About Project

The client bought this secondhand NAS from a thrift store and designed the NAS enclosure by himself. He made a plastic case with his desktop FDM 3D printer, and came to us for PMMA manufacturing. Some of our clients really take pride in custom PC building.


  • Step 1: The client measures the dimension of his medical devices, and builds the model of the enclosure, then exports the STL file for printing and the DXF file for laser cutting.
  • Step 2: Here we print the parts with FDM 3D printing technology using FDM PLA, which is the most cost-effective solution for this application.
  • Step 3: Take the prints from the plane. Adding a raft or skirt would make this process easier.
  • Step 4: Polish the prints manually with grater and sandpaper to remove the remaining marks.
  • Step 5: Laser cut the acrylic boards and drill holes as required. Finally, assemble all the parts with the devices, and fix them with screws.
