I usually crafed everything handmade, but this is a fully 3D printed Scratch build from 0 to 100%.I had to learn as I progressed on how and what I could really do with 3D editing and 3D printing, but in the end the results payed off.

Piñasphere is my first fully 3D Printed and modeled project, before it I followed the handmade path.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, beside very few exceptions most computer cases are based on a squared shape be it a closed or open air design.It is asymmetric, because I love the movement given by the change in the lines, now it's more like a functional desk sculpture.Even though it is watercooled, it is also a SFF Case 218mm for 168mm less than 5 litres, and weighs about 2 Kg, 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.The I/O connectors were the hardest part to implement in a pleasant way within the curved lines of the domes.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.

La verdad es que no es mi tipo de caso, pero ha quedado muy chulo. Tienes mi 9. ¿Refrigera bien?

Gracias, perdón por la demora en la respuesta.

La CPU siempre permanece por debajo de los 60 °C incluso en verano, los SSD M.2 siempre por debajo de los 45 °C.
Cuando la CPU está por debajo de los 45°C, hay que mirar los LEDs o el ventilador para saber si está encendido.
Si la CPU supera los 50 ° C, el ventilador es audible, pero nunca ruidoso.
