So after moving to Michigan from NY, (You people are too damn cheery) and switching to a SMALLER desk, (Not like I wanted to >.>) I needed more space for room to put STUFF! I also had switched to an Intel NUC from a laptop, for a super compact PC upgrade; along with getting a 40 inch TV for a monitor because i'm losing my sight.... in my twenties......yaaaaay.....
Point is, even with a compact PC I need as much space as possible. I could've used the VESA mount that came with it, but dammit I wanna see where I'm plugging crap into!
So without jibber jabbering on further, this is the Rugged NUC Wall Mount! This prints with minimal supports (I used custom supports in Cura) in less than 4 hours with 3 perimeters and 20% infill. I designed this for the Bean Canyon model, with the HDD/SSD Slot. I'm sure other Intel NUCs will slide in fine if dimensions are similar.
Rear I/O is oriented towards the bottom, with power switch and front USB Ports oriented to the top. Ventilation is cleared by the mount, as well the MicroSD slot. The mounts side walls are 5mm thick, as to provide some protection from random elements such as bumps, scrapes, dings, a vengeful kitty, etc.
So yeah, if you have a NUC, give this a try!
