Awesome piece made there.

Unlucky on the first pci/io back piece, I never did get around to perfecting the bending method for a 1mm panel version, made some smaller bending fingers for the different sections of bend though, before perfecting that I started using 5 layers instead to make a solid one after seeing a billet 1 piece one on a project called Limey & fell in love with the idea which translates to multiple layers brilliantly.
Thanks Wayne, funny you should mention billet 1 piece.. after bending the failed plate it was my first thought!! luckily (or unluckily) i didn't have a piece of ally in the workshop that would have worked.. but that put me back in line to do it properly..

Plexi centre looks great too. Maybe overlaid with some alu with the same/similar designs to the leg?
Thanks Crapman, was really happy with the way it turned out.. and a nice suggestion about some layers there.. will definitely look into it!!

If you can do it do it mate.

Billet PCI/IO is so.

Just make absolutely sure your model is very very correct so it isn't a waste.

It looks clean and nice and blue would suit it perfectly and you should go with the plexi midplate.

Im going to try using a plain sheet again, but bending the profile first and then cutting the inserts out.. if it fails again though i will go with a billet.. will try track down a CNC milling machine first though to try reduce the chance of error of doing it manually on the mill.. Im probably going to be replicating the hinge system for my screens with billet pieces.. went yesterday to pick up my order and they only sent 1 hinge (i thought it was a set of 4) which was really surprising based on the cost of a single hinge.. but of course being a mod junkie the first thing i did was wrip the hinge apart to see how it all works and see if i could replicate it myself

Thanks riekmaharg2, still seeing if i can tweek the spindicator to work of CPU usage rather than HDD usage.. Im a complete noob at arduino boards but this could be a great opportunity for me to practice

Thanks Sarakon Im thinking of using both actually, and then cutting a design into the plexi for a "lighting" effect.. think it will bring a little life to the center of the build.. still working on some concepts there..

And on we go...

Yo yo peeps
A big thanks to tekonivel, Shurika, RebootTech, Waynio, l3p, Samaya, Sarakon, KoSoVaR^, xtoxm, Balder, paz45 & The_Crapman for the well wishes with the new baby, Mom and little one are doing very well and settled in at home.. as for my sleep patterns.. well yes those leave much to be desired (& I have no disillusions that this will be remedied anytime soon)

Been home all week but have had little to no time to work on the desk, changing diapers and catching up on sleep has been the order of most days.. But I decided to do some work on the scroll saw today and with the afford mentioned lack of sleep me thinks it may not have been the brightest of idea's... but I walked away with all my fingers in tact so all good.

I have been playing with ideas for the central section, where I was thinking either aluminium or plexi.. I have decided to go with the aluminium with some plexi designs.. started cutting some out and will see which I will end up using in the end

I laid out some templates on a off-cut piece of 5mm plexi i had lying around


Basic shape cut, now to give it some file lovin and then flame polish, my intention is to then light this up with some LED's that will be connected to the fader I built.


Will hopefully head into the workshop tomorrow to get some work done on the desk
