need 3d pro to come to my rescue!!! Please point me in direction of a dude that will do custom design!!! Please help I messed up!!!!


i drilled holes for my overflow too low. eshopps directions didn't mention anything about tanks with trim.... my first time drilling., too excited to get er done.


so I was hoping to get a overflow box for interior printed up. Acrylic thicknesses are 1/4" front panel, and 1/8" rear to give idea for volume. I understand 3d printing has its limitations soI am open to different dimensions.


I was hoping to do a 2 piece that interlocks somehow. So I can take apart for cleaning. Also hoping to do front panel in Black, and back panel in transluscent orange.


Eshopps Prodigy Large

Current dimensions areL
L x W x H
12" x 5/8" x 6

proposed dimensions are

12" x 5/8" x 7 1/4""

Just a suggestion, maybe just silicone a weir and use just the eshopps rear half, bulkheads thru the glass.

the only problem is that this is too big for our printers :confused: and I do not want to do it in 2 pieces as it wouldn't look nice

you should do this using acrylic sheets

sorry that we cannot help :(

Well if the tank is not to expensive. get a new tank, and redrill. That's what a pro would do. Glass box tanks aren't to bad in price. Petco// petsmart will price match. other then that good luck.
72 gallon bow front. had to drive 4 hours round trip to find one.
