Unexpected Design Detour

Recently, a professional contact asked me to help out with modifying a rack mount bracket for his digital audio mixer. Luckily, he was able to give me the original CAD files and I took it from there.

“This what 3D-Printing is ideal for”

Normally, the manufacturer's part is made from steel, but printing in PETG means I needed to add thickness to add strength.

This also compensated for all of the additional sections that I've cut from it to allow better cable routing and for the unit to be set further back into the rack.

After two iterations and some testing, I finalized the design and listed it on my site. Only a few days later, I had my first sale - a customer in France!.
