Update 31-10-2012

The DOSD Case now in black , There is a slight marbling effect in the top and bottom of the cases, such is the nature of the printer, The parts are printed into a very thin film of ABS, I can't use coloured ABS for this film as the impurities (colourings) prevent adhesion, so the film is natural white ABS. This is washed over with Acetone to dissolve the White ABS, diminishing this effect. The pictures below paint a better picture. Either way, Black cases are very cool. Soon to be available at
