    Thanks man! :D I wish you could see it irl since this is a typical "it looks better irl" type of build but i can see your point ;D.

    Hehe yea there is some filler and sanding job done on this one ;D.
    I skiped the logo on purpose to still have some element of the 3d-printing in there.

    The thing is since im quite new to the 3d-printing world i used the included software with my printer which has alot of those settings pre programmed. The layer height is 0.15mm and yea if you are not going for the obvious 3d-printed look there is some sanding to be done for sure.

    Thanks man! yea it turned out quite nice :D

    Nice work on the case, good use of the capacity of 3D printing. It's not mentionned in the build log, but what filament are you using? PLA or ABS?

    Great project and final result! I voted for this for mod of the month. However, I hope the paint provides some thermal insulation, because PLA is not the best material choice. Don't get me wrong, I have used PLA in a few builds, but near heatsinks it will not hold its shape for long. You might want to try PETG or annealed modified PLA (HTPLA) for 3d printing parts near hardware that gets hot. There seems to be enough air gap though on this build, so no panel will bow or deform I think, at least not as fast or as easy for eSun PLA+. My blue PLA ITX cover was fine for 2 years, but the deformation near the 24pin happened/was noticeable (without creating any functional issue though) in about 6 months into using the system daily. So keep an eye on the 3d printed panels that get hot air.
