Yes, I’m a laser cutter addict. No, I’m not really sorry.
This mini PC model was born slightly out of necessity. I teach Computer Hardware (high school age) which is usually a very hands-on class. In COVID times that’s not possible, but I couldn’t let it be entirely virtual so I designed and cut these mini PC models for my students. Each kid gets one to use as an aid while they learn all the parts and will keep it at the end of class.
The pieces come apart and attach in a few places with velcro and the wires are simulated using plastic lanyard. (Aside: I’ve learned there’s a lot of way to refer to that stuff!)

It’s not perfect and it was really hard to stop adding stuff, but it was pretty fun and the kids are enjoying them!
