Just made another DNA250 in a 3D printed box.
This is my second DNA250, this time using a 1300mAh lipo to get the full 250w range.
Box designed and printed by myself at home.

RE: Just made another DNA250 in a 3D printed box.
Get a copy of 123 Design, its free, use it to do the main body and door design, its a powerful yet simple program, i then tend to export teh file to use in Windows 3D Builder, so i can mock up the finished product before saving the different parts into their own files for printing.
Think about how you need to print an item, anything with overhangs might need supports, so try to place the part so there are minimal overhangs to reduce clean up after the print is finished.
Get yourself some decent digital calipers, to get accurate measurements, double check Everything before you print, nothing worse than waiting a few hours to finish printing, only to find the screen placement is out or a button hole too small lol
