Nova eGPU

Post by Atarian Computing » Sun Mar 17, 2019 1:39 pm

So eGPU is just another name to a phenomenon pioneered by Atarians decades ago in the form of Nova. I always thought it was cumbersome without a proper case. I had a moment of inspiration and came up with a design based on this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2974854.

I shortened it and modified the base and of course added the logo. Here are shots of 3D models and prototype prints that work absolutely perfectly. Once it's ready, I'll upload to Thingiverse.
