Well, when you add some hardware component to your computer you always take those metal rails out of the back of the computer, but when you remove the component you can never seem to remember where those pesky metal rails went to. Instead of leaving a big gaping hole in the back of my CPU, I decided to print out a replacement rail that will cover the spot nicely. Simple little design and works. Not sure of how many people out there suffer from this same problem, but at least they can print one out if they happen to have a 3d printer, and happen to search on thingiverse for one :)

Could you please upload the .stl file?

Thanks - I just did. Not sure what happened, when I first created this in Thingiverse I uploaded the .stl and somehow it converted over time to a skp. You should be able to get the .stl now.

Thank you for fixing it so fast!

and now make a lowprofile one, and with configurable screw locations! :D

Now thats useful!!

This is great, definitely one of those "I need one of these but don't want to order one online" type things. Great design!

Be wary of your case temperature. 50ºC, or ~122ºF and PLA will start to soften. (With ABS you wouldn't have to worry about this until around 90ºC or ~190ºF which your case shouldn't get to in the first place.) Just a heads up

About time someone made one of these

Awesome, i actually need a few of these. Ty
