Elementary OS is a computer operating system built on the Linux kernel. It is designed to run on any relatively new 32- and 64-bit desktop or laptop. The main aim of this project was to showcase their operating system, Elementary OS, in an attempt to drive additional publicity towards their project and cause.
The main part of the existing chassis is assembled from six CNC machined LM25 heat treated aluminium castings and four tubes that are produced from carbon fiber. The chassis is hand built and final assembly takes place in a bench mounted jig, this assembly is then bonded together with high performance structural adhesive.
SolidDesign brought performance, quality, and precision to the design through minimization of part breaks, simplification of profile, and increased exterior durability. The design used a single extruded aluminum section for the main housing structure. By eliminating the amount of visible part breaks, the exterior of the product subtly elevated the aesthetic, streamlining the overall form into a strikingly slim desktop computer.
The design team introduced an interchangeable facade, which provides a cool touch, LED power button at the front of the enclosure. With non-slip pads that raises the computer ensures continuous and effective cooling, for use in all types of environments.
