This is a Circuit Sword CM3 build. The case is translucent black even though it doesn't look like it. It is nice because you can see all the status lights without having to drill the holes for them. The buttons are translucent red with red pads underneath them. The 2 back buttons were sent to me by Sixteenbit. It took a little shaving of the 3D printed parts to get them where I could actually press them and have them flush with the back of the case. I need to go in a shave a tiny bit more to make them even.
I mainly used the 3D printed parts from eltoozero on Github and found that I needed to modify a couple of them for my build. I also used HoolyHoo's Circuit Sword Fan Cartridge and modified that so the fan would stay in the case and blow across the heatsink. You can see the fan through the cart but it isn't too bad. If I get permission from the respective owners, I will probably attempt to modify the 3D printed parts and make them available to everyone.
Case modifications were minimal. I needed to cut out a few pins near the screen area for the 3D part, clear out the battery bay to make room for Helder's Megabat, a hole in the back of the case for the fan (the printed cart hides it), and cut a little notch in the side for the USB-C charging port. I mainly used flush cutters for the thinner stuff (like the pins and stuff in the battery bay) and a dremel and files to take out the screen, the USB-C cutout, and the fan in the back. I am VERY pleased how they all turned out. My best suggestion is to mark, take the bulk out, and then hand file to the final dimensions. It takes a long time, but it is worth the effort.
The final assembly was pretty straight forward. All but one of the connections were in the build guide but that is because I ordered the board with the volume wheel.
But what is a psudo build log without pictures?
