ASUS announces a 3D Printing Project. Several of the company's new motherboads feature easily swappable parts, enabling enthusiasts with 3D printers to customize the motherboard with 3D printed name plates and logos:
ASUS welcomes a new era of PC customization by being the first motherboard brand to support 3D-printable parts, an initiative that allows hobbyists, enthusiasts and modders to add unique modifications to their ROG Strix X99 Gaming and ROG Rampage V Edition 10 motherboards. These boards feature easily swappable parts, enabling passionate DIYers to design and 3D-print their own replacement name plates and logos in a variety of colors and materials to match their themed builds. This exciting development brings a whole new world of personalization to the DIY PC experience.
Visitors to the ROG motherboard zone at Computex will be able to view stunningly modded ROG Strix X99 Gaming, ROG Rampage V Edition 10, X99-DELUXE II and TUF Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1 motherboards, created by the ASUS Design Center. Designed to showcase the amazing possibilities presented by this innovative 3D printing project, these motherboards have been customized with parts printed on professional-grade 3D printers. To achieve an unbelievable quality of finish, these parts have then been carefully sandblasted and polished to perfection. The four boards on display each have their own unique theme, and use a wide range of high-quality 3D-printed parts — personalized nameplates, sturdy GPU holders, chassis fan holders, DRAM fan covers, cable management kits and much more. For users who simply want an easy way to add their own unique touches to their build, there is a range of creative, colorful nameplates and logos that give them the freedom to express their unique personal style with a minimum of fuss.
