So life does what it does and gets in the way of progress. But I finally got to sit down and design the little bits and pieces of the parts I need printed!
I wanted to keep everything looking as stock as possible on the outside.
But when the panel comes off, everything on the inside has been customized.
From the mobo tray side.
These are what are being printed. PSU shroud and mount. Hard drive mount and panel. Radiator side cover.
All together now. I had to figure out all the small little nooks and crannies that would cause an interference with what I was modeling.
Here is the inside of the PSU shroud. Its going to be hung from the underside of the top of the case where the top mounted fan is located using the fan mounting screws. The shroud will need to cantilever from those mounts with the PSU (kind of). In theory the top case fan will only pull air from the PSU to help keep things cool.
And the side panel that replaces the stock panel. This will hold the 2x 3.5" HDDs with brackets that would be a tool-less release from the cage. The side panel also has a ledge that the PSU shroud will be laying on to help support the shroud (so its only kind of cantilevering).
All together, there will be 7 pieces I need printed. Looking at shapeways right now to print them out for me. But I need to look around to make sure they would be the best fit.Edited by akpoly - 6/15/14 at 10:17pm
