Report Making DIY cases. in Do It Yourself Posted December 21, 2021 · Edited December 21, 2021 by headinclouds correct double paste Thanks, it's so much easier than drilling and tapping panels and heatsinks and I think it achieves an acceptable look. My first build was an on-board heatsink KGSShv and used Modushop case. Since then I designed my own cases for the freedom it gives. I use a simple 2D CAD to do sheet metal drawings and export as dxf. I live in Shropshire, England on the edge of the West Midlands industrial area where I can get laser cutting, machining and metal finishing from industrial OEM companies. Unfortunately they don’t do retail or export. They supply the metal (Alum 5251 as it lasers and anodises well). A case like this would currently cost about £280 ($370) for the total of laser, finishing, screen printing. You have to add in the ceramic heatsinks which cost me about £50. Aluminum section, brackets and nuts and bolts are needed for assembly. I don’t know how this compares with any other suppliers.
