Lego Chassis – Stage One – Part Two

Continued work on the Lego chassis to house the motherboard:

Each side requires a different approach due to inconsistencies in the metal base plates shape and structure.

As well as the very much ‘mixed bag’ of Lego pieces we are working with…

I expect the build an access panel or door over these ports eventually…

This side could use some further strengthening from cross pieces…

The chassis is more or less sufficiently complete to move on to other things.

Next will be installing Puppy ‘Wary’ Linux and installing it on my old Dell laptop.

 

Lego Chassis – Stage One – Part One

Began to build a Lego chassis around the motherboard.

The metal base plate that the motherboard is mounted on provides additional strength to the chassis, but brings its own challenges to the build.

I worked to keep all the various ports and expansion slot panels open and accessible for now, to allow for connections.

This side was pretty straightforward…

But this end was particularly challenging…

The bottom has some cross beams for support, which will be expanded upon to incorporate the primary drive system.

Weirdly enough, I dreamed up an idea for a tri-wheeled system that I may try to assemble for this, if it doesn’t work out I may order some much larger single wheels. We will see…
