Piñasphere (Asrock Deskmini X300)

Piñasphere is my first fully 3D Printed and modeled project.

I wanted to experiment how far I could get with the design of a Computer case, from the standard that people picture in their mind when you talk about a PC, a boxy shape, now it's more like a functional desk sculpture.

Even though it is watercooled, it is also small 218mm for 168mm less than 5 litres, and weighs about 2 Kgs, it can sit on almost any desk, the base also has a 75 x75 Vesa mount compatible hole pattern.

I didn't paint it because I wanted to reach a point in which it looked good that way.

The copper parts are made out of PLA filament, the rest of the case is Petg, the black Petg of the case is Recycled Pet because I wanted to try out the greener options I had within my budget.

The design allows for it to be used as an open air case or enclosed like a "normal" case, I like it both ways, it takes some seconds and you can change it on the fly, no screws just twist and "pop" the white domes out and it's open.

Right now It is my main PC, I wanted it to work for everything and the specs allow for it within reason, from 3D editing on Blender and Fusion 360 to playing at 1080p.
