Thermaltake Gets On The 3D Printing Bandwagon – Hackaday

by • February 7, 2016 • No Comments

We’re interested by a move of Thermaltake, a developer of desktop cases, fans, and power supplies. Thermaltake has released a desktop case created to be modded by those with a 3D printing device. They released a set of versions which fits the new case. These are all hosted on a service much like Thingiverse. So if you want a single SSD or a whole rack, print the version. Waterrading? There’s a version for which. In concept, it’s quite rad.
We’re not sure how to feel of this. Our first impression was which if Thermaltake is going to commence a case around 3D printing, they should at lease tune their printing device and get a few really excellent prints preceding they take the press photos. On our 2nd pass we became intrigued. Is this a developer cutting costs, crowd-sourcing create and engineering ability for free, or empowering the user? Arguably, a desktop case is a excellent test bed for this kind of interaction.
Despite out skepticism, we’d like to see additional developers take this kind of contributing interest in 3d printing. If just to see where it goes. What other products do you ponder may benefit of this kind of, print the product you in fact want version?
