    Cut The case - Bottom

    Cutting the case is an iteractive task. All the time you have to check if there's something jamming the motherboard. Try to cut as minimum as possible, specially the parts used to hold the case together with screws.  For this project one mounting pole was sacrivfied leaving the other 3 to be used to hold the case.
