So I was looking at another thread that does custom enclosures and thinking about the design process and I had an idea.
If you notice there is this pesky “rim” that stops you from getting the flat sections flush with the deck. This is because of the way that the mold and vacuum work. So you can either sand/cut it down, or I could provide a pdf template with the cross section and we could remove the “base” on the 3d print and instead cut it out once the abs has been vacuum formed, thus removing the corner lip. Then you’d use the template to cut around the part in the shape that you desire for the base.
The only issue I could see with this method is that you might not get a fully flat surface because of the holes in the base where the air gets sucked out, but that could be fixed by putting the part on top of some thin cardboard or paper/insert other flat thing.
What are your thoughts on this method?
