  1. Hi guys, I'm 8-Bit Builder. I've been doing this for about 10 years now and just starting up my newest build. I build cases in the an old pixelated style as you will see shortly :D. I've been wanting to build a Metroid computer case for about 7 years now but plastic was always too expensive ($1 a cube) compared to .08 cents a cube of wood which is what all my previous PC mods are made out of. Once I found out how accessible 3D printers were, I jumped head first and picked up a Maker Select. After a few months of non-stop printing it dawned on me that I could make the Metroid computer case I've been thinking about for such a long time. Normally I spend about 200-250$ in wood/paint but 3D printing plastic is really cheap in comparison, about $80 in plastic. I'm also planning on having a really cool light sequence on the inside of the case to get the red effect of the in game Metroid. Being my first foray into a 3D printed computer I'm sure I'll run into issues but look forward to overcoming them. This will also be my first time with programmable LED's so it will be a learning experience on that front also! I'm going with an ASUS STRIX for the Aura Sync capabilities since this case is going to have a big focus on lighting. The more advanced lighting will be done with the Tinkerboard. Expectations: A strong gaming pc 100s' of LEDs programmed inside for a light show 95% 3D printed Components: ASUS has sponsered/supplied me with components for this mod (Really appreciate it) and also in the past on my Airship PC Case seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz5muWnFMmg ASUS ROG STRIX X370-I GAMING AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 TURBO-GTX1080-8G 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 16 GB of ram 1TB SSD Asus Tinkerboard with a few hundred LEDs programmed in a cool light show And heres some photos of my past work: Airship from Final Fantasy Link from Zelda And a 3D model I've printed, Calcifer from Howl's Moving Castle Ok on to the build! This is what I'm building (modeled in 123Design/Tinkercad): Metroid from ...Metroid! The modeled case My first idea of how the components will fit I started printing and doing test pieces to make sure I had it down pretty good and to test strength of the frame. Needless to say, it holds a LOT of weight (I weigh 185lbs) I've got the printer going in earnest on the final design now. The printer will be going non-stop for about 2-3 weeks to get all the pieces done. I'll be back soon though with photos of attaching sections together with glue and 3D pen welding! If you have any questions or ideas, feel free to ask :D
  2. Hello! I want to show you a modding project that I finished recently, a project that I presented in the Thermaltake Casemod Invitation Spain 2017 and that won the 2nd place in the contest. It is a project made in a case Thermaltake Core P5, represents a Chess in a medieval scene, combining analog and digital gaming on a computer ... what can I say ?, I am a fan of the game Chess, the world Skyrim And long ago I wanted to get a 3D printer for my projects, this was a perfect opportunity to get everything done. The project is almost all 3D printing, and as it is my first 3D printer, in this project I learned everything I needed to handle it correctly, so you will see that I change a lot of software as I go through the project. Almost all 3D models are downloaded and made by other authors, which will be listed at the end of the photo worklog presentation. Environment: For the environment, the walls and the floor, I used the models of two people ... Devon Jones for walls, windows and doors. The variety of environments that this artist has attracted me a lot, since using the same style for all the pieces to print creates an environment with greater harmony ... If you like the printable models to make your own table games, This artist is a must do. Rocket Pig Games for floors. Their floors had simplicity, variety and quality, everything they sought. Selected Objects Objects are many, and several different artists, although at this point Rocket pig Games also appears in several models, I will group them by author. Rocket Pig Games This author has simple and very original models, of great quality and very interesting for the project, I used of them the Barrel, the boxes, the coffers, the piles of firewood, the piles of stone, Aaron Powell This user has several models very handsome, I stayed with two or three of them, I used his shield with the swords and the wooden sign that I then added my logo, and the old street lamp, three models of very good quality HobGoblin-3D The pedestal of the upper floor, where are the sponsor brands of suspended porject is of HobGoblin-3D, model bought from Pinshape Dmaccallum This user shares a dragon skull that I really liked, a nice trophy of the magician's light defender of the castle to display on the roof ... Prit3x From print3x I chose Dragon Alduin, dragon inspired by Skyrim, a model that was not ready to print since the wings were extremely thin and I had to retouch the file, I think I left you in the section of "printing pieces" as I solve with Meshmixer the problem. Trekeyus And finally the magician who shares Trekeyus in Thingverse And that's it, I hope you liked the result! BR! DeKa

  4. Hi all, I know its been awhile since I have been active on here, but to make up for it, I'm going to share my latest project. I have been working on this for the past few weeks and have finally gotten to the build phase of the project, which I will be sharing with you shortly. But for now, here is the initial concept and design. I wanted to do something simple and minimalist using some fun equipment that I had at my disposal, one of which was a 3D printer. So I decided to design a case using just 3D printed and laser cut acrylic parts. I am actually designing this for a friend of mine and he had a certain look he wanted to go for, he REALLY like the In-Win 904 case with that giant window on the side, so I did something similar, just out of 3D printed parts. Another feature I wanted to accomplish with this was a very clean looking motherboard tray with no visible holes for cable routing. To do this, all the parts are on standoffs and the wires will be routed behind their respective parts to the back panel. Currently the 3D printed parts are being printed and I should have them sometime next week, I will be ordering the laser cut parts as well next week. If anyone has any questions or comments, feel free to ask. Thanks for viewing!
