    well guys i had to spend some time figuring out how to glue different materials but i solved.
    I have to recreate this effect but without using 3d printing or cnc how to do?

    [​IMG]

    now I create another support that will follow the top profile now it's easy i have a base now ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    perfect fit

    I need a structure already made to fix and here comes this to my mind ...
    a salad bowl ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I try to find the area with the right inclination and cut leaving what I need

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    fixed provisionally

    [​IMG]

    now the problem is how to fix the 2 different materials together the circle is polypropylene while everything else is in plexiglass, the two materials do not seem compatible with common glues
    I have liquid steel I try with this ...

    [​IMG]

    seems to hold very well.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    perfect I would say

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    now it's the turn of the actual "turbine" support I take the exact measurements of the piece and cut with the DREMEL

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have to strengthen the whole structure polypropylene is an ugly beast, I solved it temporarily with liquid steel but I need something more dense and workable, the parts to be glued are many and they must not come off
    after several researches I land on this .. a two-component fiberglass putty ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I must say once it hardens it becomes concrete and is perfect, even if it weighs down the structure a lot.

    [​IMG]

    now it's time to complete with the side element
    I take the measures well fixed procvvsoriamente with glue for methacrylate and after the ditch all with workable putty

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    well fixed with other putty on the main structure

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it will take other small tweaks such as closing some small holes or making some parts smoother, but the bulk of the work is done

    I decided to create a led motherboard tray with relative I / O cover always with leds and themed mod cyberpunk 2077 !!!.
    This tray will be fixed to the support of the case that originally had to support the motherboard, but also given the need to build other parts I decided for this solution
    I start making the I / O panel from scratch, this motherboard does not have one more reason to make it, all the heatsinks of this Z390M PRO4 sponsored by ASROCK will also be painted with a theme! ..
    I trace all the dimensions from the original shield.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    a lot of patience but the result satisfies me ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I took my time and calmly the result came, everything fits together perfectly, measured and measured again many times ..

    [​IMG]

    this tray will substantially consist of two parts, the I / O box and another piece of acrylic left transparent inside on the long side, inside a led strip will be placed that will shoot the light through this acrylic giving a pleasant effect ... the logo will also be illuminated on the top of the box.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I fix everything with cyanomethacrylate glue but I will strengthen everything with other strong glue and putty to eliminate imperfections.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    coat of primer to see where to stick to close any holes ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ready for the final paint job that I will do next, the paints have yet to arrive in the shop ..

    [​IMG]

    now let's start with the support

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I will drill the holes to pass the cables directly on this support
    so I mark the zones .. I work absolutely with precision if I'm wrong I have to redo the whole panel ... I would not be happy ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the hole for the cpu waterblock will also be made
    well guys stay tuned because there will be some good ones ...

    Great idea for the IO cover. I too was going to have my mb try light up with designs but since the motherboard has a light panel behind decided not to and just to have my psu shroud light up. Can't wait to see it all come together. Keep up the great work!:clap:

    hi guys, I proceed on other fronts
    support arrangement to fix the I / O cover on the motherboard I take advantage of a screw already present on the motherboard

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    supports for fixing the panel steel rods cut with a threaded pipe cutter for M3 screws

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    lower "fairing" cover panels and grille fixing for the 200 mm fan
    this side will be quite complex because there will be plates that will be overlapping

    hello everyone, I state that I am speeding up the processing of this mod because the work is so much,
    today is the turn of the front covers ...
    as I always do I start with a cardboard template to see the overall dimensions and folds I can cut and redo as I wish until the result is satisfactory
    only when I'm sure will I cut the acrylic

    [​IMG]

    after this I proceed with the cut

    [​IMG]

    finishing and measurement control

    [​IMG]

    now I will make cuts because part of the panel must not bend but remain straight and have no marks
    I could have done some additional covers but visually it would have been too heavy at the sight of the front design.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    well now there is the most delicate part the bending, I use a self-made bender that I use in all my mods
    this one

    [​IMG]

    place bits of metal there where I don't want the bender to leave heat marks

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and here it is all went well.

    [​IMG]

    these little unfolded bits will allow me to hide the ugly to see shock absorber hooks.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and here they are assembled, they still need to be well finished

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    see you soon guys.
