  1. The BYOC Project (Build your own Case)

    Nope! It wasn't an April Fools Joke, I'm still working on the project, and have begun adding more panels and framing. The slots actually print fairly well, though you have to account for the tolerances of most 3d printers, the models are currently designed to print with a 0.6mm layerheight using a 0.4mm nozzle , though I imagine you can get things to fit well with smaller layerheights and nozzles.I should note that I screwed up the placement for standoffs, if you print this and your mobo fits then that is great, otherwise YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED My printer (Delta style) handled this like a champ considering the panels and framing had to be printed free standing, one panel suffered from slight warping but nothing sever enough to prevent assembly, I'll be glueing the panels together once I learn what kind of adhesive I should use. The material used was Repko White PLA for the majority of this, though the last panel had to be printed using the PLA I recieved with my printer. I'm also designing some example assemblies and adding more panel/framing sizes as well as pins that you can slide onto framing so you can install cablemanagement, and mounting points for various hardware you may want to install. I'm also going to be adding reinforcement pieces that slip between framing pieces for added rigidity I'm currently planning to add the following attachments for pins: Cable management grommets of various sizes Channeling for cables, various sizes (Possibly?) Decorative paneling, so yo can make the exterior of your chassis look nicer M.3 mounting brackets, angled, edge, and corner If you guys can think of any other attachments you want to see, mention me with your list of ideas and I'll see what I can do to add them.
  2. Modular PC Case project

  3. [Build Log] Metroid -A 3D printed computer case

    Wow, this is neat! I'm working on my own 3d printed computer case project and was wondering what material you're using, also do you ground your components, and if not, have you had any stability issues, or issues with ESD?
  4. The BYOC Project (Build your own Case)

    If you build your own case using the files I provide, and things go wrong, that's on you, I'm just a bored high school student who wants to carry his desktop PC with him without spending a couple grand on a modern luggable case I don't know if this belongs here because while I do plan on building a PC once all is said and done, the primary goal is to create a completely modular case system that almost anyone with a 3d printer can print (or machine for those of you who are machinists). 3D Printer Requirements: For Delta Printers A build area diameter of 100mm. A build area height of 100mm. For Cartesian Printers A build area of 100mm x 100mm x 100mm The project is hosted on Onshape, you can find a link here if you want to check it out, I may later be posting it to Thingiverse once a case is actually buildable using it. https://cad.onshape.com/documents/cbc53e541be82d0e252d1f08/w/4b0c37d4a151048941ae8b6c/e/be97687886a1f79c0cd2fff9 The hardware for this build: CPU: AMD A8-7600 (Locked Multiplier up to 3.8GHz) RAM: 4GB + 8GB 1600mhz DDR3 GPU: Zotac 1050 2GB Low-profile Motherboard: MSI A68H-I Mini ITX HDD 1: WD RE3 1TB @7200RPM (Labeled as Enterprise) HDD 2: WD Blue 500gb @7200RPM PSU: Semi Modular ThermalTake 450 Watt I'll do my best post updates as the process moves along, this includes design updates, prints (test, or final) and assembly.
  5. I've been designing a thing, probably about 8 hours in or so now

      Looks pretty neat, what is it if you don’t mind me asking? :P

    2. SilicateWielder


      I was guessing that the mounting points would be a giveaway, it's the beginnings of a fully-modular and 3d-printable (Or even machinable if you want) pc case project. It works with small printers too. It's on onshape so people can just fork the project to create their own parts


      I may create a log in the buildlogs section as I actually plan to use this kit to build a luggable desktop PC at some point but I'm hesitant as I'm likely for forget about this project for a long time.

      Well I’m often forgetful but even if you take photos and then save them in a compilation folder, I’m sure you’ll find the time to eventually do it. It looks pretty awesome.


      My first guess was a fully insulated window or something, I knew I’d get it wrong lol.

  6. Hi, so I am trying to troubleshoot a Windows 10 system using an Atheros 946x wifi+bluetooth combo mini-pcie card for wireless and bluetooth connectivity. The problem I'm having is that when connecting to any network (Whether it be WPA2 or unsecured) the computer will attempt to connect, the networks list disappears momentarily and then reappears saying "Can't connect to network" Bluetooth works just fine Here is an image of what happens after clicking connect: Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?
  7. Corrupt a Wish game

    Granted your team's .org web address is now c9.org I wish that I already had my second assignment done for my English class
  8. It looks like Win 9x but it's not

      What DE is it?

  9. If they can implement working mouse and keyboard support I'd be down to try it on Android.
  10. I've been working on a new headphone design.




    1. Revamp


      Very nice, looks like a great start. You planning on having it manufactured, or is it just to pass time?

  11. In the U.S Stores will indeed deny minors the sale of M-rated games. UNLESS a parent is with said child and can give permission for sale of the game to their child. At least that is how it is in Nebraska anway. Source: tried buying GTA SA for PS2 at a walmart when I was 15
  12. In the midst of refactoring my code. Took me about an hour so far but I'm rendering wireframes again and I only need to add a few more lines to render textured objects.

  13. I actually still use Winamp, didn't know it sends Telemetry data back to whoever owns the software now. Supposedly a new version is in the works, though I doubt they're ever going to release it at this stage in the game.
  14. Windows 10 Hangs in VM

    It's a laptop, Running on an AMD A8-7410 Quad-core and I've upgraded it to 8GB of RAM.low end machine I also seem to have issues with my main rig trying to run windows 10 VMs, though for that system I use the VM for cross-compatibility testing. the specs for that system are as follows A8-7600 OC'd to 3.8Ghz through BIOS 12GB DDR3 1600 2GB GTX 1050
  15. Windows 10 Hangs in VM

    Hi, so I have a class that I am taking where I need to use Autodesk REVIT, however I can't use it as I'm using linux for another course and Revit doesn't run under Wine. I'm currently attemping to run Windows 10 in a VM but the setup hangs when I start it up, is there a proper way to create a VirtualBox instance for Windows 10?
