PINE64 Acrylic Open Enclosure
#6
I should mention, I wanted to go with a bit thicker than a 1/8" (3.17mm) acrylic piece, but the length of the threaded part of the standoffs stymied me on this. The male-side threaded part is only 6mm, so if I got a 1/4" (6.34mm) acrylic piece the standoff hex screw wouldn't reach all the way through.

If you wanted to get slightly more complicated, you could go with any thickness of acrylic you like, and just make sure you get the bottom standoff screws as female on both ends instead of m/f. That way you can run a regular screw (of an appropriate length) into the top and bottom of the unit. So it'd end up looking like this:

******
Male screw (down through the acrylic piece into the standoff)
______

Top acrylic piece
______

1" m/f standoff screw  (or however long you like based on how much headroom you want/need) with the receive male side pointed up to receive the top screw
______

Pine64
______

8mm f/f standoff screw
______

Male screw (up through the acrylic piece into the standoff)

******

Adding whatever washers and whatnot you like between any of the junctions.

This process will work only for single units. If you want to stack more than one, you would need to either stick to 1/8" acrylic and use m/f standoffs, or find a m/m screw to join each layer.
