post #8441 of 22194
I am about to increase the size of the window in my Sth10 case but I have not found a sollution to one specific problem. CaseLabs is using some technic, maybe welding etc. so that there are male M4 threads in the door. This way you can use bolts to attach the window and at the same time the window itself is removable.

The easiest way to increase the size of the window would be ignoring this and just glue the bigger window in place. Unfortunately I want to do this the hard way. So... Basically I would like to do this the same way CaseLabs is doing but I have not found a proper way of doing this. Do you guys have any ideas or suggestions about techniques I should try? I would gladly give a rep+ away for a nice good juicy technique I can use. I will paint the door either way, so finishing won't be a problem.

Thank you! smile.gif

If they are like the inserts in the front, they are pressed into the aluminum. You will need something that provides a few hundred lbs of pressure to do that.

My best advice, barring heavy machinary, is to use JB WELD with some cut/milled stand offs of some time. Hell, you could probably get away with motherboard standoffs.

Yes they are, exactly the same. This much I figured though. I do not have an access of the professional grade machinery so I am looking for some other technique that would give similar end result.

I am assuming you want the visible side of the door without any threads/holes? If not, just go with motherboard standoffs or any small screw/bolt combo as XNine suggested.

Just saw this post over on Reddit about a new case. Thoughts? I'm finding no info about it anywhere else.

Ah that seems right. With a quick bit of Googling I couldn't find any pics from their booth. And since I don't own a CL case yet, I don't frequent this thread.

Here's to hoping we get some more info soon!

This is interesting option. If I understood correctly what you meant, this could be a sollution that solves the problem. At least I got an epiphany and I will definately explore this option. Thank you! Rep+ smile.gif

What about the plastic motherboard standoffs that you just glue in place? If you distribute the load well enough it should work fine. On that note, make a larger plexi piece and use 3M double sided tape/velcro biggrin.gif
