[Scratch Build] - Obsidian (3D Printed!)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
OBSIDIAN

Here is my build log for a new media center pc I am putting together. I have 3D printed the entire case in an mITX form factor and will be using relatively median parts to make a decent media center for my living room.

I started with the 3D printing process of course. After many hours and many attempts to come out with a perfect (mostly) looking part, here are the results of the case. Sexy eh? thumb.gifbiggrin.gifClick for Photos! (Click to show)





I did not design the case, however I did modify it. All parts are printed in ABS. The lighter shade of black is standard ABS and the darker black is a Premium ABS. I found it provided a very nice accent. In the center is the power button, which will have a white ring around it.
Inside you'll see a lowered tray for the ssd to hide under the motherboard, the connection for the power supply, and motherboard mounts. Those will change as I wont need that much screw protruding upwards.

Inside will be the following:
CPU: AMD A10-7700K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock FM2A78M-ITX+ Mini ITX FM2+ Motherboard
Cooler: Scythe SCKZT-1000 24.8 CFM CPU Cooler
Ram: 2x4GB PC3-12800U - nothing special lol
Storage: Samsung SSD
Power Supply: picoPSU-160-XT + 192W Adapter Power Kit

Parts will be arriving soon and building will commence. photos to follow!

Let me know what you think so far!

The bottom of the case is broken where the feet are. What happened?

That corner had a layer peel up. The bottom piece design is extremely hard to print and that piece is the first attempt printing that design. It will be reprinted as I don't like it peeling up. I superglued the layer a bit for now to keep the layer down

Motherboard and ram are in! Installed the power switch and the ssd is underneath in the little cubby. Cable management complete! however, i see there being a potential issue with the power switch leads interfering with the cpu cooler mount. any ideas there?

Progress? I've done a little 3d printing myself, but nothing this big!

I have! Everything is installed an running. I will post some pics up soon. The power switch leads just barely fit with being bent to the side. I'm actually in the process of printing another case. This one was 100% designed by me

If you need any help printing anything, Let me know, I might be able to help I offer a 3D printing service on OCN and currently printing a case myself. See project "Verticality" in my sig smile.gif

edit : since it's ABS, you could acetone vapor bath your parts for an epic finish smile.gif
