Is there a wiring diagram anywhere ?

Great design!
I will print it in the next time.
But please James could you give me a link where to find the correct USB connector?

Thanks for all!


super projet je vais le refaire

Hi There,
i just printed my Version of the Lab PSU, i fits pretty nice. THX for the design

But i have another issues ... it seems that my psu is not providing enough power to my connected devices. My Lipo Charger quits when it starts zu drain more than 2A over the 12V connection ... My ATX PSU should provide 12A over the 12V lines ...

Did i miss something?

Hi … i got it … ignore my previous post

What was the fix? you should always post the fix!

ballast resistor to keep the psu alive usually does the trick.

Hi, thanks for the desing, i was looking for something like this tho charge drone batteries, could you share where did you get the banana conectors or the model? thanks

I really like you design, but is it possible to upload your files. I would like to add some volt and ampere meters on the plate en the connectors in the vertical front wall.

Is there any way you can put a second usb port on the front panel. Turn them horizontal and in line with the jacks

Any tips on what to do with all the extra unused power cables? Trim them and use electrical tape/wire nuts? Also, any suggestions on screw length?

do really like your model for the psu
only have one request can u make a totaly plain front plate for this in stl so its possible to drill it out my self

Added plain panel.

thanks alot for that

Hello, I have a panel with two usb connectors, if that interests you give me your email address I will send it to you.

What does your panel look like?

Is there any way to make the handle hinge. I am really bad at 3D modeling and wouldn't know where to begin.
Basically have it lay flat against the PSU so it is completely flush with the top rails.

Maybe make the top 2 rails with holes on the inside and make the handle have pegs that go inside of the holes?

i have thought of the same thing. as i will remodel some of the other parts as well for my use, i will make a hinged handle for this anyway. i will post it here when ill get around to it (if i remember it)

Foldable Handle (Print and Play) For Lab ATX Power SupplySkeleton Case

i have designed a handle myself, but i havent printed and tested it yet, so thats why i havent posted it yet.

Comments deleted.

Great design! I am going to attempt to modify it to add a ammeter and a shunt when I receive the parts.


Whats the chance you could post the front panel in a CAD form? I'd like to reduce the connectors and add an amp/volt meter in their place.

Added file emptypanel_dxfR12.dxf for holes and outside of panel. There is also inside line witch represents mounting shoulder, so don't draw anything outside this line or it will hit mounting shoulder.

Hi there, cool design.
Could you upload the original cad files for adjusting?


What is wrong with current dimensions?

Hi, nothing. I just would like to make custom front plate. :-)

Added panel plain.ipt to files. Hope this helps, there is not many useful file types out from inventor

Thx, for the blank panel!
The lenght of a ATX power supply actually varies, Mine was about 15mm to long. I made an adapter to extend the length. :-)

Did you print 6_front.stl with or without supports? I think I can figure out the print orientation from the surface texture in the photos; however, I am assuming that it was printed with the bottom of the part touching the build platform.

With supports and you are thinking right, bottom to the build platform. This way needed supports are minimal.

could make the front 12v, 5v, 3.3v and a USB input

I make third panel, if I can remember where to find spare usb connectors, but it is square hole of some specific size.
