{Scratch build} Acrylic sff case for upcoming build

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
So hey guys, i thought i would share a case that i just finished cutting at work with laser cutter. Its a 27 cm tall and 28 cm wide also 18 cm deep. Whys i did 18 cm deep...? I had a scythe fan controller laying around so i thought why just add it to this case and also this case is ATX psu compactible. 2x120 mm in front and going to redo top panel because i dont know why but on bots 120mm fans misaligned some of the holes for mounting fans. Also USB front panel holes is a bit too small. So here's the pics and also it has name: Mr Mini Minister
( yeah its a red acrylic, the only one i had laying around also so maybe later gonna paint it or wrap in something like a digital camo)


Oh also for a side ventilation i choose a huge M letter biggrin.gif

Im kinda liking this top panel, it has everything i need smile.gif

That's because you broke the CNC last time you used it biggrin.gif

Anyway, nice design, will you add some mesh behind the letter holes or other plan?

I've started collecting parts to build a 3D printer, will take some time, but it should be interesting to play with.

If you can get the filters in some contrast color it would look very nice (black or white). I actually kind of like the bright red color, red, black and white are nice together, but I guess you are going to paint it?

My CNC is feeling a bit lonely, haven't used it in a few weeks now, besides that I think it's fine smile.gif but I think it will not be happy once I get a 3D printer up and running.

Your case, you decide smile.gif .. With the cad files, cheap acrylic and access to a laser you can quickly make a new one if you don't like it. There are so many vinyl designs and paint colors.

I will be happy with the 3D printer if it works, but I think my CNC router will not be so happy with the lack of attention. These machines are like girlfriends biggrin.gif

I still have one square meter of that red acrylic leftover, and i think it would be enough for one more case like this biggrin.gif Yeah pretty much tech things are like girlfriends biggrin.gif Just ran into one big question, to combine all parts with L type aluminium profile or make some square pieces from anoter plastic and glue them all, or just screw them trough thoose plastic pieces smile.gif thats kinda dilema that left to me biggrin.gif
