How to Design and Build a Laser-Cut Computer Case with Plywood

We’ve all heard of people designing their own computers, but even the cases?

Hardcore builders of custom computers don’t settle for anything storebought, not even the case. By using laser-cut plywood, you can create a computer case that’s durable, heat resistant, and of course stylish!

A Totally Unique Experience

By customizing everything from the motherboard to the exterior finish, computer-builders can create a computer that functions perfect for all of their needs and desires. Not to mention that plywood computer cases have a certain high-quality aesthetic to them!

Building with Lasers

First things first, assemble your tools. Not only will you need laser-cutting tools, you’ll also need some kind of software that enables you to create designs on your computer and issue those designs as commands for your laser-cutting tools to follow.

Next, start designing. Your case is going to need a mounting plate. That should be your first design priority followed by cooling vents and panel connectors.

After you’ve finished designing these mechanical bits, the hard work is over. All that’s left to design is the top, bottom, and side panels, which can all be much less detailed than the other pieces if you so desire.

Then, send the signal to your cutting tool, cut your pieces, and start assembling your custom computer case!

Conclusion

Nothing says, “custom-built computer,” quite like a laser-cut computer case filled with hand-selected materials. Now you can show off to your friends when they’re bragging about their custom-built computers in store-bought cases.

Not to mention, yours is guaranteed to look the best because you made it yourself.
