Introducing 3D-Printable Parts For ASUS Motherboards, Graphics Cards, And Peripherals

The flexibility that a neutral color scheme and RGB lighting provides is welcome because it gives consumers more control over how a system looks, but color is just one aspect of aesthetics. A component’s physical form is just as important. Therefore, providing users with options to modify the shape of their hardware should be the next milestone. That’s where advancements in 3D printing technology can help.

The advantage of 3D printing is that one-off designs and small-scale production don’t require the extortionate tooling fees associated with conventional manufacturing methods, opening up a host of possibilities for DIY enthusiasts. A level of competency with CAD software is required to develop things yourself, of course, but we can help by designing products to accept printed parts and by providing 3D source files that users can modify. With that in mind, we unveiled some conceptual 3D-printed parts for ASUS motherboards at Computex a few months ago.
