I'm trying to figure out what exactly to comment, but it escapes me at the moment. I'll just keep watching and maybe it will come to me.

I agree with you on sanding the CF down and adding another layer of it to make those 45 degree angles more defined instead of rounded.

I can't visualize how this will turn out but your dedication and perfectionism is a force to be reckoned with. *cracks beer open* I sit here and await for the next update.

+rep and 5 stars
Lol, I can honestly say that's the last analogy I expected to hear in this thread. Well played Rob.

Yes, I'm much happier with the angles now. It took quite a bit of sanding to get them down, but it was worth it.

Truthfully, it's likely overkill for anyone building a computer mod.

Is that helpful?
Craig, you are the wrong person to call anything overkill.

It's still looking great, and I think that orange will look great next to the carbon black.

Wow, thanks! I'm not sure I'm worthy of that praise yet. I've still got so much work to do. Lol, I'll admit that the CF is getting all of the attention, but the internals are where the real work will happen.

Touché! I guess not. If it wasn't for overkill, I wouldn't have nearly as much fun modding.

Yes, the orange and black are going to be a killer combination. I was initially disappointed that the kevlar lost it's brightness with the resin. However, after looking at it last night, it's got a deeper, more sinister look that I'm really starting to love. It somehow really fits the name OSIDIAS.

If it weren't for pictures like the following, I'd take the Kevlar/CF blend, and make it disappear... Yes, it's a royal pain to work with. I knew it would be, but until you are actually working with it and trying to make it do what you want, you have no idea...







It doesn't like to cut cleanly, no matter the process. The Kevlar fibers really have a mind of their own. I've found that I get the best results if I start cutting with a metal carbide cutting wheel. That cuts quickly, but not cleanly. I then followup with a reinforced cutting disk. This cuts much more cleanly, but it's slow. I can't take much material off with each pass. After that, I use a file to straighten the cuts. Then finally, I finish up with a 320 grit wet/dry sand paper. This does a decent job of cleaning the edge up, but it takes a light touch. So, that's one heck of a process for a single cut!

Time to cut! I used a yardstick as a straight edge, and followed up with my line taping method.



An hour later I had two sides done... This is gonna take a while. Lol.

Ah, so the materials have a different texture/feel to them. Would you say the CF is 'crunchy', and the kevlar 'chewy'?

I wonder if a table saw would work, or tear the hell out of the material...

You need to take your new panel out in the sun for a photo. Indoor lighting isn't cutting it.

na, the waterjet would blow the weave apart rather than cutting, you've got to remember the water and its abrasive is doing close to Mach 2 upon leaving the nozzle, that is a help of a lot of pressure behind it, also the biggest problem with the weave is sealing the cut ends, they tend to wick water like crazy.




also craig, ever think of getting an ultrasonic cutter? Works on solids as well, seen people cut CD's no problem

Kevlar is a b*tch to cut once it's been formed and set.
At the plant we have a tablesaw with 2xblades. The first is massive, ~30"diameter, which makes the cut - the second is slightly thicker and much smaller, ~6", and it cleans the cut.

Both have special blades which need frequent changing and both spin at ungodly speeds.

Your best bet with kevlar is waterjet.

-Looks great BTW- you're doing a great job. I'm loving this case mate... loving it!

langer agrees with me
ive seen a commercial for a local machinist shop and they have a vid of the water jet cutting through
2 or 3" of solid metal
so if it can cut that
i had a really good feeling that it would make short work of CF and Kevlar
