Agreed. As for the printer did you see the printtable sl? https://www.3dhubs.com/talk/thread/just ... ack-tables

can be adapted to our needs.
Yeah I have seen those Ikea tables used before. If I was building another printer I would probably use them.

Problem mostly is physical size of the Atari case, its larger than A3. I could probably find a kit or adapt, but after 2 years I still not had much time to finish my current 3D printer :( Even so, I think a professional printer would give a better print.

FWIW I have a ~€2000 3D printer and I would not be terribly happy with the output quality for a case. It would need a lot of sanding down to get to an acceptable surface.

I've thought about splitting an STL and printing parts to glue together. Would be a lot of glue.

Of course a professional printer will give better prints, if used, calibrated and maintained correctly, still it will be too costly for most users.
Besides, here the ikea table isn't an enclosure, it's actually the printer itself.

@Troed, try acetone. Put some on a paper towel and wipe the print with it.
You might need some sanding before but not as much as you'd think, specially if you print with ABS.

Acetone only really works with ABS which is one of the most difficult to print, especially large pieces due to warping.

Best 3D print for such big objects with overhang and holes is a powder based printer.
Or a stereolithography printer.

But using those files as a base for 3D printing is a good idea, as customizing is easy. You could engrave our name on the case or other crazy things, like better accessible joystick/mouse ports. A second floppy on the right side. SD card slot.

Another even sillier idea is to buy one of those Amiga cases and fit an ST motherboard in :twisted:

I am sure, this will instantly collapse and form a black hole ;)

Nothing much to say here, but I just watch one of Dave Jones videos...

What caught my attention was the prototype multimeter case, he said was 3-D printed. It looks very good quality that came off the printer just like that.. But this does make me think that there should be high quality 3-D printers which should be able to do a similar quality job on Atari cases.. I guess I could email Dave and ask...
