Im thinking about investing in a 3d printer, and one of the projects i wanna do is print 2 lowers for my opus c3100 with a larger fan.
such designs exist

except i would like to join two together and have them share a plug. i know 8cell chargers exist but, i think its a project worth trying.
my question is can i use one 12v 8a power supply and split the connector between, or will issues with the chargers ensue.?
i used to do this with my guitar pedals with no issues, but simple electronics.
anything to look out for with potential power supply types?
I have used my power supply that came with my TronXY X1 to power my charger
This is the power supply that comes with the TronXY 12Vdc 6A
I can take that design and use tinkercad to stick them together so both your chargers are connected by the base, then all you have to do is wire the 2.1mm input to the input on both boards…they shouldn’t use more than 4-5A if both are running wide open together
Working on the 60mm variant for you…
Apparently…I’m having a difficult time of uploading an .stl to tinkercad…hmmm
Yeah, looking over the next few months, i thought i wound enquirer as i was going to update my chargers but i might just get another opus.
I have all my charging equipment and batteries in the flip open section in the top of my toolbox, and like the idea of being able to print battery holders and aa/aaa dispensers, should be fun. so many project makers have uploaded.
dont worry about making anythin on my behalf Warhawk, it will be some time yet, but i know who to contact now.
Hah…just went back into tinkercad…and low and behold the model was just sitting there waiting for me…hmmm
Well…here it is…
Wall thickness is 2.5mm…so I put 2-2.5mm “blocks” holding duplicated housings together, all you have to do is print with a tiny bit of support because the blocks are 2.5mm up from build plate, you will need a buildplate greater than 207mm wide (I would be able to print this on my Anet A8, it has a 220x220x240 build area.
Looks like you might need some rubber feet to hold it off the desk surface or whatever to allow better cooling airflow, maybe some of those cheap rubber bumper feet things
