Assemble the case
Use thick CA glue to assemble the parts of the case.
Glue the front panel to the base first, then the top.
I found that I had to sand the bottom of the front panel a bit to get it to sit flush at the top.
Getting a smooth finish
I decided to try for a very smooth finish on the case so I used Bondo auto body putty to fill in the gaps between the "noodles". (This works for PLA, but not with ABS.)
I did this two times and wet sanded after each applictaion had dried. First with 240 grit then 400 grit.
It worked better than I had hoped, after spray painting it looked great!
I used Krylon 2X spay paint.
After Bondo and sanding, but before painting.
I wired up the parts first and then installed them into the case.
First install the banana jacks.
Then install the power switch.
Then run the wires to the DP30V5A thru the opening and connect them. After that insert the unit into the front panel.
I mounted the fan to the back with 4-40 nuts and bolts.
I added a fuse block help on with a 6-32 bolt and nut. If you want to do that you will need to drill a hole for it.
The next thing was to mount the Sermos/Anderson power pole connector for the input power. It is hels in place by a #2x3/8" screw and some thick CA.
The final step is to use 6 #2x3/8 screws to hold the back panel on.
