Let's do something futuristic.
Cryptocurrency mining, heard of it? There's specialty computer hardware used to hash mathematical algorithms in a distributed network to generate digital money!
This project is to build a frame to sexily mount 10 of these specialty computers to in hopes of cleaning up some messy mining rigs out there.
Speaking of messy rigs, here's a video of some good and some bad examples of the Gridseed ASIC miners. www.youtube.com/watch
In the attached image TheDrawingBoard.jpg you'll see some ideas but I welcome your own input if you believe you've got something that equals win.
Ask questions, let's do this!
Wants:The Gridseed miners measure 95mm in diameter and 70mm tall, so roughly 3.75" D x 2.75" H. I will have mine in hand within a couple weeks, they're just now coming out of China, then I will know the distance between the mounting holes to secure them to the frame.
The power supplies on the lower level of the frame measure (215 x 115 x 50)mm / (8.46 x 4.52 x 1.96)inch（L x W x H）eBay link for more images; http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUPERNIGHT-12V-DC-30A-360W-Regulated-Switching-Power-Supply-for-LED-Strip-Light-/261401107652?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cdcb85cc4
The USB Hub measures 190 x 58 x 28mm, eBay link; http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-2-0-10-Port-Powered-Portable-HighSpeed-External-Hub-Multi-Outlet-Power-Strip-/200994217600?pt=US_USB_Cables_Hubs_Adapters&hash=item2ecc305e80
Let's keep the top plate of the frame within 24" L x 12" W x 0.25" thick acrylic sheet.
The lower frame just needs to be slightlu larger than the power supplies that will sit on it.
The CNC Aluminum struts to separate it should work well in the 3-4" range.
Don't Wants:Put extra mayo on my McChicken sandwich at McDonald's next time, that's some shit I don't like.
- Autodesk Inventor
Additional InformationPlease make all future submissions from flat parts only. This includes the struts.
Laser cutting will be used.
0.0625 inch/1.5875 mm thick aluminum for the mounting plates. 0.25 inch/6.35mm thick aluminum for the separating struts.
Detail, futuristic design and stackable are desired traits in new submissions.

Mini-ITX Computer Case
Hi Everyone! This contest is for the smallest Mini-ITX computer case with the following requirements: -Includes rendering of a mini-itx motherboard -Includes rendering of two nvidia 1080 video card in sli configuration -Enough room for liquid cooling on cpu and video cards including radiator fan(internal or external). -Includes rendering of 800watt SFX-L PSU
Luxury Smartphone Design
We are launching a wireless device company that will produce luxury smartphones. The purpose of this contest is to solicit cool and interesting design ideas as well as to develop an ongoing relationship with one or several designers to help move these products to market quickly and efficiently. We are only interested in the look and feel of the device; engineering will be addressed at a later date. The design submission should include: 1) Model File: in Alias wire file format 2) Rendered Imagery: showing front, back, top, bottom left right and a 3/4 perspective views. Rendered views for front, back, top and bottom can be combined into one or two image files if appropriate. The perspective view must be a separate image. It is encouraged that the rendered images be as realistic as possible and provide enough lighting to show design details. Environment and lighting style is left to the designer.
