This is a case for the MKS Gen 1.4 board. I noticed that nobody showed their case designs with the cover off, arguably because the wiring inside wasn't anything to be proud of. I wanted a case where the wiring was organized and I could easily locate wires if I would ever need to. I'm really happy with how it turned out (inspirations from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2627540). The difference between the two cases you can downloaded is how they mount. One mounts to the side and the other on the bottom. If you want specific mount options, put it in the comment section and I'll see what I can do. It has three fan mounting locations, 2 4010 fans on the top and bottom, and 1 7025 fan on the cover.
- To mount the board you'll need 4 m3 x 6mm bolts.
- To attach the cover you'll need 6 m3 x 20mm bolts (or a little shorter)
- To mount the case on your 3d printer you'll need to figure the bolt length you need. The holes are 5mm wide (I wouldn't use m5s though because it'll be too tight).
- To mount the 4010 fans, you'll need 8 m3 x 20mm bolts and 8 m3 nuts, you could probably use shorter bolts, but that's what I used.
- To mount the 7025 fan you'll need 4 m3 x 35mm bolts and 4 m3 nuts.
Happy printing and let me know if you need anything!
If you make this, post a make!! I'd love to see it.
any brand PETG
I printed this in PETG at 0.2mm resolution at 50mm/s, sliced with Cura. PETG likes taller layers so you could probably do 0.25 if you want. I figure you could print this in PLA, but I try to avoid printing machine parts with it and I don't recommend it. I suggest using supports because there are holes for letting the wires in.
!!!Make sure that your slicer doesn't put supports in the vertical vent holes!!!
They don't need it! And you'll probably break the vent cover trying to take the supports out. You also don't need a lot of supports, I'm pretty sure I did 7%.
I got inspiration for this case from TMesple's thing:
for the MKS gen L.
However, I didn't use their models to build this, just the idea.
I then designed it from the ground up in TinkerCAD.
