Scratch Build: Rey's Speeder -COMPLETE!

Hello everyone, I'm bringing you a new scratch build project that I've been wanting to do for awhile now. I'll be making Rey's Speeder Bike from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And as luck would have it, Cooler Master's case mod contest was just announced, so I thought I'd enter! So without further ado, let's get started!



About a year ago, my family and I went to Disneyland, and they had lots of Star Wars props on display, including a life-size speeder that Rey used. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would make a great themed case. I took a bunch of reference pics while I was there, and I also scoured the web for more. Using those pics for scale, I whipped up a quick model in Sketchup to figure out component placement and get an overall sense of size.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
Hardware List:

Processor - Intel i7 7700K
Motherboard - EVGA Z270 Stinger mITX
Memory - Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 16Gb kit
Storage - Crucial MX300 SSD 525Gb x2
Graphics - NVIDIA GTX1080ti
PSU - Corsair SFX 600w
WC - Primochill tube, fittings, pump-res, cpu block
Peripherals - Corsair RGB Strafe keyboard, M65 Pro mouse, RGB fans, RGB Node Lighting kit
Qualifying product - Cooler Master XtraFlo 120mm fan

-----------------------------------------------------------------

I'll be going with an ITX format, so the case will be fairly small and lightweight. For materials, I'll be scavenging pieces from my scrap pile as much as possible, much in the same way Rey constructed her speeder from scavenged starship parts.


Once I got the sizing down, I could finally start construction, starting with the basic frame. I cut the rear bulkhead from an old Lian Li V2000 case panel ;-)


These square tubes will serve as internal support pieces for the rear engines.


I'll be attaching the ends to the bulkhead with steel angle brackets.




Brackets pop-riveted into place.


Here's the front side of the bulkhead after fastening the tubes.


Next is the main frame construction.. I'm repurposing these aluminum shelving supports. Cutting V notches allows me to simply bend it into a rectangle.


All notches cut and piece bent!


Placed on the bulkhead..


Dont mind the pencil markings, that was from an old mod made a long long time ago, in a garage far far away. :P


2nd one done..


Next up will be connecting both frame ends together with cross beams to complete the main part of the frame. Hopefully, I'll be able to tackle that tonight!

Got more framing done over the last couple nights. I pilfered a motherboard tray from an old case and cut it down..


I trimmed away all the exraneous parts, leaving enough material to make mounting tabs on the edges.


Aluminum angle bar makes up the basic frame in the center..


..and the motherboard tray provides rigidity. Pop rivets will be used to secure it to the frame.


Next up will be finishing the frame with the second C-channel piece, which will also serve as the radiator support.

Got the front part of the frame fabbed up over the weekend..

Started with a paper template, derived from my Sketchup model.


I didn't have any more large pieces of aluminum panel, but since the front bulkhead will serve as the radiator mount, most of the center will be cut out for airflow. So I could use smaller bits to piece it together..


The box frame holds the Corsair 120mm RGB fans in place, and holds all the pieces together. I opted for a stronger steel C channel for this, rather than the white aluminum one like in the rear.


The 240mm radiator fits perfectly on the front side of the bulkhead.


Once the fans are fastened to the rad, the bulkhead is sandwiched in between..


With the entire front assembly taped to the rest of the frame, you can see the Speeder shape coming together.


Here's a shot with a spare EVGA mITX motherboard placed to give you an idea of internal spacing.


Once the framing is secured, I can start making brackets for mounting the PSU, SSD's, graphic card, and pump-res. Stay tuned!

Here is some of the hardware that will be going into the Speeder Bike...

The processor I will be using is an Intel i7 7700k.


A big thank you to Corsair! They came through in a big way, providing a 600w SFX psu, RGB fan and lighting kit, and a keyboard and mouse to boot!


Crucial set me up with some awesome gear as well.. a 16gb DDR4 memory kit, and two MX300 SSD's!


And for my qualifying products, I'll be using these fans from Cooler Master.


I'll post more hardware shots as I get them in. I'll be getting a Z270 Stinger mITX motherboard from EVGA when it becomes available, some really killer WC gear from Primochill, and maybe even a little something from NVIDIA...

Time for the Monday Weekend Progress Report! Got some actual hardware mounted..

After some deliberation and pondering, I decided to go with panel mount extensions for the power, USB, ethernet, and displayport cables. This way, all connections will be at the rear, below the engines, rather than having cables dangling out the bottom. So to ensure there's enough space for all the cabling, I raised the power supply location up on the back bulkhead, and cut a notch in the side channel so it sits flush.


Then I made a corner bracket from 1/2" angle bar to secure the Corsair SFX PSU to the frame..


I also made a 3/8" C bracket to hold the other side of the PSU in place.


Measured and drilled holes to match those in the PSU..


..And drilled mounting holes in the frame.


With the PSU done, I started on the SSD's. I took advantage of the center opening in the motherboard tray, positioning the drives so I can easily route the SATA and power cables. I used motherboard stand-offs to raise the drives up a bit.


Here's an overall shot of the SSD's with cables connected, utilizing the access hole in the tray. Spare mobo in for effect..


With the SSD's checked off the list, next up is the video card. I had originally had the video card placed horizontally in the concept rendering, facing the side panel.. But now with the power supply mounted up higher than planned, there isnt enough space.. So I will be mounting it vertically, which actually works out better for aligning to the rotated motherboard. I plugged the card directly into the mobo, but it blocks the airflow to the radiator, and you can't really see it.


So with the help of a PCIe riser cable, I can mount the card away from the radiator, facing the side panel..


I should be able to fab up a mounting bracket for that in the next couple days. Thanks for watching!

Having some trouble acquiring the correct repulsorlifts.. This first batch I received were out of an old Imperial Patrol Transport, and they were so strong it flipped the Speeder over on its nose! No way to dial it down either, so I had to order smaller ones with less gravitational push.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

Well this last weekend was a productive one! My SeeMeCNC printer finally got a good long-overdue workout, with the printing of all the engine pieces.

After gathering a healthy amount of Speeder reference pics, I drew up the engine pieces in Sketchup and scaled them to the correct size. And thanks to an STL export extension, I was able to save them directly out of Sketchup and load the files right into MatterControl, which is SeeMeCNC's printer software. You can see the interface in the background as the printer spits out the first engine nozzle..


Not bad! I'm only printing in standard resolution (.2mm layer height).. the Rostock Max2 will do .1mm, but will also take twice as long to print. This nozzle took about 4hrs.


I devised a simple insert to mount all the engine pieces onto the box tubing, and printed them out. I printed them separately to avoid having a bunch of supports inside each piece.


The inserts fit snugly onto the tubing, and keeps everything centered.




Both nozzles printed..


.. and both with inserts, mounted on the tubing..


The center engine piece was next, and inserts printed for it as well.




For the rest of the engine pieces, I opted to just use cardboard shipping tube, since they are just basic cylinders.. and I happen to have 3" dia. tube on hand. I just skinned them with sheet styrene.


After adding inserts to the cardboard tube pieces, I assembled both engines onto the box tubing..


The center pieces are the same on both engines, just reversed.


And an overall shot of the Speeder bike with engines.


I still need to make a couple end caps for the cylinder pieces to close them up, which I can just cut from styrene and glue them on.

More printing on the way, so stay tuned!

More printing goodness!

After the engines, I started on the back panel that will cover the rear bulkhead area around the engines. This was a pretty big piece, so I had to separate it into two prints. This is the bottom half..


Woke up the next morning to a perfect print!


Here's how it fits on the rear bulkhead, around the engine tube..


Next is the top half, just finished..


Both halves together..


..and placed around the engines. The tips are a little rough on the top, but can be smoothed out.


an overall shot of the Speeder..


Next I'll be working on the front grill pieces and front nose. That should be interesting!

Here's your Monday Mod Update for March 27th..

Got the Primochill pump and res mounted! About the only place I could mount the pump was in between the motherboard and fans. It was a tight squeeze, but it will fit! Using the rubber gasket, I marked the holes to drill for the mounting brackets.


After positioning the pump directly on the mobo tray, I noticed the top input port was just a little off-center, case-wise..


...so I added a 1/4" shim to bring it out.


Now it lines up perfectly with the reservoir.


I wanted to put the Primochill CTR tube res across the top, so I positioned it in the center using a piece of tape to support it while I took measurements.






Once I took down all the measurements, I jumped into Sketchup and whipped up a special two-piece mounting bracket to cradle the res, with mounting tabs on each end.


Exported the STL and printed out two sets in ABS.


These took just about 1 1/2 hours to print.


Brackets installed, and res supported!


But... just when I think I'm done and can move onto the next thing, I find out there's a problem.. With the res in the center of the case, I won't have room for the video card! Back to the drawing board...


Going back into Sketchup, I revise my bracket design to move the reservoir over 3/4", but still using the same top pieces. The old centered bracket is on the bottom, with the revised offset bracket on top..


With the new bottoms printed, I now have room for the video card.


Great, but now what about the tubing lining up with the pump input port?


Not a problem with the CTR res and it's 4-port top cap! I can just choose the next hole over. But I was lazy and simply rotated the cap 90º until the tube lined up again.


Only thing left to mount now is the video card, and I should be able to take care of that tonight or tomorrow. With the res bracket now holding the top securely in place, I just have to come up with a bottom bracket for the IO plate to sit on.
