Electronics Box Model

It has been a while since my last post. I have been really busy lately. My latest progress has been on the layout of the electronics box that will be mounted to the back of the machine. I chose to contain all the fragile electronics within one box to minimize the amount of wire required to connect the circuit boards together, as well as protect it all from liquids. The box will be oriented with the ventilation fans on the bottom so that if a liquid spills on the box, it wont make its way inside. The ATX power supply is shown at the right of the box, this may be moved to the bottom as well to avoid liquid spillage. The Arduinos and power distribution board can be seen inside the box. I will drill smaller holes in the bottom and line them with rubber gaskets to run wires in and out much like the firewall of a car.
