I have a 3D model of an SVO-9600 that I built as a project for a class if you want it. (within 1/32" or better on sides; curve radius accuracy is somewhat lower, no rails installed)

Nah, thanks; I was more looking for the cabinet racks, and desks, and that sort of stuff; I suspect I can just texture-map in the faceplates of most of the gear.

> used DPS-475's on eBay for an insanely low price... they had been removed from a consumer satellite uplink, and needed only a couple of new fans to bring them right up to as-new condition.

Amusingly enough, we have 4 of these in our control room, stuffed in the bottom of a rack...

and one lost a fan last month; it was making noises like a 727 taking off. :-)

Those fans fail constantly.

It's a known point of failure in those.

Back in the day, I could replace a 475/575 fan with my eyes closed.

And they fail with an odd noise, too; probably because of their size; I thought we were losing a hard drive, not a fan...
