    NeonSFF - 3D Printed SFF Case

    Just wanted to share a project that I've worked on quite a while ago. Finally decided to upload my files and hopefully inspire others to create cases of their own! Aptly named, NeonSFF is a 3D Printed small form factor case. Designed in Solidworks and printed (after many failed prints and revisions) in PLA. You can check out the files yourself here where I have uploaded the CAD files in various formats (including STEP). Housed inside it is a modest system with a Core i5 6600k, MSI B250 ITX (the cheapest ITX board I found at the time, got the 6600k back when I actually had a motherboard that could overclock), Cryorig C7 with a generic 140mm fan, GTX 1060 6GB, 16GB RAM, and some other miscellaneous stuff. A common question I get is if the PLA will start warping over time? I've had multiple revisions of this case printed in PLA, none have ever warped from heat, including the current version which has been operating for about a year now. So most likely no, but of course you can print it yourself in a different filament. Feel free to use my designs (noncommercially). I would love to see what other people can do with it!

    Pyramid Case

    Damn, people are actually scared of wooden cases? As long as all your component are properly grounded (which they should be given a proper power supply), there is very little risk to the components starting a fire in the first place. If you really want to be cautious, then run a wire from the power supply housing to each of the components (like for the motherboard, attach the wire to one of the mounting posts). If you know how to work with metal already and have cheap access to tools and materials, then sure go for it. But wood (or acrylic) would be so much easier and cheaper than trying to do a metal scratch build. Plus, if you don't make the metal case properly (i.e no deburring, sharp edge, improperly affixed pieces, etc.) and a burr by chance falls onto a component, it could cause a short and who knows maybe you would actually start a fire (tho if anything, itll probably just be magical black smoke that makes electronics run).
  4. that should not be an issue if every other manufacturer has figured it out. But its Apple - gotta think different.

    What encryption software do you use?

    I use VeraCrypt......for a single text file with my entire list of accounts and passwords lol.
  6. The cost is pretty high, but its not that bad. Sure its cardboard, but it is absolutely ingenious how it interacts with the Switch. Like if you actually watch the video, its more than just cardboard crafts. For instance the piano and how it uses the IR camera to detect which key was pressed. Its not for everyone, but honestly this is not a bad product. I am more interested in this to develop other toy-cons of my own design. Plus using a 3D printer, I don't see why you couldn't make your own relatively easily with some CAD skills.
  7. Its a pain not going to lie, but not really hard and not too time consuming (as far as 3D printing goes in general). OP, its pretty expensive to 3D print a case if you don't have your own printer or access for free (like at a school). I would recommend using wood or acrylic just by cost. But 3D printing is definitely viable. Teaser Pics of the case I am working on rn (prototype with only 1 perimeter and only 15% infill with PLA. Side panel will be flush once I get around to screwing it down, only held by tape rn lol)
  8. just make sure to get a cutting wheel made for metal. even then, dremels are pretty weak in general.

    A Custom, 3D Printed Game Character Figurine?

    It depends. With a larger scale, slow print speed, and small layer height (like < 0.1mm), you can get some pretty decent figurines out of them. And a well tuned printer ofc.

    3d printer

    CR-10 all the way. Not much assembly, can print more than just PLA. If build volume is important, then CR-10 is better than the Prusa i3 MK3. Honestly the hype for Prusa is pretty insane. Still using an 8 bit controller. For its design, linear rails or wheels and t-slot extrusion are better solutions. Its a good printer, but not that great for the price. I would consider CR-10 (and maybe a couple around $300) to be the threshold for budget options. I have a Tronxy X1 that I got for $150 and with all the upgrades (heated 220 x 220 mm bed, E3D hotend, etc. etc.), I've spent around $250 on the whole thing. It prints way beyond what its price would suggest, but it took a lot of work to get it there. Kit printers in general are for hobbyists and tinkerers rather than people who just are looking for a tool.

    Is this 3D printer good

    Yeah it probably will. Just use the slicer of your choice. Prusa and other cheap chinese kits are nice because they are cheap. HOWEVER, I definitely recommend having some electrical knowledge, soldering, etc. Many of these kits have been known to have boards that just melt and die from magical black smoke. Fix: use higher gauge wire and a higher quality power supply. Not to mention, the parts are inaccurate sometimes and you gotta fix it or mod it. The great thing about the Prusa is that the coummunity is excellent with endless part upgrades ready to print and improve build quality. These cheap kits ARE an extreme time commitment to get it to print properly. Unless you are a tinkerer who enjoys that, don't buy it. I have a Tronxy X1 ($135 USD shipped from Gearbest) on the way and I am expecting a plethora of problems to happen and need to be resolved b4 i get even consider a decent print) https://folgertech.com/products/folger-tech-reprap-2020-prusa-i3-full-aluminum-3d-printer-kit The link above is to a Prusa clone with nice aluminum extrusions and better QC, and a company based in the US for better support. So if you do want to stick to the Prusa design and dont want as much hassle as other chinese Prusa kits give you, I would recommend this.
  12. agreed. Is it even news? face unlock has always been this easy to bypass (exclude Windows Hello devices for a sec). Basically all this is doing restating what already has been established. "Don't expect a more or similarly secure system as you get with Windows Hello for the facial recognition." lol, would fit right into a microsoft ad

    Not as far as I know of. I never drank solely Soylent and even the company advises against this (basically while technically they say you can do it theoretically, it is more meant to replace a meal of the day or meals that you normally eat crap anyways). I drink Coffiest for breakfast and it is amazing when I am running late and need something quick.

    Yummy Z170 ITX deal

    If you meant trash mobo, then you are right. Just look at the reviews and its still pretty expensive. If not, then yeah wrong thread.
