Ideas so far:
-Mini-ITX case (yes the whole thing!)
-Cable organizers
-Fan Grills
-Case feet

Right angle ATX 24 pin adapters.
Right angle 8 pin 12volt adapters.
Always a pain to have these coming from in front of the board.

These! I still can't believe they are not being mass produced in china yet! imagine how clean the cabling would be with 90deg connectors!

Awesome printer by the way dude!

I think there's some difficulty to be wokred out with how the connector wires up internally.

Good suggestion, I'll have to try to make some! Or maybe I can come up with a good cover that could clip onto the stock straight connector that has the cables exit at 90.


If anyone has a 3D file they would like to see printed send me the file as an .STL and I'll see what I can do. MakerBot gave me the printer and bunch of filament so I'm just looking for something interesting to print.


Edit: If anyone has a model of a Subaru WRX they would be willing to share (and possibly modify to help with printing) I would be willing to send them a printed car. PM me if you are interested and have a model.

3d filigree fan guard? I've been wanting to draw up a complex gear fanguard forever.
Maybe a spin res insert for the Aqualis.
I'd love to dig up something for printing, but I don't have the time to repair the surfaces/etc.
Maybe some blocks that let you mount stuff at odd angles, like acrylic corner cubes.
180 degree g1/4 bend fitting?

Have a pic of what your working on?

I had an 02 bug eye like that (just a WRX not an STI) but if someone could find a 2007 WRX Wagon I would be forever in their debt!

Not envious of your 3D printer much

I don't know what size items you can make but "Fonne" on this forum has made some water cooling parts from POM although he has machined them not printed them, can you print parts this big from a suitable material?

U can but I am certain machining will be better for water cooling than printing.

Yaka is right you could print water cooling parts but I'm not sure of the chemical resistance of the ABS/PLA plastic and as I have found out the hard way, its a pain to tap.

well 3d printing is just for one thing .... fast prototyping , not mass production , after the testing and all the trials , u could send it to someone who can make mold injection moldings and start producing

Incorrect.

Well partly anyway. You wouldn't use it to build thousands of parts there are cheaper easier ways of doing that. But the other end of the market (high value low part count) it is used already.

What kind of build area do you have RoboDuck?

would you seriously consider using printed parts for water cooling I've machined acetal parts?

It would be great to print vga custom backplates for example!
What an impressive machine... what is the average time of printing one object?
