    Hi bit-tech

    I am at home for 2 weeks now and another week i have to stay home... :wallbash:

    Luckily the project goes on and i can print the whole day...

    [​IMG]

    So now the frame is a little bigger than the old one so i had to split it into 4 pieces because the printer isn't big enough... xD

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The first pic you see is the cover for the LED that lights out the Vault-Tec logo and the second pic is the Nixie-Tube mount at the moment not finished yet the screw holes for the socket are missing.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is the construction of the on/off switch, to much pieces and too complicated to assembling and maybe a source of error.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So i decide to refresh the old concept, much easier and better than the first one.
    The only thing i have to resolve is that the holotape comes out of it self of the tape deck that the switch isn't pressed the whole time, maybe a system with spring will help to come back out from it self...

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Now a small rendering shows how it should look like when it's finished.
    The hardware is not yet the one used, it is only a template from grabcad.com you can free download a lot of stuff there not only. computer stuff.

    I don't know when I can release the next big updates for the aluminum frame because our companies are still closed for a week and many parts are missing ...
    Also for the keyboard i am searching all the parts i need but its not so easy to find exactly what i need.
    The next problem is the cooling of the system and the hardware at the moment it is not a sponsor build so i have to buy by my own but let us see what the future bring. :rock:

    I wish you a nice weekend at home and stay healthy!!!

    Hi bit-tech

    I can finally show you the aluminum frame!
    I cleaned and assembled it to make sure that all the parts fit together.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Tomorrow I will get the new side panels because the frame is now different from the wooden one, so I had to have new side panels milled.
    I will add more pictures soon.

    The detail you can get with a 3d printer nowadays is outstanding.... the real skill is knowing how to get that detail ! amazing job so far

    Thank you verry much for the feedback! :clap:

    Here you see the old concept in wood and the new one in aluminum, as you can see there are small differences... xD

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What I really need is a better place to get the worklog photos for even better shots, with photo lights, and maybe a black / gray background :rollingeyes:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Today I was able to get the last wooden parts, now they are still being prepared to match the others, then we can start assembling the terminal for the first time.

    Stay tuned!

    Sanding will be your best friend they said.... i was laughing... but they were right... :duh:
    I wasn't idle, but it's a lot of work to make it perfect. xD


    A very small update:

    [​IMG]

    First layer of two component putty

    [​IMG]

    First layer of primer and putty of the holes that were not visible the first time
    And sanding again until all holes are sealed with putty...


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    With this mechanism I can insert a screw from the outside in and screw it to the frame with a nut.
    The screw is glued with thread adhesive so that everything is in place, the screw holes are puttied from the outside to get a clean surface.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Next update it will be a little special so stay tuned :rock:

    This is fantastic. My approach is usually glue it or screw it, but there are so many mechanisms here working in tandem, all lined up precisely. Excellent work.
