Part of the design was inspired by the Audi R8, so i guess that's where the sporty and part comes from. I love its subtle aggressive look.

the solvent looks very dericious and tempting if you want to quench your thirst

Update!
Don't have much time to work on the project today. Studying for exam tomorrow morning
Will have a bunch of updates on Monday. Some really neat things are going to be done, so stay tuned.

Attached and bonded the inner cover for the PSU. It was difficult to install those long struts that hold the rectangular panels together as the most of the leg assembly had to be disassembled.



The back legs are raised by a few scrap acrylic pieces, will add the HDD bay in soon.



Still need to glue two more panels to the inner cover. They're on angles so the edges of the panels need to be filed to a point in order for it to fit snugly.



Sneaky peaky at the hard drive caddy (which still hasn't been glued together)

Update!

Back for some more modding

Firstly I bought some 10mm diameter alu rods and 20mm tube extrusions.
Got a pretty good discount by Ullrich Aluminum



Only problem rods weren't 10mm diameter, were 12mm
not a big deal, going back to sort it out

So I called the fabrication guys at Ullrich when I got there they already had the correct diameter rods cut.

Fitting the rods to the connecting brackets that are glued to the front legs. This greatly increased the strength of the front fan mount area.



Also caused some bowing of the red truss frames. Need to sort that out.



Tired inserting the rods into the HDD cage support, it was an extremely tight fit. Only managed to get to half way through (possibly because I glued two 6mm sheets to make each part, they weren't aligned perfectly - to the 0.01mm)
The accuracy of the laser cutter is 0.001mm, I'm not sure about the tolerance of the extruded rod.
Going to sand those holes so it fits snugly.



Meanwhile, the 20mm tubes also were a very tight fit. Had to do some light sanding.



Only inserted a few fins but you get the jist of it if you saw the CAD drawing.
Reason why the columns aren't touching the ground is it's going to be supported.





They are going to be polished so have that picture in your mind.


Said I was going to do some bending and bending I did.
Was heating it with a heat gun, problem was that it didn't turn out picture perfect.

There is obviously some distortion like the part had shrunk during the heating/cooling.



This is how perfectly the unbent part sits on the leg.



Damn.
I can't rely on skills with electric hand tools


I'll redesign these parts so it doesn't require any bending (probably just gluing)

I think that thats not unusual.

You would usually buy with a +2mm tolerance to allow for machining. (metal ON condition)

This project is really nice, although im not a big plastic fan.

Will look ace with them rods polished up.
