Thanks Blood even with drilling it to bits it was a hefty filing session lol. I wanted to avoid doing any milling with the new drill press but did it very carefully this time going in 0.5mm steps or about that also checking for it getting hot but was OK, the drilling caused more heat & the filing took extra long with trying hard to not let it bend. Hopefully won't need anymore bits milling & using layers should be enough from now, really appreciate the offer though Kier, bit-tech community is doing awesome. BT community is awesome other than anonymous pesky star trolls pre judging awesome projects & doing it in spite even if they are awesome projects that are completed but I hope that stops, it's a crappy thing to do. Uggugugug wheres me spinach thanks Squigly. Thanks Fonne Fairly small footprint but a bit of a skyscraper thanks Meelobee. I'll have a go at making the first custom fan next so might not have an update today but hopefully tomorrow or the day after at the latest, making the hoop difficult to see the seam will be a fair challenge I think & need to be absolutely sure the fan blades don't go flying off. Things to do on the HTPC. Custom 140mm all aluminium custom fan. Spindicator assembly basic mount shielded from potential shorts. Filling gaps around the front. Cable management holes. The multi curve piece that tidies up the join between the HTPC & stand & gaming rig, I was struggling with working out how I'll make that work well but thanks to Attila doing what he did on his latest I have a good idea now to make a sturdy piece now, some solid material to give it a strong spine that slots in place, bit more design work for that.
