Lego Computer Case Mod
So, I decided I wanted to build something, and I wanted a small computer to use as a web/development server. What better to do than make it out of Legos?
Using MLCAD, I started working on some preliminary models. MLCAD is basically a primitive CAD program for Lego bricks. It uses the LDraw parts library, and you can export your models to purchase the parts at BrickLink. It’s a bit buggy, but it’s the best software out there for this sort of thing.
MLCAD final perspective renderAs it turns out, Lego bricks are a little under 8mm square, and 9.6mm tall. This makes them remarkably perfect for a number of computer components… although, as it turned out, not perfect for them all.
