Default OBT / BC1 mini

Hi everyone!

We had some requests regarding a mini version of the Open Benchtable. The designers got to work and came up with a design that is significantly smaller than the original benchtable. It uses the same pushpins, thumbscrews and brackets so it's backwards compatible. It only supports SFX power supplies and mini ITX motherboards to make it as compact as possible.

Currently this is just a proof of concept. Depending on the interest, we can consider doing a small production run.

Let us know what you think!



---------

Price-wise it would probably be very similar to the existing OBT as the main restriction is on volume. Any costs we could save on material because of the size would be offset by lower production volume.

I would rather do a mATX one with proper PSU support.

With reduced size I would position either the storage devices on the SATA side of the motherboard instead near the legs to have again full PSU support. Or put the supports at a 90° angle of their current position, but the latter would require a new support to secure the PSU...

Legs will be shorter in height, no matter the length, a ATX PSU wouldn't fit under height wise.
