MOUNT YOUR MAC MINI UNDER A
BOOKCASE/SHELF/CEILING/DESK/LOFT BED/ALCOVE/ET CETERA AND

  • SAVE SPACE
  • PROTECT YOUR MAC AGAINST LIQUID (IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES)
  • REDUCE THE ACCUMULATION OF DUST

Materials and methods

MATERIALS:

- YOUR CHOICE!
- I USED PLA

RECOMMENDED:

- FAST PRINT
- PVA SUPPORT
- 50% INFILL ATTACHMENT PARTS, 2,4mm WALL/GROUND/TOP PANEL
- 30% INFILL DISTANCE PIECES, 1,2mm WALL/GROUND/TOP PANEL

METHODS:

CHOOSE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOUR MAC AND YOUR MOUNTING SURFACE:

- THERE ARE ALREADY 10mm FROM MAC UP TO THE DISTANCE PIECES, SO
- 45mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 35mm.STL" = 60mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE
- 55mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 45mm.STL" = 70mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE
- 65mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 55mm.STL" = 80mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE
- 75mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 65mm.STL" = 90mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE
- 85mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 75mm.STL" = 100mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE

THIS INDEX ALREADY INCLUDING 5mm FOR A SCREW HEAD HIGHT OF 4mm + 1mm WASHER:

- THE "SD ON OFF LIGHT FRONT LEFT SIDE" CUT-OUT GIVES THIS 5mm BACK
- A 100mm SCREW FROM THE INDEX IS REALLY A 100mm SCREW

SLICER:

ALWAYS ADD DISTANCE ON Z AXIS!

- IF YOU ARE USING 65mm, 75mm, 85mm, 95mm,.. SCREWS
- IF YOU WANT A SPECIAL DISTANCE OUTSIDE THE SYSTEM
- IF YOU WANT TO SCREW DEEPER THAN THE 15mm INDEX DRILL HOLE

NEVER REDUCE THE VALUE!

- THE CUT-OUT SECTION OF THE DISTANCE PIECE WILL NOT MATCH ANYMORE
- THERE WILL BE A GAP

- MAKE SURE THE CUT OUT IS ON TOP

REAL CONDITIONS AND G.CODE FINE TUNING - BASED ON THE INDEX LINE:

- 75mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 65mm.STL" = 90mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 75mm D = "D ... 65mm.STL" > 65mm.GCODE = 90mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE

5mm LONGER SCREWS = 5mm MORE DISTANCE OR DEEPER DRILL HOLE:

- 80mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 65mm.STL" = 95mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 80mm D = "D ... 65mm.STL" > 70mm.GCODE = 95mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE, OR
- 75mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 65mm.STL" = 95mm SCREWS - 20mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 75mm D = "D ... 65mm.STL" > 65mm.G.CODE = 95mm SCREWS - 20mm DRILL HOLE

1mm LESS SCREW HEAD HIGHT = 1mm MORE DISTANCE OR DEEPER DRILL HOLE:

- 76mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 65mm.STL" = 90mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 76mm D = "D ... 65mm.STL" > 66mm G.CODE = 90mm SCREWS - 15 mm DRILL HOLE, OR
- 75mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 65mm.STL" = 90mm SCREWS - 16mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 75mm D = "D ... 65mm.STL" > 65mm G.CODE = 90mm SCREWS - 16mm DRILL HOLE

2mm DEEPER DRILL HOLE = 2mm LESS DISTANCE:

- 73mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 55mm.STL" = 90mm SCREWS - 17mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 73mm D = "D ... 55mm.STL" > 63mm.GCODE = 90mm SCREWS - 17mm DRILL HOLE, OR
- 75mm DISTANCE AND LONGER SCREWS REDUCED TO 92mm

1mm SHORTER SCREWS (CHEAP SCREWS) = 1mm LESS DISTANCE OR SHORTER DRILL HOLE:

- 74mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 55mm.STL" = 90mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 74mm D = "D ... 55mm.STL" > 64mm.GCODE = 90mm SCREWS - 15mm DRILL HOLE, OR
- 75mm DISTANCE = "DISTANCE ... 65mm.STL" = 90mm SCREWS - 14mm DRILL HOLE, EXPLICIT:
- 75mm D = "D ... 65mm.STL" > 65mm.GCODE = 90mm SCREWS - 14mm DRILL HOLE

SCREWS:

- MAXIMUM SCREW HEAD OUT SIDE DIAMETER: 10mm
- MAXIMUM SCREW DRIVER OUT SIDE DIAMETER: 10mm
- OUT SIDE DIAMETER OF THE HOLE: 10,4mm
- LENS HEAD SCREWS RECOMMENDED

WASHERS:

- OUTSIDE DIAMETER: 15mm
- INSIDE DIAMETER: 5mm
- HEIGHT: 1mm

MAC MINI WITH DRIVE:

- PRINT A MIRROR OF THE "LIGHT SIDE" PART, INSTEAD OF THE "FRONT LEFT SIDE" PART

POST PRINT:

- SAND THE JUNCTURES

- IF YOU WANT THE HIGH-END VERSION
- HERE A GOOGLE BLOGGER LINK
- TO A GERMAN DESCRIPTION

DRILLING RECOMMENDATIONS:

- WOOD: ALWAYS 2-3mm LESS THAN THE BOARD ALLOWS. ITΒ΄S STABLE WITH 17-18mm
- WALL: 52mm DRILL HOLE, GOOD SCREW ANCHORS WITH 8mm OUTSIDE DIAMETER, 50mm

SCREW ORDER:

- THE LAST SCREWS ARE ALWAYS THE "LIGHT FRONT LEFT SIDE" SCREWS
- THE FIRST SCREWS ARE ALWAYS THE "ON OFF SD SIDE" SCREWS

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED:

- 1) PRINT THE MARKING ARROWS IN A3
- 2) DRILL THE HOLES
- 3) ADJUST YOUR MAC
- >) WITHOUT THE DISTANCE PIECES FIRST!
- 4) ADD THE DISTANCE PIECES
- 5) ATTACH

CONGRATULATIONS!

- YOUR MAC HAS A SHORTCUT
