe you need to adjust endstops and motors in your printer?
Are other models printed correctly?

Have you considered making an alternative to this case using right angle SATA cables? they are cheap and would allow the cubieboard case to be stackable

viresx on Apr 11, 2013 said:

Yes, but this cables are too long to use it in my situation. I have more space on top. However, if you need this type of case I can upload skp file or redesign it. Will you test it? :)

Main case (version v2) is ready!
HDD case will be available tomorrow.

An idea for v3.0: additional room for a HDD/SSD

viresx on Apr 5, 2013 said:

Bottom part is external case for HDD :)

Cubieboard should be mounted on top of HDD with long screws for cooling, but you can print cubie-top and 2 bottoms and have one big case.

sweet :D i've been holding off on making an IDE case, thanks a lot for this!

Nice to hear that :) You need to wait.. maybe a week for me to complete design and test it.
