UPDATE

UPDATE 1

So at the start of project I bought steel profiles and welded them to the main frame.







After that I drew first parts and laser-cutted them



And welded them into main frame





Then I cutted other profiles and placed them into. These profiles will be beams for the next sheet steel.





After all welding I sanded welds with a grinder.

Drew and printed the mainboard holes layout for 100% precision.

UPDATE 4

So I drew and lasercutted last parts for case.



The side panel. Will be with the plexi.



I asked my good friend who has access to CNC if he could mill special plexi for me - no problem



Milling the edges.



Detailed view on the edge of plexi.



I also lasercutted and bend the front panel with ROG logo - because of ROG Maister name of this project and because I very like this logo.



Bought some plexi to do special effect with ROG logo. Some led strips and plexi will do awesome effect.






Effect of "hearbeating/breathing" you can see in this video

I apologise in advance for people who think my reply might be out of order.

But not only does it remind me of it, it almost seems like a copy. The shape of the case, the exact same grill design and even the rog logo in the exact same spot.

It does not make your metalwork less impressive. But this makes me kind of sad

Looks like it's coming along great man! I love the minimalist design.

A solid steel case... You don't mess around do you :P

Btw we should start a "I-use-diagonal-rounded-slots-for-my-fan-grill-design" club
I'm sure there would be no shortage of members.
