In this contribution we study the Lorentzviolation effects of the minimal standard-model extension on the Casimir force between two parallel conducting plates in the vacuum. Using a perturbative method, we compute the relevant Green's function which satisfies given boundary conditions. The standard pointsplitting technique allow us to express the vacuum expectation value of the stress-energy tensor in terms of this Green's function. Finally, we study the Casimir energy and the Casimir force paying particular attention to the quantum effects as approaching the plates.
