    Regardless of what method something is made from, a design needs to be imagined and engineered to function correctly in your brain, first.


    Maki's case mod has already won 1st place for me.

    And so begins the rather worrisome journey to Taiwan. Since Exsectus is going to be exhibited there, I needed to figure out how to get it there safely. Now I've not had the best track record with these things, so I decided that some overkill was needed. The other issue was that I didn't have very long between the announcement and the shipping date (today/tomorrow), so getting something like a Pelicase isn't an option. However, building a shipping crate is certainly doable.

    Wow thanks Bill!

    Yeah I had a PC completely destroyed a year and a half back when I sent it to my brother states-side. That was packed in a custom made flight case which was itself wrapped, padded and then placed into another box.

    Not taking any chances this time, at all. That crate is made from 18mm ply and braced with 22mm, heat treated wood and 40mm aluminium section. Inside it's lined with 14cm of foam and bubble wrap, in the centre is the original case box that contains the rig, itself covered over in bubble wrap and that foam sheeting stuff.

    So it's really been quite the last couple months. Computex was an absolute blast, thankfully Exsectus managed to get there all in one piece. Fast forward a few weeks and this turned up at my door

    Some coolant leaked out of one of the ports (they were only lightly plugged) but that was all

    So that's the return survived! Thermaltake did a great job of packing this baby up again, now all I need to do it get it all ready and updated for iSeries in August.

    I was also sent some goodies, going to be modding these to fit the build.
