    I had 3d-printed that model (well the 2 parts for glueing) and I have to say that is perfect in dimensions. Obviously, it has surface imperfections that are "3d prusa inherit". Also in two or three attempts of removing the front, all the clips are gone. So I also thought in magnets, but... the disk drive is so close... better get those magnets away from disks.
    I would like to put those towers with m3 screws you are saying!!!
    PRS, if you go forward with this, please count with me!

    Thanks for your interest.

    With regard to the magnets... You might have a point there, but as long as the size isn’t too big, the magnetic field is small and should not interfere with the floppy(drive)s.

    It would be great if you can choose the color of the anodized aluminum, are you going to make the power button in aluminum too?
    Why don't you use an indiegogo or a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project?

    I've added prices if ordered less than 10 and also for a slightly more expensive alternative in nice and shiny polished version. Are you interested enough to take the leap with me?

    I'm willing to also look in the possibility to change the design from clips to solid rods, so we can tap some M3 screwthread in there...
