May not exist, but is there such a thing as a Mini ITX I/O Shield for sale on its own? I'm going to be building a case from scratch and would like to just purchase a Mini ITX I/O Shield cutout with the 2 expansion slots already attached. If not, I will just get the Danger Den 7 slot and modify it to only have 2 slots.

you just need AutoCAD/Inventor/Solidworks to edit it , delete as many "slots" you want in the "pattern" option , then reduce the size of the actual part and you are done

you dont need to weld it lol just make the holes yourself

there is an option in Solidworks that lets you flat out the model , so you can print a pattern or give the file to a CNC plasma cutter shop , and done , you just need to do the bends yourself after that

... if you need any help , ill gladly help

Yeah, my dad works at a machine shop and has access to lots of machinery and "scrap metal". I may be getting a stainless steel case if that is what he has left over from some projects gone wrong.
