    Hi together,
    here comes another "storybook".

    I begin with the project last year before the german championship.
    Because an error right from the planning I don’t let the jury rate the CON.
    Therefore I have another Chance this year.

    The material: Granite, aluminium and a lot of water in front of the monitor.


    For your Information first the assembling until today.

    Und mich erst.

    Das hoffe ich doch.


    Now I start with the rear plate. I use the film to mark the cutting line.
    [​IMG]

    Before the sawing must the drill work a little bit.
    [​IMG]

    Just like planned.
    [​IMG]


    For the Power supply cutout I use a part from a old Case
    [​IMG]

    After drilling the holes it be a perfect guidance
    [​IMG]

    Just a little more straighten is needed for a perfect look.
    [​IMG]

    Not only a old case can be used. Also a broken Power supply is helpful.
    [​IMG]

    The TFC Triebwerk will be mountet direct. For this reason I cutt 4 M4 threads.
    [​IMG]

    To get a claen angle, I use the bolt-on "template" und the
    DREMEL-Schleifbänder.
    [​IMG]

    Done.
    [​IMG]

    A first preview

    ... to be continued

    To connect the fan internally it is necessary to break through this wall.
    [​IMG]

    A label helps to get a clear view.
    [​IMG]

    I dont want a hole for the whole connector.
    [​IMG]

    Just a push on the little hooks and the thing is done.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    How do you like it?

    After the assembling with some heat shrinkable tubing.
    [​IMG]


    Self-explanatory
    [​IMG]

    This holes are for the ...
    [​IMG]

    ... electrical power supply for the other "TFC Triebwerke"
    The Switch change between 5 & 12 Volt.

    very nice! I really like the granite and blue plexi and the control switches. Can you explain/show how they are connected?
    I don't understand the extra fan length in the back... but I'm sure more pics will explain... :D

    Of course I can show you how they are connected:

    I take a USB Gamepad...
    [​IMG]

    Some micro-pushbuttons and a old IDE kable. I like to use old parts. :D
    [​IMG]

    The result:
    [​IMG]

    Sorry, I dont have pictures from the mounting. Maybe this can help. It was one of the first sketch a show the mode of operation.
    [​IMG]

    The final connection: Just plug in the USB plug in the back. :D

    Here you'll find the Software PadControl at SPACEFLAKES. KLICK HERE



    I dont understand your question: "...the extra fan length in the back..."!
    What du you mean? I yust mount a "Case-Fan".
    Surely it is not a simpe Fan. It`s a "Triebwerk" from TFC (The Feser Company)

    Sweet! I like to reuse old parts as well! +rep for this and the software link

    by extra fan length, I was thinking that you have an additional fan on the back. It's a pretty thick fan. I was thinking it looks odd sticking out the back, is all.

    UPDATE:

    No real progress. Just a little motivation:

    At this point: Thanks to MSI

    The flange will last long. :D
    [​IMG]

    I use the insulation from this old cable to protect my illumination wires.
    [​IMG]

    Complete.

    Later more.

    Today I start with the Radiator:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Here again the TFC Triebwerke.
    [​IMG]


    For the optical part I mount some TFC Shrouds.
    [​IMG]


    With the Triebwerk and the shroud comes a lot of accessories...
    [​IMG]


    but for my combination I need some longer screws.
    [​IMG]


    A M3 thread rod and a cut-off wheel are self-explanatory
    [​IMG]


    A grinding disk for the DREMEL are perfect to cleen the cut.
    [​IMG]

    Done.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    The LED Module all have a 4-pin power plug. I am sure that is a good idea. But for "Cold Eye" I need a special thing.
    [​IMG]


    Cut to the right length. The rest is best-known.
    [​IMG]

    Now I have two plugs. One for the Fans and one for the LED.
    [​IMG]

    Here the back.
    [​IMG]


    Final result:
    [​IMG]

    later more...

    What did you forgot last year while your planning this con? From the Tv report I know that you had some trouble with the water inside the big eye. Do you have to make some parts new?

    I find your project interesting, I hope to see more than in the short film on Pro7 last year.
