    With PLA its easy, just have to glue parts together but i have to do some thinking how to put these pieces together. Steel rods is very good idea i have to look into it.

    I use the same block, in black. But I must say that it looks really good in white! Also really like where you're taking this build!

    Love it! :D
    You could use insets like the side grill to put the two halves together. -Say, one on the top and bottom to go with the side one, with an internal ledge that you could tap screws into. That and the above mentioned rods would make a fairly sturdy assembly.
    -If I confuse the heck out of you, let me know. Stuff I say in the morning often doesn't make sense. :lol:

    Cool design, for some reason I've not thought of 3d printing an entire case like this, looks a lot better than I first thought it would. From the title of this build I was expecting it to be horror themed lol: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084787/. Great old film by the way if you've not seen it.

    I have almost all of the design changes done.

    For the top and bottom i did make plates for holding the two parts together.
