Have you guys seen this little baby?
I'm not sure how much it is on it's own. A definite buy for SFF case I think.
Thank you for the feedback. I will try to answer the questions to my best knowledge.
1. Yes, the clearance is actually taking into account modular PSUs
2. The size is measured on a flat surface to the highest, widest etc. points.
3. SFX-L would not actually make so much difference in radiator...
Thanks, manufacturing was a holdup, but I think there is more behind it and I'm not sure what. I'm hoping to find out from the experts ;)
Some basic specs:
360mm x 385mm x 191mm (H x L x W)
1.5mm aluminium material (powder coated)
1.5mm + 3mm stainless steel
Hello fellow designers!
I have been to the forum for while, but never really shown the project here. FPS-CASE1 has been out there for few years. It's a simple custom made mITX enclosure that also fits ATX power supplies and wide graphics cards.
The case was...
Really good info this. Thanks.
It just makes you wonder, how is it possible there are no 90 degree power connectors yet. It's been on my mind for a long while. I'm thinking to 3D print my own for now. This could save valuable 10 mm.
This card is brilliant so far, from construction point of view. Reminds me of FHD OLED TVs, which are same price tag as 4K TVs. Technology is there and it's going to be developed. It's AMDs first shot at these drivers as well. I mean I don't know much about drivers development, but it's got to...
It's by all means doable as long as the top tool on press is tall enough to reach the two bends that you have on first image. It only means that you put one bend on one side of the tool and the other bend on the other side of the tool. If your shop has got fingers (top tool extension) long...
With such production it's a good idea to have one complete set of parts for one case coming of the machine. In ideal world you would want to use 1 sheet per 1 case (whatever size) as this makes production process easier. It allows to run one program regardless of quantity under current demand...
Manufacturers will of course try to utilize the sheet but not always for your benefit.
It's entirely up to you what you are going to do with your steel in the end.
I will be making sure that I'm using every bit of sheet I buy, so that I throw as little as possible in the bin.
Even if you are to keep the flat bits without forming, when something goes wrong during forming, you have a spare. What I'm trying to say is that parts made out of that left over material are worth much more than that scrap.
Our company usually over-produces, in our case, reason being is...
My suggestion to you guys is, when you are 100% happy with your design:
1) flatten/unfold all parts
2) provisionally nest those parts on the sheet (for lasering), so you know exactly what you are using out of the sheet size you are advised to use
3) then if any spare room is left, use it for...
I would put that image in perspective personally - it would look more life-like.
I would recommend those sizes to avoid running into too many problems with your design. Pump mount:
Other than that 2mm seems like a lot for a solid unibody case. Have you thought about the weight? I would...
General rule of thumb for selecting the size of v-shaped die like this: material thickness x 8 (you can push it to x6)
This defines the width of V. Then half of that value (plus 4mm/5mm) is he minimum length of leg you can bend, measured from the bend line to edge of your flange or cut-out in...
