With 3D Printing becoming more affordable, and a large variety of cheap printers on the market, together with inexpensive filament and free tools to model and print your projects, not to mention millions of free models available literally everywhere, there's no excuse to hold off from investing a little bit of money and time and get your own 3D Printer.

The printer I bought is a Creality CR-10 MAX, which allows printing of large volume objects. It was easy to assemble and so far I like it a lot. The prints stick to the bed very well (too well, might I add). So far I have been using the filament which came with the printer itself (White PLA) but I already bought a variety of other filaments which allow me to print in different colors and with different material types.

Since Thursday I have been getting used to my printer, printed a few various models and finally today started printing my first PC-related object.
It's a LED Strip holder which snaps around a 16mm hard tube and allows the tube to be illuminated from behind.
Once it's done printing, I will also share the final result. Also, all the models I create will be uploaded to be freely used by anyone.

Variant for 30 cm, 15-LED strip, which is wider and longer than the 30-LED strip.

This is a Watercooling reservoir holder for 60mm diameter reservoirs (more specifically the EKWB 250mm X3), but the model is compatible with all other 60mm diameters reservoirs with minor adjustments. It notably has a LED Strip channel which allows you to add a RGB LED Strip, more specifically the Aquacomputer 30-LED, 27.3 cm long RGBpx LED Strip, but again, with minor adjustments it can also hold the 15-LED, 30cm long RGBpx LED strip or any other LED Strip.

This version holds the reservoir very well.

Thank you so much for creating and sharing this. I have been searching Thingiverse for something similar since I figured someone had already done something like this but have had no luck. I did find that Cooler Master had a custom order part but they no longer produce it. Any pics of it installed and water flowing through it?

Not yet, I have no plans to redo my loop in the immediate future, but in the meantime I started making tubing just for fun.
