    [Build Log] -Aurora Wave- A RGB 3D Printed Case by 8-Bit Builder



    Hello and welcome to my newest build


    I've been modding for 10 years now and usually my themes are of a pixelated design. This mod is named Aurora Cubes as the case will be built to look like it's made out of hundreds of cubes that each have a LED and will pattened lighting effects. It will be quite a light show (I hope!). I will be 3D printing this case and expect to use about 6 lbs of plastic to make. Here are a few designs so you can visualize the project.







    My sponsors for this mod


    Components
    ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO WI-FI
    ASUS GTX 1070 STRIX

    TEAMGROUP T-FORCE Delta RGB 16gb DDR4 RAM

    Heres a few photos of my previous work:



    I'll be back soon with some progress of printing and programming!

    Back with some new progress now that I've printed a few sections out. Having some stringing issue due to a mod I put on the printer so I've been troubleshooting it but still giiving some issues.

    THE STRINGINGGGGG



    Fix'd after some easy cleanup




    Next issue was the this tall section having a weak stability




    Nothing a little 3d pen cant fix. This section will be strengthened once the whole frame comes together.




    And heres the base being clamped together. Its a bit bigger than I expected honestly but not an issue. I'll be back with the rest of the frame coming together.

    Going to be some rapid updates as I move into finising printing most of pieces now. I've ran into a few issues...

    Spaghetti monster, colorized
    What happened: I was printing 3 pieces but the 3rd piece dislodged from the printbed and began printing in the air. Luckily the 2 pieces were easily salvageable and cleaned up for use.


    This is the top in sections. Will house a 120mm fan, a usb hub and a power button.
















    This is the window section of the case. I'll be adding plexiglass to it last. Still brainstorming ideas on how to have the glass removable while still looking nice.
