    Used this pump in a couple of builds now and trust it, so picked the Pacific P1 again.
    As above, wont be painting this time, instead covering half with the 3D covers and the other half will be out of sight to help keep wires to a minimum.

    This is just a template for the main part that will be used.

    20180713_210006.jpg

    Got myself some new airbrush paints via smdesign ,great help and advice given.
    the black and chrome will be used on the pumps and a couple more things.

    Using the template I made originally to check everything would fit I then went to work cutting some clear Plexiglas that will cover most the wires and house the pumps.

    Although I do have a hole cutter, I like to free hand sometimes 20180719_204247(0).jpg

    This is just a hand full of the designs I have made from scratch for several parts of the case, inside and out.
    Some are going to be used for to covers, stencils for paintwork and after some 3D editing I will be using some for 3D prints.

    The 3D printing is something I just started to learn for this build, as a bit of a noob its probably taken most of my time but it's a great tool to have
    once masted.

    Looking forward to using my first Ryzen CPU.

    For one of the sides I'm making some covers, starting with the base, some clear Plexiglas that will be wrapped.

    20180731_202812.jpg

    Using my newest tool the 3D printers, I have made some 3D designs that will be sanded and painted then added to the Plexiglas to make the panels pop.

    20180802_025426.jpg

    Although the Steadytech silver looked nice, I decided to prime and paint them chrome

    20180808_001911.jpg

    20180808_211227.jpg

    I did airbrush the design below at first but then went with changing the design to 3D to add even more depth.
    To help it stand out from the chrome, this will be painted in a darker shade. 20180813_083215.jpg

    Really love how the black panther has turned out, #steadyteck PLA in siver with some simoniz Satin black, auto air silver and matt black brush on.
    some fine detailing to be do closer to the end of the project.

    Although I have done some full size panther helmets, for the build i'm going with half face that will be used on the outside of the case.
    I want to try keep as much of the original glass and outer case visible as possible.

    The second part of the PSU cover, using the same design I made for the vinyl I then reworked them so they could be printed in clear steadytech PLA to add more depth to the cover/covers instead of having the usual 2D.
    This will be the first time im using lighting that will be projected through the 3D prints, I have done similar with my virtual build for TT a couple of years back, but that was just a 2D version of what im doing this time.

    Project Virtual (2016)
    This is the look im going for, but in 3D.

    Thanks, and yes I can share some settings but I must have around 30 or so now, I tend to change them almost every print until I find the perfect ones for each type of print.
    most of them need a lot of work doing after the print, the black panther needed less but it was a very long print to help keep maximum quality around 30hrs.
    For most other things I try keep it between 3 and 6hrs when sanding and filling is a must.

    Message via FB if you have it @megadeblow or @Rob deluce.

    Some designs for the front of the case.
    I have reworked both twice, depending on time I might have another change depending how I like them when painted and in place. bandicam 2018-07-12 20-51-26-632.jpg bandicam 2018-07-13 15-34-46-861.jpg bandicam 2018-07-15 14-24-03-311.jpg

    Carrying-on with the designs for the front of the case, here we have MK1 set of covers, im now on to MK3 as I always see room for improvement and its hard to resist.

    20180717_025458.jpg

    As with almost all the parts for this build, lots of sanding, filling, painting and more sanding.

    20180723_133619.jpg

    20180717_025546.jpg

    i used the black panther helmet for inspiration when making all the patterns you will see throughout the build.

    As with the one above this is MK1.

    20180715_002358.jpg

    With the MK1, the purple would light up and it was matt black with chrome.
    I decided I wasn't %100 happy so started almost from scratch again.


    20180717_183050.jpg


    This was the start and the end of MK2, thicker text and no more purple.

    This is the start of the final TT front logo and surround, this time the height is slightly less, higher pattern will be added to this and I have made the TT separate from the main backing, this is to help make sanding and painting a bit more easy.

    20180811_152243.jpg

    Also added my Deblow logo within the TT logo.

    Here we have the completed panther spears, all grouped together to help save you all a bit of scrolling [​IMG]

    Putty, primer, matt black, clear followed with silver/chrome and some leather work.
    Also lots of sanding as usual [​IMG]
    Very happy with the results so well worth the time making.

    With the fans fitted I started designing the covers, 4 for the front and 3 in the back.
    All designed from scratch and 3D printed then painted, two different styles used.

    For the back ones I went with a claw type with all the main front of the fan left exposed for maximum air and RGB goodness [​IMG]

    For the front fans as they was facing with the back showing I decided to cover all the wire and original plastic with new covers.

    For the water, I have been playing with some Thermaltake, Blue, white, clear and purple to get the shade I want to use.
