    It's not easy to translate "Artigianale", this word reminds to the work done by a craftsman in a small factory... This is the "message" I would like to spread with this mod


    This new scratch-build has been in stand by for a long time, more than 3 years :worried:
    The project obviously changed several times but at the end I've been stunned by an image founded on the net!!
    I freezed all the different designs and I started working on this pic to develop my new pc-case. :rock:


    This worklog will not begin with Hardware list simply because I haven't the Hardware yet, except for one 240mm and 120mm radiators.

    You won't see a lot of renders because I am not so good with 3d software, but I made just two screenshots to show how the hw will be placed (i know the reservoir is too small, but don't worry..will be replaced with a standard one )

    The "wont' see" list is ended so let's start modding.:naughty:
    I made a side draw 1:1 scale to help me taking measures without errors
    Case will be 30cm tall, 43cm long and 22cm wide (more or less)

    Internal structure

    Main material are:
    • wood recicled from hold windows frame and fruit box
    • some cardboards
    • screws
    • styrofoam to fill up

    Thanks to my new small bench sander and a scroll saw I made easily the central frame

    Scroll saw in action to cut one of the two top template-shape

    Internal structure - final part

    I gave a second life to some strawberries boxes. :D

    I shortened the frame because I fixed the top template-shapes in a different way (two wodden supports, some hot glue and spikes)
    and they weren't at the same drawing's quota.

    Spikes helps me again to fix the bottom stand

    From this different view you can appreciate the "V" shape of the top side of the case :naughty:


    [​IMG]



    I write down the right position for the main components such as radiator, fans, psu and vga.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]




    At the end I decided to make a cardboard replica for PSU and VGA and a wodden one for 240 radiator to see real dimensions.

    View from the back side were I fixed a new template-shape

    Now I can start playing with styrofoam :lol::naughty::naughty:

    See you soon

    Do you say "Necroposting" ?
    No, because this mod is not dead :nono::naughty:

    I found the right inspiration so I am back on track.

    The styrofoam blocks were first glued to each other and then to the internal frame.
    This is the result after some sanding :happy:

    The next step is to define the front-profile and make some little adjustments before moving to the right side of the case.

    "Main material are:
    • wood recicled from hold windows frame and fruit box
    • some cardboards
    • screws
    • styrofoam to fill up"

    You are right, but sometimes you loose something during translation and it's better to keep the word in the original language :winking:

    :naughty:

    I am working... no wait, planning is better, how to make the other side of the case.
    It's simmetric and to make the same shape could be tricky.
    Few days ago while I was looking at a Blender's tutorial :eeek::idea: I "saw the light" :hehe:
    Be patient...

    soon :dremel::winking:

    As a sculptor, use your eyes, hands and touch sense to do it !
