Just an idea I think of for a bit of time now: use some piece of PCB to fit. Cut them out of some dead motherboard or have them baked. There are some really cheap bakers that could provide some more or less ok-ish PCBs, which make it look cool. It's like looking into a case stacked full with PCBs. They don't need to do anything but look cool.

Stuck at 10MHz...

would you be able part with few for db9 and db25 holes and plastic covers, never came across any and is there pics to see what they look like

Here is a pic of my whole collection of them. Seem to be pretty simple to make.

The DB-9 plastic covers for the populated ports would be the same as come on the HD-15 vga cables. Never seen a cover for DB-25 size.

Some Dell computers that had onboard video and came with a video card came with pretty nice covers for the onboard vga. I might have a few somewhere but not sure.

would be to part with at least one of each size

Maybe. I'll need to check my cases first to see how many need covers. I'll check when I am back home next week.

You could always get a something 3D printed?

that did cross my mind but unfortunately, i have no idea how to design for 3d printing or someone who could or owns a 3d printer but still nae a bad idea

mmm, didn't think of that and trying to picture it but at the same time i am think it will at back to case where it won't be seen unless turned around (weird old man alert 🤣 🤣 - coming from the mindset of someone , who believes that if can't be seen (which is why i never understand why there people who go all out with rgb lighting inside cases and on parts when it can't be seen once the case is close and looks tacky to me) 🤣 🤣) but each to their own 😀

Shapeways is a place where you can upload designs and get a cost estimate; they're typically between $3 and $10 USD for smaller/simpler things:

https://www.shapeways.com/marketplace

https://support.shapeways.com/hc/en-us/articl … ces-calculated-

That doesn't take care of not knowing how to design one, though. *shrug*
