It's a neat idea, but you will need a way to pull it free. I've had a few 24 pin plugs that were an atomic *itch to get out. I'd hate to think what this will be like.

Wow so precise it's stuck, madness .

3d printing is something I might consider using at some point if I can't think of a way to fab a complex idea in a diy way, love the cable wrap around piece though, really nice idea, bet those could be sold for a nice price .

You've been pushing the innovation with cables mate, was it you who first did the 24 pin holes for the ATX cable with beto for nice cable upgradability, I think it was the first time I seen it done anyway.

Not sure where this is going but that's how I like it & I'm sure it will rock as always .

Thank you Waynio It was actually a little "to" precise, so i had to shave off 0.25 milimeter of the clamps :P
I was quite proud of the cable manegement in pc-beto, but i think that most people who saw the mod did not really notice, so for this one i am going all in
The next mod is already on the planning board, where I also will use the 3d printer lol

Small update, threw the finished part in the printer this morning before i had to drive to work


So in 7 hours and 110 cm^3 of material, it will be ready for the acid bath!

(not that I need to be, but since this is a public worklog, you must expect personal opinions, right?).

Sorry, but I just don't really see the point of it - if the idea is to hide the "entrance of the cables into the PSU", then why would you want to substitute a nice, black connector with a big, white block?

Would a metal shield, painted black and with nice grommets for the cables to pass through have been a more elegant solution? Of course, it would need some more manual labor to complete, but I envision that the result would be visually nicer than this.

Having said that, I do realize that you're not done yet, so... surprise me?

Can you print wax with that 3D printer? If so you could make aluminium parts using lost wax casting.

The other machine we have prints wax as support material, but that melts away at 90 degrees, so I dont think it will hold the what, 700 degrees it takes to melt aluminium:P

Now what is this? Another update :O



Parts as they looked pulled from the printer!



Again,



And as they look with the support material. You can partly see a little "easter egg" I made here:P



After getting the worst support material off, it looks like this



And this:P



And this xD The more support material I can "break" off, the less the acid have to melt away.
And yeah, I really need to cut my nails!



A little size comparison versus a hand that I found lying around.





And then drop it into the acid bath! Looks tasty right? It aint, and it DON'T smell good lol... Like getting a hedgehog shoved up your nose.



Now lets fast forward 15 hours, and the part is ready to take out!



Clean as a whistle







Pics of the finished part. You wont really see the "Made by pope" inthere, but I thought it was a fun little thing to do, even tough it will be covered up:P And if anyone should steal the case i have proof its mine trololol!



To cover the hole thing up, I cut this plate. The plan is to cut some sort of pattern in it, don´t quite know what yet. I might print this in 3d instead to get a consistant look.



Last but not least, how it sits on the psu.
"But hey, somethings missing?"
Yup, the lower part will be done seperatly. And why this?

The top part house only wires that will run to the motherboard, and the lower part is going out to everything else. Why this is a good idea, I will show in a later update, since its hard to explain

Hope you enjoyd! I have more parts in the printer, so another update is on the way!

Well, the idea behind casting is to create a solid form that will melt away easily when poured over with hot metal. That solid form you wrap in something that will withstand the heat and forms what will become the mold. So, 90 degrees celcius sounds like a fine temperature to me?

The 3D printed stuff is slightly yellowed - is it safe to assume that you will paint those parts later on?

If yes, what does it take to make the paint stick to it? A good plastics primer?

Ahh, I forgot how casting works lol

And paint is sooooo 2010 If I decide to make them another color I will use dye Gives a better result with plastic parts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFif1...eature=related

Will of course make some testing before throwing the parts in

Right now I am just deciding whether to keep the black and white scheme, or go crazy with something like yellow or green
