Nope.. laser cutting wasn't my idea. But if I did, that would be how I would do it.
CNC, if going down that route, do it in metal, then we have a injection mold done.
True, it was suggested before to clone the MEGA ST case instead.
Indeed. If someone else wants to look into such cases then no problem by me. But then we get into issues, some want STE case, some want STFM case, some want MEGA ST case. Printing is only low cost option, but only in smaller "kit" form sections. Then its not a "classic" case anymore. Of course huge issues which ever direction the "case remake" project may go. I got the STFM designs done to investigate possibilities of making a clone.. but as I found out (no surprise) the costs are just to high. So its not going to happen.
But if we going to do a new case, then it would be better to fit my STF remake motherboard.. but in that case, I would just use a PC case and use ITX form factor or something small. But likely I won't have time to finish motherboard anytime soon anyway. Plus I don't have time to design a case.. in 2 years I hardly finished my 3D printer. So not a project I can do myself.
