    You should have this on a swivel mount hanging from the ceiling with a stepper motor and laser sensor setup to track peoples movements as the walk through the room :D would be seriously un nerving to have that track you as you move through the area. :rock:

    Unfortunally i have no enough skills to make this. You're right, it would be funny, especially to make turret speak like in Portal 2 :D

    Thank you. It's very nice to be able to offer something new to such masters as you are. The trick with laser printer copy and an iron can still apply for drawing the tracks on the circuit board for etching (for example). The main thing - not to spare toner and well warmed up. Good luck. :thumb:

    Combine Ceiling Turret: video card housing - update 01/05/12

    It's time to start making a video card housing.
    3D model its good, but need to check the actual layout and dimensions.
    Natural size mockup from cardboard:
    [​IMG]
    It’s not a advertising, just do not know how to use graphics editors

    [​IMG]

    Place a video card inside:

    Cut from fiberglass side parts of the housing.
    Aluminum darby will determine the angle between the sidewall parts during assembly:

    I was a fibreglasser for quite a few years good to see it used in mods. :thumb:For such a versatile material it seems to be seldom used.
