haha robot, wassup.
are you finally going to enact this mod, or just keep talking about it?
um.. hi deadly
If you're wondering, yes i am going to do this, im leaving for a month so ill start in august. Now go away. lol jk
Crimson sky, i am going to give you a shout, id really appreciate some advice!
What a guy *swoon*
i have a cool idea if you got the time and paitence to do it all.
grab some perspex
print out some matrix symbols
attach them to the perspex and dremel arround the prints so you left with solid matrix symbols
lightly sand them
dremel out the symbol on the case
glue the symbols in
get green leds behind the buggers in varying voltages to give different glow strengths
and hey prest 3d effect at the front fo your case
could even use them for power and reset buttons in a different colour
and for full on replace the hdd activity led with green and the symbol will ficker
hope u like
idea came from the anti vandal switch idea.
you know how hard that would be to dremel the code?!
yep thats why i put if you got the time at the top of the message
would look ace tho aye
i think it would be really hard to make it look nice, with a dremel at least.
maybe laser cutting it
icarus, that is an awesome idea, albeit impossible. Dremel disks are just too wide, you'd need a laser-cut. and even then...
but that is an AWESOME IDEA!!!!
hm... ill think about some alternative way to do it.
EDIT- just realized that deadly said to lazer cut it also, but where can you get that done?
can anyone say...LUNAGENLABS?!
sweet idea is it easy to find that kinda thing?
and is it expensive cos might do something like that with a water flaming water drop idea i have. (water droplet in blue with a red flaming border)
its pricey, but some of the best looking stuff you can find.
i have to get this done it would look so cool
how about this
use a vibro saw to make the symbols the tidy them up with a sander of sorts
then rater than cutting the symbols as the symbols are going to be sanded off to make them glow just drill holes in the case glue on and light thru the holes
iam a genius go on admit it j/k
Or instead of paying a fortune to get every one laser cut and then backlight them with different strength LEDs... just get it etched in the window Less potential breakage issues too.
not the same effect m8 this is individual 3d glowing decals
if you want cool software, run a search for ZMatrix, its a BACKGROUND program, it scrolls over whatever background you've got on your screen so you don't have to wait for a screensaver. i've got it running semi-transparent over the vector background in WinXP, and it looks sweet. doesn't take a whole lot of memory either. anyway, it'd go nicely with the theme you've got there.
ok, i downloaded zmatrix and its pretty awesome...
anyways, you know how they have the lcd monitors in the matrix? THey're black and have these really cool burn marks on them; im going to experiment with burning plastic to see what kind of results i can get
Actually, it's the Logos, not the Hammer (can't believe nobody picked up on that one! )
Anyway, this sounds like it could be a REALLY cool mod if you pull it off right. I've never seen that Sentinel model before, and I'm just loving the idea you have for it.
I'd say have the Sentinel half on the top, half on the side, and ripping open a window in the side of the machine. Similar to the "destroyed" look of GoblinTinkerer's Orcish mod, maybe.
yeah, thats eggzactly what i had in mind. Just atach the sentinel arms to the metal scraps...
