Cross by Red Harbinger - Final pics!



Here I am with a new project
As some of you might know, ever since I finished the L3p D3sk project all 6 of us have been busy with the company named Red Harbinger. This team exists out of these great persons. One of them, Roboduck, a respected member over here


First project ... to improve, re-design and compatibilize the L3p D3sk.




This will be completely different compared to my other buildlogs..
It's the build of the first prototype available for the market soon.
I thought, if I have to test it anyway....
why not make a buildlog and use this opportunity to get as much as possible input from you readers.

Please keep in mind this is a prototype.
Few things we already changed months ago in the design but aren't in this prototype yet.
- Leg height 2 1/2" lower
- Illuminating the legs
- Lots of small things
- Got a dual system version, should've been single


So here we go!
Can you imagine how excited I was after 12 months having this in front of my door?




Right after unpacking it, just had to see how it would look like




'Few' hours later.




Updates:

1. Unpacking the desk
2. Renders
3. Cross buildroom
4. The hardware part 1
5. The hardware part 2
6. Inspecting the prototype
7. Installing the prototype
8. Modding the prototype
9. The hardware part 3
10. Tubing and filling
11. Before the event
12. Firstlook 2012
13. Back to Cross
14. Modding continues
15. Monitormountmod
16. Monitormountmod 2
17. Block Polishing
18. Final pics
19. Final video

What an brilliant idea bringing this too market, the ultimate in pc cases

Is there going to be someway of mounting monitor arms to the back of the desk to completely free up the desktop.

As Peter said this desk is an early prototype so what you see here may not reflect what the final product will look like. The legs for example have been completely re-designed, although they still have the Z shape, they are constructed very differently and are much stronger.

Like Peter said, were here to listen so tell us what you like/don't like.

Seriously though, it does look cool. It should be quite interesting to follow this one

Well based on what your mods turn out like and what I've seen of Roboduck's designs in the past, I think it's safe to assume that this will turn out to be one brilliant project and the final product is likely to be fantastic.

Can't wait to see this hit the market!

Any ideas of what sort of price range is being aimed for the final market release, or is it still in debate?


...oh and sub'd of course.

Price range in the US without shipping was calculated at $1980 a few months back.
However this amount changes on how much we order from the manufacturer.
At this moment we're fully busy with investors/kickstarter to get this price down

First of all, again want to remind you this is a prototype.

Unpacking.

So .... there it was.
No idea what the actual weight was incl all glass panels and some other stuff I needed.
I think around 90-100Kg.
I was 'home alone' and tried pulling/pushing it, but didn't move an inch.




5 minutes later it even started to rain




Since there wasn't a neighbour available either I came up with a thousands of years old idea.
It worked pretty well :P




My heart still bouncing. Package was just as big as my couch.




First top package contained these panels for the legs (old design) and the glass for the shelf.
(Other top package contained some hardware you'll see later)




Glass for the shelf connected to the legs.
It has a frosted bottom and rounded edges.




And a lasered logo on top.




The big package exists out of 3 smaller boxes. Top one contains the desk itself and all smaller stuff needed for the desk.




As you can see the desk will come partly assembled.




Second level contains the big top glass panel






With a frosted bottom edge, also a small logo and off course rounded edges.




The third and last box contains the assembled legs, backside cover (where PSU and all cables go), and the panel between the legs for more stability.
(This panel got a great improvement in the next prototype on looks and stability, you'll see it later)




Unpacking the small stuff.




Leg and backside cover on the background.




Unboxing the desk.




Back side.




Front.
It's incredibly huge ... I knew the size but still the only word that came up in me was WOW!




Well.. I was still on my own, so had to find a way to lift it on the legs just for a few photos








Really love this color and way of powdercoating.
Off course it will be available in many colors/finishes.






The grommets!
Well I got a few spares I guess.




The switches. What color do you guys prefer?




My choice is black/red led




Glass panel on top of the desk. (Still without rubber seal)




As you guys can see it's pretty high, we lowered the next prototype about 2 1/2".








I found a good purpose for that quite unhandleable box



Tomorrow I'll post some (concept) renders we're busy with incl. the monitor stand.
