In anticipation of Intel's Joule System-on-a-Module I had sought out to capitalize on the media storm by getting an enclosure design for the expansion board available to hackers and makers as soon as possible. This didn't go as smoothly as I was hoping.
While Intel had not actually released as thorough of documentation about the exact placement of parts on their the board as I would have liked I've been closely examining what they have released. They were kind enough to specify exactly which parts they were using for externalizing interfaces so I've been rifling through datasheets and applying lessons learned from my other adventures in case design and believe I have something that will fit.
I'd really prefer to test this case immediately but don't have $370 just laying around, at least not yet. If anyone wants to run their 3D printer for a few hours and let me know how it goes I'd appreciate the effort. If Intel would like to send me a "sample" (hint hint) or at least some measurements regarding the placement of the external connectors that would be almost just as good if not a lot better.
I'll be excited to see how the Joule compares to the Jetson TK1. I can print up a case on my 3D-printing impulse-purchased Monoprice Select Mini (thanks for the heads up HaD!) so that's certainly a step in the right direction.
My trial copy of Rhinoceros which is a beautiful piece of software that I would love to be able to afford to someday (hint hint) has expired. I was revising the JouleBox mostly to reinforce the shell from 1mm to a 2mm thickness when this happened. The work was nearly complete but the way it was designed needs some very long (30mm) M2.5 machine screws, here's a link for those:
I've posted the Rhino-native OpenNURBS (.3dm) files with all the guidelines and the latest revision of the model I had before my trial copy expired. If anyone would like to revise it the machine screws I was hoping to use to bolt the case together were supposed to much smaller, maybe 12-16mm, I was shooting for 10mm in my first design but with a 2mm-thick shell that won't be possible.
There might be other revisions that need to happen that I'm not remembering. For those of you who may be trying to print this design best of luck to you. I apologize in advance if I screwed something else up ...
