    I know how you did it..., I was asking about the cutting bit. I just assumed, from the angle of the picture, that you were using a standard flat ended bit utilizing some improvised technical know-how

    Good lord! it's very pretty.

    One Q for you, and a real pet peave of mine w\ a LOT of mods (including my own...) You do all this lovely work on a chassis or creating one from scratch and you're still stuck with this butt-ugly ATX IO shield. My next creation won't have this darn thing, the board will sit inside the case and I'll do breakout cables. I just can't stand looking at the plain old shiny ATX IO shield... ick. Or the standard ATX IO layout, for those who have taken the time :)clap:) to create their own IO cutouts!

    It's because every mobo is unique (pretty much) in it's layout. By leaving that space blank you allow for future upgradablillity. I'm pretty G69T will be remanufacturing that plate out of alluminium to replace the crappy tinplate one.

    I only found this thread today, there should be a permanent link on the main page of the modding section. The attention to detail of this case is utterly flawless, mayb not completely my taste, but i can't help but be amazed with everything you have done.

    Well that's a whole morning of work wasted reading through this thread, think i managed to get about 5 min of designing done (architecture) boss will be happy!!

    Can't wait for next update, bring it on...............

    Fantastic work CNC GOD!!!! I've joined the forum having followed a link to the thread and spent the day reading the whole thing. :baby: :thumb: :clap:

    It's been a long while since I was in the modding mood having grown bored of the stock window cutting, light fixing, cable tidying... jobs that form the majority of modding, but your project has really given me inspiration. Keep up the goodness!!!

    One question... with so many bit of metal screwed together is there any likelihood of vibration noise? Are you employing rubber gromits to keep vibration to a minimum or perhaps precision milling / tooling minimises vibration anyway?

    I agree with Starbuck3733T and Constructacon; to me the ATX IO shield breaks the style of the case.

    Thanks to all! ;)

    Nice CNC work. ;)


    I use a specific Italian cad-cam software for my cnc milling machine. I sent you an private message about their name. ;)


    I have used a standard flat ended bit for the columns working. ;)

    At the moment, I have not definite the hardware options for my Dark Blade mod, I have chosen a standard solution for this detail.....but all pieces are modifiable. ;)

    Thank you Toasty for your bit-tech forum signed and your comment! ;)

    When the cnc milling machine is working, the aluminium vibration noise is low (and absent when I work the big raw material pieces) and the tools noise is absent.

    Bye bye :thumb:

    Nobody says you have to make a plate - I'm advocating the use of a breakout area, or multi-cable conductor to external breakout pigtails.

    G69T: I'm not downing your work by any sense of the imagination - just starting some discussion :)

    I think he was asking if the case will deal with any vibration noise once it is put together? If you are utilizing anything specific in between the joints? (Grommets etc)

    If the case weight estimate is correct at 40-50KG then its going to take a lot to make this case vibrate.

    I thought it was 20 kg so far
    either way it's really heavy
