hi thanks for the reply's and no it is not heavy it is pritty light .
Nice Work... Looking forward to this seeing build develop...
Very nice . Dont mess it up and five stars guarantee ;-)
Very nice start. I love the way the frame goes together. That rear panel looks great.
thanks for the replys, I am not planing to mess it up . I am designing the dvd/ hdd bracket so I can make it wile the alu bars are gone, I ame thinking of making it from plexi glas, also I am thinking of making the reservoir (for my water cooling) my self . So there is going to be allot more to come I hope .
see ya, julian
hello, here is a small update of what I ame going to make, it are simpel drawings of the sidewall and the top of the hdd/dvd bracket, the 4 M5 holes in the middel of the top plate are for mounting it to my case, the 4 small lines in the side are suposed to be m3 holes so I can mount the sidewalls to the top . In the sidewall you can see 8 small groves they are for mounting the hdd/ dvd to the bracket , on top of the sidewall you can see 2 small holes those are for mounting it to the top plate. All the plates are from perspex:
side plates 5mm
top plate 8mm
4x M3x10 countersunk black steel screws
4x M5x10 countersunk black steel screws
2x hdd coolers so it fits in the same side bracket as the dvd and it ceeps them cool .
see ya soon with pictures of the bracket, julian
It all starts as a sketch. Good to see you working on it. The finished product should look great.
Very nice metalwork indeed
I like it a lot. Good engineering work!
thanks for the replys/compliments I am doing my best for it . Firts of all I am still waiting for the alu frame to come back in black from the anodiser so I dont have any thing of that, what I do have are some pictures of the hdd/ dvd bracket I made on my work.
I milled the hdd/dvd bracket today it is a easy and simple disigne but he it looks cool. Here are some foto's of the perspex plates and the finale product, I milled it on the same kunzman as used before.
So I used 5mm perspex for the side pannels and 8mm for the top pannel, I use 4 M3x +-12mm black steel countersunk hexagon screws and 4 M5 screws to mount it to the case.
the 3 plates I used:
tapping the M3 in the top plate:
the side pannels 1 milled and 1 not milled:
all the pannels next to each other:
some different views of the hdd/dvd:
and here it is with 1 old dvd player mounted in it:
I hope you like it as mutch as I do,
see you next time hope fully with the the black frame back from the anodiser, julian
I've sent you a PM a while ago, did you see that one? The bays look pro!
Very clean, very nice!
That is looking sweet. Love the drive bays.
hello, yes I found the PM yesterday I will put it on there this week. thanks for the replys and yeh I think it looks pretty nice also, but that is the thing with plexiglass if it is shiny and see trough it is nice (but that is my opinion).
see you later, julian
I like this Drive tray good job
hello, a quick update:
The alu frame is back in black . I only mounted the frame togheter because otherwise I risk to damage the perspex plates.
all the components next to each other:
the frame mounted 1:
the frame mounted 2:
the frame mounted 3:
see you next time, julian
OOOOOK, black frame is awesome
No joke. Thing thing looks pro!
It does look pro. Just one question. Why not gloss black? For this mod I think it would go much better.
for a pro look you dont go GLOSS, you go SATIN. nuff said!
