You could use two pieces of plexi to make a SSD case. Mount the PCB onto some thin (eg 3mm) plexi then use some thicker plexi for the top. Screw both pieces directly together, just use a router to take off some material from the top piece to allow room for the PCB.

Once that's done you could install a LED, laser etch a logo onto the plexi, etc. Just an idea.

^^This sounds awesome,plus then you'll have more room for water cooling thumb.gif

It would be fun to try.

That would be easier. May play with it both ways. But I think plexi underneath the cover would look more "factory" than on top.

Thanks! I've got a smaller logo version I need to try out also. Coming soon....

I've never done anything special with drives before. This will be a first for me. But they are begging to be modded. Who am I to refuse?

Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but....I'll take it!

The glass brick of SSD's. smile.gif That would be pretty cool. Nice idea. I could stack them both together and cover them with the thicker top. To give myself some margin for error, I'd probably try it with a 3/4 inch thick acrylic top....and try my luck at routing at a rectangle for the PCB. I'm assuming my wood routing bits would work on acrylic? If I don't want to try routing a thick piece, I could build it up with smaller pieces where I've just cut out rectangles for the PCB. That would work also.

I thought you might like these anodized pink sheets I found on Inventables. They're only half a millimeter thick so you can't use them to build anything very rigid, but they can be good for decoration if you get creative.

Chris I don't claim any vast knowledge about routing acrylic, but I found an upspiral straight bit that seems to work pretty good. (double flute) Some of the single flute wood bits I haven't had much luck with.
High speed worked best for me.

All right. It's time to test paint some fans. But first, I need to pick a pink paint. Say "pick a pink paint" three times really fast...puh-lease. My powder was prevoiusly picked, but I plan to pursue pink paint for plastic parts.

Any-who.,.,..I'm actually going to have one more small batch of parts that I use the same Rosette Pink powder on. Small things like faceplates, SSD casings, etc. That works for anything aluminum. I can have that powdercoated. But there will be some plastic parts that also need to receive the "pink treatment", so I need to find a pink paint that is a good match. And fans will be the major plastic part that gets painted.

I started by heading to my local Hobby Lobby and picking up all kinds of shades of pink and flourescent pink paint.





I didn't shy away from picking up some of the smaller tubes of paint. It's a heavier medium, and I would probably never brush this on to fans for fear of not getting it evenly spread....but I can always thin it down and put it in a spray gun if I find a tube of pink that is the best match. I decided to put down spots of color on a black piece of cardboard, since the main thing I'll paint is the fans, and those are black.

I started with the two samples that were rattle cans.....





Then used a brush to paint circles of color for the rest of the paint samples....






and a second coat and third for some spots. I really looked like a pre-schooler at this point with all my bowls of paint out and circles of pink on my board. smile.gif





None of the flourescent pinks were anywhere close to what I needed. I didn't even get out a UV light to try them, because they look so off in normal light.

There were several colors that were close....but this one was the closest. It's called Medium Magenta and is from Liquitex. It also had a very cool finish to it. Nice paint.





In the case....





Liquitex is actually available in rattle cans also....so now I just need to go find some. Hobby Lobby didn't carry the spray can version. But I believe Michael's does....so I'm off!
