Looking at the rear I seem to have got the supports way too high :roll: I must have not taken off the thickness of the base when I measured these out :roll:

Just need a blank motherboard to check the hole alignments correctly now....

EDIT:

Less middle area now. I may put more struts in there, but don't think it really needs it... it will be a order of magnitude quicker to print thats for sure!

Holes on the back should be better now as well... Will have to wait until Monday before I can print it out again :(

Nice - How sturdy is it?

So all you have left to do are some risers to fit between the PSU and motherboard?

There is a tiny bit of bend on it all, but really not surprised. I have increased the angle part at the back slightly.. I will probably try a better infill on the next print, as it is only 15%... If there was printed solid I still think it would bend slightly.. Is nowhere near enough to break, but it is after all plastic and not metal.. I have been trying to break it and it's not possible.

Removing the hexagon pattern in the centre did not make it any less bendy.

Yeah, they will be like the floppy plastic posts, that type of thing.

You should give it to somebody who is skilled in breaking :D

Looks good to me tho
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

T is not strong enough until the spoon stands up on its own :)
