    I've seen a few home brew SLS, and it would definitely be an epic worklog. I'm not sure the print quality is quite there yet compared to the commercial versions. Maybe I'll just have to move to SLA as a stop gap. They are definitely more reasonable in cost (at least vs. SLS).

    Since a HDPlex 400w AC-DC will be used going forward, I decide to design an external 'case' for it to match. The design should allow for adequate cooling from all sides. What you see below is the final print ready version.

    Sure, why not? Haha, nothing is safe! It it exists, it can be modded.

    Thanks! Yeah, progress is still a little slow, but it is progress just the same.

    Believe me, I know as well. I've always been busy with a project of some kind, even if it wasn't related to computer modding. However, I've now circled back around, and well, here we are!

    So, another very small update here. I received my low profile PCIE connectors, and with the help of some PCB board and more 3D printing, I've got a cool idea for a single power connector. I'll see if I can make progress on that this weekend.

    Neat. :D Although I've had some single connectors that threatened to rip off the pcb they were so tight.
    Also; the gpu maker needs to add a space in the name. I read that as one word and thought, "ermagerd! Geforcertck!"
