custom parts!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
building the shield for my MB was a bit of a trick but one thing that helped was that I found a pdf of the manual online and opened up a page that had a diagram of the board on it, (mounting holes, sockets, the works) and scaled it to actual size and built my first test shield on top of that... The first shield was made from board that I just printed the shield on and cut out with an exacto blade. I tweaked it and had it cut from acrylic... tweaked a bit more then had the final version cut from aluminum... Hope that at least gives you some ideas on moving forward with your project.

I didn't even think about printing it off and cutting out of cardboard. I have access to a 36" wide printer at work that can print on card-stock with perfect scaling. Thanks for the tip, I hate when I over think things and overlook the simplest things tongue.gif
