Replaceable Covers Information for the Intel® NUC


Product Information & Documentation



Most Intel® NUC products have replaceable top chassis covers.

You can either replace the cover with one from our Intel Innovation Partner GoRite, which offers covers with features like:

  • VGA and DVI connectors
  • Wireless charging
  • Extra USB ports 

Or you can create a cover.

How do I create a cover?

System integrators and end users can use a 3-D printer to create a customized design. You can use a 3-D printer to:

  • Create a cosmetic (nonfunctional) cover with a personalized logo (ideal for product differentiation and branding).
  • Create a taller customized cover that provides headroom to add third-party hardware features:
    • Extra ports, such as RS232 COM ports or USB ports, by connecting to onboard headers
    • SDXC card readers
    • TV tuners
    • Cameras
