Looks like the 3D printed parts came out good. I'm looking forward to see how it looks all assembled together.
That's definitely the plan right now. I just spoke to a manufacturer today, and they said I should plan for both, so I'll be doing a redesign for CNC machining (v10) and will then have two validated plans to see what gets done, going forward.If you go for a kickstarter campaign you could adjust the final way of manufacturing and price for backers depending on the pre orders you get.
There may also be upcoming support for 3-slot GPUs
Exactly. Without having preorder numbers understood and figured out, it's tough to know what manufacturing techniques will be the best, so the goal now is to plan for multiple possibilities, and then pick the one that best matches Kickstarter numbers.I hear you on extrusion and milling aluminum. The parts come out too expensive if you just want one run. I have to use laser cutting and my biggest gripe with it is that while it's great for flat pieces, it too scales poorly for cutting many smaller holes, as you have in your exterior pieces.
